A decade after the best-selling Airline Tycoon comes the long awaited sequel to the legendary tongue-in-cheek economic 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!
• Explore real world airports, from Moscow to New York, 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
• Jump into the action as 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 unrest in a global hotspot? 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!
