The city of Toulouse is located in the south west of France and is an important location for the Midi-Pyrénées region. It is also nicknamed "la ville rose" (the pink city) because of its numerous red brick buildings. The suburb of Blagnac hosts the international airport Toulouse-Blagnac.
The airport is situated approx. 7km to the north west of the city centre and with its 6.5 million yearly passengers it is the sixth biggest in France. It is also the company airport of the aircraft manufacturers Airbus and ATR. The airports history can look back to the maiden flights of aircraft like the Concorde or the A380.
The infrastructure is always adapting to the ever changing rising air traffic demands. There are constant changes and extensions in progress, the latest were some new aircraft parking positions, a new hangar and the new Terminal D which was taken into service in 2010 to cope with the expected passenger numbers of 8.5 million in the year 2015.
Toulouse-Blagnac offers numerous national and international flights. The most common national destinations are Brest, Marseille and Paris Charles-De Gaulle. International destinations are Barcelona, Dublin, Rome and Frankfurt.

Conclusion by simFlight.com:
"I absolutely loved this scenery! It has some on the best visuals of any airport I’ve seen and deserves to be recognized for that. If you are looking for a large airport that will accommodate any type of aircraft this is one you will definitely want to give some serious thought to."
Conclusion by asn.aerosoft.com (Aerosoft Sim News):
"For value for money, this Airport Toulouse is a very good purchase. There`s a lot of scenery for your money. The airport itself and the huge Airbus assembly infrastructure is all here and it`s extremely well recreated. It does reflect its FSX heritage and there is a need for more items between buildings such as fences, billboards and the small stuff that fills in some blank areas to break up the buildings just placed on a flat surface effect. A few more aircraft and associated equipment on the assembly side of the airport would certainly be a plus. The scenery is up to-date with the D4 Terminal and the different style of textures to show the different periods of the airport’s history and that adds well to it`s benefits. Lighting, as noted ,is excellent and so is the X-Plane10 integration (OSM), which is very important to the overall view of the custom scenery. Overall, great value, very good scenery and a great addition to your X-Plane Scenery collection."
