"Airline Tycoon is like any good simulation – easy to pick up, devilishly difficult to master." - StrategyInformer
"Airline Tycoon 2 is a worthy successor to the original classic. It's strengths are convincing characters and well-chosen voice-over artists." - GamingXP
More than 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!

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!
