— Welcome to Airline Enterprise —

Currently simulating 225 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

January 3, 2021 - Update 1.1.9

Income tax is now paid on a monthly basis instead of a weekly basis. Income tax will be paid at 12:00 UTC on the 1st day of every month. The amount paid will be equal to 20% of the previous month's net income. "7 Day Net Income" on the airline overview page has been updated to "Month to Date Net Income" to allow you to track spending. This figure is updated daily at 06:00 UTC.

September 20, 2020 - Update 1.1.5

Small update to implement some minor bugfixes and add income tax calculatons

1. Time Remaining on the active flights page improved so that it now handles all flights correctly regardless of how far out the departure is. Also aligned the date time format on the active flights page and the airline overview page to match.
2. For the first 5 instant lease deliveries, the game will no longer allow you lease the aircraft if you do not have enough cash to pay for both the 1st week's lease and the cabin configuration
3. Ability to view aircraft details has been added, in the case that the user has not yet created their airline
4. Income tax of 20% has been implemented, and will be deducted along with the rest of the weekly costs every Friday at Noon UTC. Airlines only pay income tax if they turned an overall net profit in the previous 7 day period (Fri thru Thurs). Income tax is a non-operating expense.

September 19, 2020 - Patch 1.1.4

Bugfix regarding incorrect demand calculations on routes with no competition

1. Bugfix for incorrect calculation of demand boost, on routes where an airline is the sole operator. This demand boost is now limited to + ~10%, whereas previously this was incorrectly providing a boost of + ~40%.
2. Bugfix for demand remaining stable even after an airline has flown the route for some time, on routes where an airline is the sole operator. Demand will now correctly decrease over time as the airline operates the route and consumes a portion of the original demand.

September 18, 2020 - Patch 1.1.3

Patch 1.1.3 has been applied which addresses several major issues. Please see the changelog below.

1. Modifications made to the fuel price algorithm to prevent unreasonably low or high fuel prices
2. Bugfix for the transaction values not being displayed on the upcoming transactions tab on the ledger page
3. Bugfix for airlines not being charged for maintenance checks. The cost of the maintenance check is now recorded on the ledger as an upcoming transaction and will be charged upon completion of the check.
4. Bugfix for incorrectly calculated passenger capacity when flying routes close to the maximum range of the aircraft
5. Bugfix for incorrect calculation of available cash balance when bidding on auctions

September 14, 2020 - Hotfix 1.1.1

Hotfix applied to address some issues since the reset.

1. Patch for the "Cannot read property of 'geometry' of undefined" error - the route map is no longer displayed on the airline detail page if the airline does not operate any routes.
2. The "Lease a New Gate" button was added back to the Gate Management page
3. Max reserve range and fuel burn of several aircraft have been updated:

Boeing 737-100
Boeing 737-200 Advanced
Boeing 737-700ER
Boeing 737-800
Boeing 737-900ER

4. The game now properly calculates hours remaining for each maintenance check for aircraft that spawn on the used market
5. Bugfix for the demand formula counting your own flights as competition when calculating the demand boost for flying a route with no competition.

September 13, 2020 - Version 1.1 - Game Reset & Changelog - Game is now Open!

The game has been reset, and we are now in BETA Version 1.1 of Airline Enterprise. Please read through the full changelog here.

The game guide has been updated, so you may want to give it a quick read through.

The changes made in this version should lead to an overall more realistic experience, with the main goal being to address the exponential growth that was able to be achieved by large airlines previously. The game will continue to be updated and developed as we move forward with various features, enhancements and bug fixes.

If you encounter an issue, please report it on our issue tracker here.

August 29, 2020 - Reset September 6th

The upcoming full game reset is planned to take place on September 6th

August 23, 2020 - Full Game Reset

We will be performing a full game reset in the coming weeks - exact date TBA. All changes from the Test Environment will be implemented, except there will be some adjustments to the used market/auction systems, to ensure decent aircraft availability. Other minor enhancements are also planned, full information & changelog to come at a later date.

May 28, 2020 - Scheduled Maintenance May 30 2020

There will be scheduled maintenance on May 30 2020 at 17:00 UTC. We will be performing regular server systems upgrades and updates. The game will be unavailable during this time. The forums will also be unavailable at this time, however, the issue tracker and chat should remain online.

See the forums for more details or join us in chat.

April 4, 2020 - Auto-Scheduling Optimization & Other Updates

We have implemented parallel processing into the route auto-scheduling script, along with making some additional database optimizations. This should cut the time it takes to auto-schedule routes each day in half. In the coming days we will try to also apply this same optimization to other areas of the game, such as the scripts that calculate route awareness.

A bug with the calculation of fuel prices has been fixed. Instead of taking a 7 day average and calculating a new price based off that, it was simply averaging the entire last 2 months data. Also, fuel prices should start to drop to around the $2 mark shortly.

Transfer flights no longer require a gate to be leased at the destination airport. You can now transfer aircraft to any airport in range and that meets the runway requirements, without having to lease a gate first.
