About the Game

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!

Key Features:


  • 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
  • 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 war in Russia? 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!

Wow... I am so glad this game was nearly free from humble bundle... It was worth the laughs of everyone in the room with HOW TERRIBLE IT WAS and my bumbling reations before ragequitting in the tutorial!

I honestly thought I was going be playing an Aerobiz type game and instead was greeted with one of the most confusing, USER-UNFRIENDLY game I have ever seen.

If your tutorial alone causes confusion as to what to do next and then causes rage quits, THEN YOU HAVE MADE A TERRIBLE GAME!

Also... WHY DO I HAVE TO REGISTER WITH SOME OTHER BS LAUNCHER TO PLAY A GAME I GOT ON STEAM!?!?

The voiceovers are terrible, the art is terrible, the user interface is considered a form of torture in most the civlized world.

I don't even think the people that made this know anything about airplanes... I don't even think they have ever flown on an airplane before!

This game is an insult to humanity there is nothing really new from the orginal and the only real improvment is a visual one which for me personally isnt enough i value gameplay over shiny tiles on a floor

You know what'd be great, Steam? If there was a way for me to know before buying that in order to play this game I'd have to sign up for some really sketchy third-party email list! So I idled on the "MAKE A NEW ACCOUNT AND GET ALL OUR WONDERFUL OFFERS" page for 5 minutes so Steam would allow me to even post this review. I was jonesing for an aerobiz-like experience, but I don't really want to play this game enough to sign up for even more stupid spam in my life. Of course there's no such thing as refunds et cetera, but what can you do? Lesson learned, I guess.

Couldn't get it to work with Win 8.1. Didn't even work in Win 7 compatible mode...

EDIT: Received official word from tech support that game is not certified to be compatible with Win 8 and later...

Honestly I hate to boo a game but when I heard Airline tycoon I thought: I make up a airline and try to run it at a profit. However this game seems to be about micro-managment, if your looking for a tycoon game where you can set up and reap the rewards without micro management, crapy tutorials, complex gameplay that is not explained... look somewhere else. after pounding my head against the tutorial (and there is only 1) trying to figure out what I missed and beat the first level on easy I continually fail because the competition beats me to 80%. This game sounded good, and I bought it on sale, but it was a massive waste of money.

Maybe if they patched in a proper tutorial to explain how to raise your various semi-hidden statistics it would be worth playing again but I'm not holding my breath. Don't waste your time, money, or your sanity.

Do Not Buy, not the base game not the gold edition.
Lets start from the top, airline tycoon 1 was a cult classic one among the best tycoon games, you are a airline owner and have to manage your airline on various mission along with 3 other competitors. The first game did this perfectly with great humor and a wonderful gameplay , incorporating REAL planes and what not , its a masterpiece.....

So come to the present , Balive releases this horror as the sequel to the first game...by gods its horrible it totally ditched everything that made the first game great, Game runs on a rotten engine , doubt anyone would play it more than a hour, no Real plane names, No humor nothing just a bunch of guys with big Heads running around ackwardly.

To Pour more salt to the injury
-They implemented the suggestions made by the community as DLCs
-They are done with the game just repackaged it as gold edition , just check the forums the game is still horrible
-dont expect even cards for the game http://forum.kalypsomedia.com/showthread.php?tid=20275
-modding is bare minimum , a few exist but dont do much to improve the game

Avoid it , unless its on a massive sale if you want the real airline tycoon experience get the first game on gamersgate, Hope it comes to steam someday

Sad to see us the fans of classic get such a horrible sequel
Not so epic screenshots of the game...
