- In the game acceleration panel, there is an option to skip the game time to 06:00 AM after you enter the night period (06:00 PM, 18:00) of the game. This will only work if there are no passengers are in the terminal, and no plane is moving. If passengers or flights start moving before 06:00, the game returns to the default speed.
