Airlines Operating for other Airlines

10 August 2020 - 06:17 PM

I can't remember the proper term but I mean like what US airlines do with their regional carriers. An airline wishing to have flights operated for them would put out contracts, saying I want this many frequencies on this route with this much capacity, and I'll pay this much. The "big" airline would pay for the gate, slots, in flight service and receive the ticket sales. "Small" airline would pay for the crew, aircraft, and fuel, and receive a set amount per month from the "big" airline. This would be a cool way to replicate regional airlines but also wet lease operators and such as well.


Ability to Merge Airlines

This may be a bit of a major change, but I think it would be very cool if you could add the ability to merge airlines. I would be kind of like shared control but where one player’s airline is completely absorbed into the other. I think it would add a lot of realism to the way airlines develop over time. You would likely set an amount of money an airline must pay to buy another based on the value of the airline being purchased. Also you could only allow airlines in the same country or airlines in countries with open sky agreements (i.e. Australia/New Zealand, EU) to merge. This would also offer a second option for those who wish to cease operations. I’m not sure you could allow airlines owned by the same person to merge...

Wanting to share control of a few airlines

06 March 2020 - 10:31 AM

Hi everyone,
I currently have quite a few airlines I am running and would like to share control of a few of them as I don’t have enough time to run them all. The carriers I am willing to share control of are:
Eagle Airways (R3), a South African airline
Brazilian Air (O1), a major South American airline
I quite willing to let whoever takes over do pretty much whatever, so long as they keep the airlines going and help them expand!
