Selection of Base City
At the beginning of the game you must select a city that your airline will be based. Selecting large cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Paris or London will help provide a jump start to the airline. These large cities have major airline routes going through them, which means there are lots of customers travelling all over the world, routed through your main headquarters.
Establishing the Best Routes
The first route completed in the game should be the best possible route. Routes such as New York to Los Angeles or New York to Chicago are routes that are popular with customers. These routes will have consistently filled flights that can be run everyday or multiple times a day. Establish these types of routes between major cities before developing other routes, such as to Honolulu, which is not as popular a flight.
There are several routes, including the popular routes, that have many airlines flying between cities. In situations in which you want your company to enter into a route, select smaller planes to fly the route. Doing so reduces costs and the flights will be filled to capacity, making the most money on the investment into the route.
There are a number of items in which you can invest your money while playing the game. You should spend to the maximum in three areas: HR, Maintenance and Advertising. Human resources make sure the best people are working for your company. Maintenance keeps the planes flying without incident. Advertising brings customers to the airline. Once these areas reach 100 rating, you can scale back investments in these areas.
The value of the airline is one of the key indicators to separate you from the competition in the minds of the customers. To increase the value of your airline, select long routes with the best possible planes. The game's customers appreciate the direct flights the long route provides and the expensive plane adds to the experience. Your value levels will appreciate the boost.
