Just four months after releasing Incheon (RKSI) International Airport product for P3DV4, PacSim has again released another Asian airport, Hiroshima (RJOA) International Airport P3DV4.
Hiroshima Airport (???? Hiroshima Kuko) (IATA: HIJ, ICAO: RJOA) is an airport in the city of Mihara, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. Located 50 km (31 mi) east of Hiroshima, it is the largest airport in the Chugoku region. The New Hiroshima Airport was opened for public use in 1993 as a replacement for the old Hiroshima Airport, which was renamed Hiroshima-Nishi Airport. The old airport was located in a more central waterfront location, but was too small to handle widebody aircraft and could not be expanded. In 1994, the New Hiroshima Airport was renamed to just Hiroshima Airport.
The airport's single runway (10/28) opened with a length of 2,500 m (700 m longer than Hiroshima-Nishi). The runway was then extended to 3,000 m (9,843 ft) in 2001, and its ILS was upgraded to CAT-IIIa in 2008 and CAT-IIIb in 2009. Eighty percent of the airport's domestic traffic is to and from Haneda Airport in Tokyo. The Hiroshima-Haneda route is the fifth-busiest domestic air route in Japan. The only international routes available at this airport are to other Asian countries such as Singapore (Silk Air), South Korea (Air Seoul, Asiana), Taiwan (China Airlines), Hong Kong (Hong Kong Express), Thailand (Nok Air) and China (Air China, China Eastern).
