We are currently experiencing some problems with the website freezing after entering a world. We are aware of the issue and are trying har to fix it as fast as possible.
We apologise for any inconvenience

One of the hard things about making new logos and liveries is coming up with a colour scheme and a logo. Fear not, as I have collected a selection of websites that can help you in the process. I haven't tested all of them, but at least the colour generators should be login-free. Logo generators are free too, but some might want you to make a user before downloading the logo.

Colour generators:

Game Updates / Updated airport passenger numbers
« on: May 10, 2017, 06:08:03 PM »
Hello airline managers!

During the past few months we have been updating our airports with city names, states/provinces and - most importantly - up-to-date passenger numbers. Currently we have more than 1000 airports with data from 2016 and around 200 new airports resulting from new and updated statistics data. As great as it is, we at Airline Mogul still have a long way to go. Some countries publish frequent air transport statistics which is very useful, but other countries have no database or no information that is easily available. This kind of research takes a lot of time to perform, especially if you have to search around for data from about 200 countries.
This is where your help counts: Maybe you have information about recent airport passenger statistics, maybe you know somebody who works in the industry. Whichever the case, if you have official statistics from any of the countries mentioned below, we would be more than happy to have a look. You can send the data to our staff email :staff: and we will make sure to add the data to the game as soon as possible
To show our appreciation for your help, any data that leads to updated passenger data will be rewarded with up to 100 tokens!

What data is useful to us? Good question! We prefer data from 2016 and the same source (e.g. national statistics bureau) for the whole country. Of course, individual airport statistics are okay too, as is data from earlier years as long as it is the most recent. We can't use statistics from Wikipedia unless they have a source - and then we would prefer a link to the source.
When will I see the new passenger numbers? Any new world created after the new passenger numbers have been added to the game will contain the new passenger numbers.
When will I see the new airport I added? New airports will appear right after we add them to the game. You might have already noticed the new airports added recently.

This is a complete list of countries we do not have up to date data for; the list is split in two, the first list is countries we have no or very old data for, the second list is countries we have recent data or most data for. It can say something like 'Only Minsk' meaning we have data for Minsk but not other airports, or it can say '2013' which means the data we have is from 2013. Countries we have received data for will be crossed out from the list.

Game Strategy / Aircraft that can fly Sydney - Europe one stop
« on: February 23, 2017, 10:18:34 PM »
Hi guys,

I am currently in a tight spot aircraft wise. I need to replace my MD-11s with something new, but I cannot seem to find a worthy replacement. The main purpose of my MD-11s is one-stop flights from Australia to Europe and USA. A flight Sydney - Bangkok -  Frankfurt takes almost 24 hours one way on an MD-11, but it's possible. No other similar aircraft can do that as far as I can see: The 747-400 has too long turn around time, the B777-200 is slow and so is the A340.
It seems to me that reducing the turn around times would be the only place to optimize here, as only the Ilyushin Il-96 can fly as long as the MD-11 one-stop. Also the B747-300, but it's really, really fast.
My wish is to have either only Boeing or Airbus aircraft, but which to choose? Will there be a faster aircraft in the next few years? Or should I "cheat" and make the stopover a mini-hub and flying my aircraft from there (instead of e.g. Sydney-Bangkok-Paris)? Or just keep the MD-11s going forever?

Year: 1998
Code: [Select]
MD11: speed: 510, turn time: 1,64, range: 7980, max distance with one stop: 10567
B744: speed: 493, turn time: 2,10, range: 8429, max distance with one stop:  9765
B772: speed: 481, turn time: 1,76, range: 8820, max distance with one stop:  9850
A342: speed: 475, turn time: 1,68, range: 8510, max distance with one stop:  9804
A332: speed: 467, turn time: 1,17, range: 6370, max distance with one stop: 10113
Il96: speed: 485, turn time: 1,16, range: 7475, max distance with one stop: 10519
My airline, AussieWings

Airline Reports / [PW 3154] AussieWings
« on: December 04, 2016, 01:40:12 PM »
AussieWings signing big deal with Airbus!



After long negotiations with different manufacturers, AussieWings have signed a contract for seven A310s with an option for seven more to be delivered later this year. This is a part of the big expansion plan underway which will connect Australia and AussieWings to no more than six continents all over the globe with direct flights to Australia. We will double our number of overseas destinations up to 20! All our big Australian bases and Auckland will get new flights, together with some overseas destinations.

We will still keep the destinations a secret, but maybe you can take a guess at where we will fly soon?

Airline Reports / [PW3039] Biz Express news
« on: January 08, 2016, 09:29:48 PM »
Biz Express is celebrating its entrance into the Compare alliance, adding three new hubs to a world class alliance. The business model is built around small aircraft and frequent flights, ensuring maximum connectivity. But it's not all for work, we do connect vacation destinations up to twice daily, as seen on the map below. This includes the same good service as on all our other routes.

Vacation routes

While vacation is good, we do have very good connections within France and Germany, from Paris and Nice, and Munich, respectively. Each city is usually served twice daily per hub shown, some cities have more services.

French domestic routes (and Geneva and Luxembourg)


Munich domestic routes and routes to Austria

The livery takes two weeks to paint on each aircraft, that time is used to make sure the interior fittings and other equipment works as expected, and beyond that. We always have the quality in mind for our dear and beloved business travellers.

I have just started playing in this world, and it seems pretty nice. There are not many players, all of Asia and South America is free! It's from 1984 to present day, and you start with three Boeing 737-200.

I have noticed there are several inconsistencies between our map provider and our airport codes. It would be nice to know which airports have wrong codes, so if any of you can post any known airports that show faulty maps, please post them below :)

Currently known bad airports:

Suggestions / View aircraft page suggestion
« on: October 10, 2013, 08:00:13 AM »
Seen in the world 2677:
http://www.airlinemogul.com/airlinemogul/world_info.php?wid=2677&t=1&post=220

Quote from: Air Portugal
I would like to know if it's possible to add maintenace costs for each plane on the "View Aircraft" separator?

I think that would make it easier to control costs and know when and what plane to replace first.

Quote from: 1993matias
When you go to the individual aircraft's page, you should be able to se the maintenance costs for that particular aircraft. Is that what you mean? Or are you reffering to another placement of the information?

Quote from: Air Portugal
I'm reffering to another place in order to be able to sort planes by main costs instead of having to click each plane. That would make it easier to control the planes to replace.

Before the changes we would replace planes by ID and i have been doing that, but today i checked each plane individually and find out that my replacement policy is wrong.

Any thoughts?

Suggestions / Too many aircraft?
« on: September 25, 2013, 07:52:19 AM »
Something interesting I saw on the in-game forum of world 2707:

http://www.airlinemogul.com/airlinemogul/world_info.php?wid=2677&t=45

Quote
This game is not rational if we look from the fleet owned by players, there are players who have more than a thousand aircraft. MY question is, where the plane was stored? and how can an airline has a fleet of aircraft that much?
As we know hangar provided by the airport manager was not possible until a thousand more in one airport or that airport must be huge to make it possible
My sugestion,AM must make rule about fleet.
because the player will feel bored if the fleet is much,different if the fleet is limited.
and the player would not want to choose the right aircraft for his airline.
that is airline managerSmile

Or AM just make limit for aircraft can be operated for his/her airline, because we can also play with lease aircraft

Best Regard,
Wahyu Akrabien

And this is the reply from another player:

Quote
Many airlines purchase aircraft that they dont use. No wonder you sometimes see aircraft offloaded on the market with zero circles, but a bit aged, or even sometimes very aged.

i personally do not support the idea of flee restrictions, but I think airport slots algorithm should include space needed for inactive fleet. i do understand storage is discouraged by AM, but perhaps any unused aircraft should be considered to be occupying airport slots, unless its under storage, and storage space should be created by airlines just the same way airlines construct terminals in AM. maintanance charges should also be applicable to unused aircraft occupying airport slots, but lower maintanance charges should be applicable to those in the hangars or storage slots.

What do you think? Do we need storage space? Do airlines grow too much?

Bugs / [W2677] Airline value drops when ordering new aircraft
« on: August 08, 2013, 01:44:33 PM »
I saw this bug on the in-game forum:

Quote
On the changeover from 21/7/95 to 22/7/95, my airline value decreased $7.7million while everyone else around me increased at their normal rate between $15 million and $32 million.  The previous "day", my airline had increased just over $17 million.

I don't see any excessive maintenance charges, misc expense is normal, DOC didn't change, loads are the same.  I can't figure out why I just had a $24 million swing from gain to loss.

Any help would be appreciated.

Which got this reply:

Quote
Did you order your first A320 around the same dates? I dont have access to admin interface, but Am just trying to help to link things here. That also happened to my airline a few months ago, which I thought was attributed to the first purchase of an ATR, therefore adding a new type (uncomonality) to the fleet. Perhaps I wss supposed to flag the drastic reduction the same way you did for further investigation. When it happened we were number 64, but suddenly we dipped down several levels below

@Stephen: It might have something to do with the new maintenance formula?

@Anyone else: Have you had any similar experiences when ordering aircraft? Have you seen other airline's value drop suddenly?
