— Welcome to Airline Enterprise —

Currently simulating 340 airlines

Airline Enterprise is a real time, web based airline management game that puts you in control of your own virtual airline. As CEO, you have a lot of decisions to make. Do you purchase aircraft, or lease them? Which cities do you want to serve, and what routes should you fly? All of these decisions will come together to create your own unique airline that competes in real time with other players from around the world.

We are currently in the public beta phase of testing. You may register an account and play the game, but just keep in mind you may run into bugs or issues along the way. The goal of public beta is to address as many of these issues as we can before officially launching the game.

Airline Enterprise is and always will be completely free to play. There are no hidden fees, advertisements or in-game purchases. Before you play, check out the Getting Started guide as well as the complete Game Guide. You may also want to browse or join our Forums for more information about the game, and to chat with fellow players and game developers.

Game News & Updates

August 16, 2018 - Scheduled Maintenance August 17 2018

There will be scheduled maintenance on August 17 at 20:00 GMT/UTC. We will be performing operation system upgrades and updates. When completed, we will also update some core software and game components that is compatible with the new operation system. Both the game AND forums will be unavailable during this time. However, the issue tracker and chat will remain in service.

The previous scheduled maintenance performed did not include operation system upgrades, as the operation system provider delayed their release of the upgrades without announcing a new release date.

Currently, there is a 3 hour window for this maintenance. However, it is anticipated that it will not require the entire maintenance window.

You can always find the most up to date information on the chat. If you have any questions, or need help converting the time, let sw889432 know either by posting in this thread, in the chat, a private message in game or on the forum.


July 26, 2018 - Major Changes Coming

There are several major updates planned for the next couple of months.

The first update will be the new IFE configuration system, that will hopefully be live within the next week. Along with this will be the removal of the Economy Plus class. Following the IFE system will be the IFS system, that will allow you to create service profiles and assign them to your routes.

A revamp of the reputation system is also going to be implemented. This will change the way that reputation is earned. Once IFE and IFS are launched, your flights will have their own reputation based on your service level, legroom, comfort, etc. The average reputation of your flights will determine your airline's overall reputation level. You will no longer gain a certain amount of reputation by completing a flight. To move up the ranks you must improve your service. Airlines will be ranked by a star system, 0.5* through 5* at half-star increments. This will help differentiate airlines from one another and allow you to compare your airline to other airlines with a similar star rating. It will also differentiate types of airlines from one another, for example low cost carriers will be much cheaper to operate, however their rating will be lower. Full service carriers will be more expensive to operate, but their reputation will be higher, so they can charge higher ticket prices to make up for the increased cost of operations. The goal of this change is to extend the playable life of the game as well as put an end to the exponential growth of airlines.

The fourth and final major update will be political restrictions. These will be replicated as realistically as technically possible, but essentially every route you operate must start or end from your home country with a few exceptions, one being if you are based in the EU, you can operate any domestic flight within the EU. International flights (outside of the EU) would still be required to start and end from your home country even if you are based in the EU.

There is no specific timeline for all of these updates beyond IFE being released sometime next week. A lot of changes have to be made in the database and back-end to accommodate these updates and it will take some time to implement all of them.


July 15, 2018 - Bombardier --> Airbus, and Some Additions

The Bombardier CS100 and CS300 aircraft models were recently acquired by Airbus, and this change has been mirrored in-game. The CS100 is now the A220-100 and the CS300 is now the A220-300. Additionally the maximum seats of the A220-100 have been updated to 135 per the official Airbus website. No other stats for the two aircraft were changed.

Additionally the A330-900neo is now available to purchase, as is the Cessna Grand Caravan EX.

Work is continuing on the new IFE and IFS systems. IFE will likely be released first, with the ability to design and assign custom cabin configurations to your aircraft. IFS will follow suit with the ability to design various service configurations and assign them to your routes.


July 12, 2018 - Schedule Maintenance July 28 2018

There will be scheduled maintenance on July 28 at 04:00 GMT/UTC. We will be performing operation system upgrades and updates. When completed, we will also update some core software and game components that is compatible with the new operation system. Both the game AND forums will be unavailable during this time. However, the issue tracker and chat will remain in service.

Currently, there is a 2 hour window for this maintenance. However, it is anticipated that it will not require the entire maintenance window.

You can always find the most up to date information on the chat. If you have any questions, or need help converting the time, let sw889432 know either by posting in this thread, in the chat, a private message in game or on the forum.


July 8, 2018 - Change Delivery Location

You can now change the delivery location of undelivered aircraft after you have placed the lease or purchase order. To do this, click on the aircraft's registration on the fleet overview page, and scroll down to the new "Delivery Options" section. Choose a new airport to deliver the aircraft to from the drop down list, and the aircraft will be placed there upon delivery. There is no charge for this.


June 30, 2018 - Route Scheduling Fix & Edit Airline Details

A few updates to share from this past week. First, we have identified and fixed a bug with the route scheduling logic that would sometimes cause routes to schedule in the incorrect order, which would then put the aircraft in the wrong location and would break the route and not allow it to continue scheduling. If you were having issues with routes scheduling incorrectly we encourage you to try your routes again and see if your issues are fixed.

Secondly, you can now edit your airline IATA code, callsign, and a new feature, specifying your CEO's name. This is useful for roleplay purposes or if you just want to give your airline more character and add a personal touch. To edit your airline details, click the icon on the airline overview page, located next to your airline name at the top of the page. Keep in mind that changing your airline name will reduce your reputation and cost a significant amount of money depending on the size of your airline, however you can change your IATA code, callsign, and CEO name as many times as you wish without penalty.

We are still working on the IFE and IFS update, it's been delayed a bit due to the server outage and subsequent recovery process, but it is in the works and hopefully we will have more to share on that front soon.


June 24, 2018 - Aircraft Families Fixed Maintenance Cost

Fixed maintenance costs for aircraft families has now been implemented. Each aircraft family now has a fixed weekly cost in order to operate that family - these can be viewed on the aircraft research page. These costs can add up if you operate a large number of aircraft families. The first round of family maintenance costs will be deducted next Friday at Noon UTC, so you have about 5 days to make changes to your fleet configurations if you want to minimize your maintenance costs.

You can read more info and participate in discussions by reading this thread on our forums.


June 23, 2018 - Server Upgrade & Game Recovery

We have upgraded and optimized our servers again to be able to better handle the increased loads and higher traffic, as well as fixed the issue that was causing abnormally high server usage. The game should be running smoothly again - thank you to everyone for your patience during this maintenance period. A few things to note:

Routes were deactivated as part of the maintenance, so you will have to re-activate them.
Flights were cancelled, the only ones remaining in the system are flights currently in progress.
Aircraft will likely need to be transported back to the starting positions for their assigned routes via quick flights.
I have synced up aircraft status and locations so you should not encounter any ERROR modes or incorrect status icons - let us know if you run into any of these issues.

Additionally all airlines have had their 2 week reset limit zeroed out, so everybody is eligible to reset their airline if you wish to do so. For more information and discussion see this thread in our forums.


June 19, 2018 - Server Downtime

We recently experienced some server outages - we are working on a root cause analysis and will hopefully have a fix soon. For now the game is back up, but you may still experience another "502" or "504" server error in the near future. Users have reported some flight duplications, we are aware and think it is solely related to the server outage and subsequent recovery process when the game came back online and tried to catch up with the flight processing.


June 10, 2018 - Renew/Extend Aircraft Lease

The ability to renew/extend aircraft leases has been added to the game. To renew a lease, go to the aircraft details page by clicking the registration number on the fleet overview page. At the bottom of the aircraft details page, you can select the new lease terms under the Lease Options section. The lease term you select here will be added on to your current lease term, and your weekly lease payment will be re-adjusted to account for the new lease term. The maximum lease term is 3 years.
