Dominate the Skies in Airline Tycoon 2

A decade after the release of Airline Tycoon comes the long awaited sequel to the simulation that puts players in the role of CEO of an international airline. Airline Tycoon 2 will challenge players to run a modern airline, design unique airplanes and grow a run-down carrier into a globally recognized company that passengers practically beg to fly. Airports worldwide are waiting to be explored, but beware – your rivals never rest! Crafty opponents are also working to dominate the skies… and they won’t let anything stand in the way of their goals!

Airline Tycoon 2 is being published by Kalypso Media for PC. Key features of the game will include:

  • Explore real world airports, from Russia to Venezuela, with realistic travel conditions and passenger volumes
  • Build your ideal fleet of planes – use the in-game editor to craft inexpensive mass-transportation “Greyhounds in the sky” or unique, luxury jets that spoil the elite
  • Select one of four playable avatars with unique strengths and weaknesses
  • Explore your home airport in full 3D, while bossing your employees around and expanding your blossoming airline; you might even meet VIPs at the airport lounge
  • Test your management mettle in a challenging business environment as you schedule flight plans, coordinate arrivals and departures and balance income and expenses – all to grow profit and enhance your airline’s global reputation
  • Random events bring variety to the game: The Pope wants a special flight? Civil war in Russia? Volcanic ash clouds above Europe? If you act quickly, you can profit from these events!
  • Sabotage! Annoy and slow down your opponents with devious actions. But beware – your adversaries may just pay you back in kind!
