Tips and Tricks[edit | edit source]

  • In the overview panel, there is an option to skip the game time to 04:00 AM after you enter the night period of the game. This will only work if no passengers are in the terminal.
  • In the operations panel, there is an option to auto-accept GA flights.
  • Make sure that when starting, leave space for fuel tanks and vehicle depots which you will need later.
  • Never use single-square width roads, it always ends badly. Always go two ways. For services roads too.
