Airline Simulation Games - Looking for Recommendations

Tue Jun 21, 2016 3:12 am

I'm looking for an airline simulation game to play in my spare time. I've tried Airlines 7, but the interface is kind of clunky.

Are there any other airline simulation games for PCs that are worth checking out?

Well, there is a pretty good game called Airwaysim, but it's an online game tough. However, their in-game demand system is not very accurate.
For example: CGK-SUB only have like 500-ish daily pax, while in reality there's almost 50 daily flight. But somehow there is 450-is pax want to fly from CGK to YYZ daily lol!

But if you want a fun game where it is completely normal for an airline to operate 1000+ aircraft, go for airline empires!! :D

I was hoping for something offline. I'm not a fan of online games where I need to log on every day to play.

It depends. If you want really realistic flight physics and a really interactive sim, go for XPlane 10. If you want more of a "game" flight simulator that isn't as real feeling i'd go with FSX. I have used both, however I now only use XPlane.

I'd sugest Microsoft Flight Simulator X. It's fun to play offline as well as online. It's only $7 on Steam right now due to the Steam Summer Sale that will be going on till july 4th.

Not the kind of game I was looking for. I do have FS:X Steam edition, but I'm looking for more of the route planning/business simulation type than the flight simulation. But thank you for the feedback.

I know you wanted "offline" however, Airline Empires is a free web-based simulator that is pretty decent.

Yep, as said above I really recommend Airline Empires. I used to play Cyber Airlines, anyone remember that?

Also, Airline Empires is free :D

Hi guys, I stumbled upon this thread, looking for sim games as well and I also found pretty fresh title that came out on 10 Oct.
Biggest advantage: it doesn't require powerful machine to run.

"Take Off - The Flight Simulator" may not be the the most complicated simulator, but it's a lot of fun.
It's more like an arcade than full feldged simulator with various missions and ability to run your own airlines.

What I found that Take Off is a conversion from mobile version released last year by Astragon and Jujubee studio.

Here is the game Steam shop webiste: http://store.steampowered.com/app/65...ght_Simulator/

I think the best free airlines game is airlines-empire. The game is very complete, with a lot of airports and differents aircraft in the database, but the game system is not always realistic. And some airlines (like my airlines before!) abuse of the game system to make a lot of money. For example, my airlines had a DOP (Daily Operating Profit) of 3 billion dollars a day. And I had more cash that the GDP of whole United States. But if you play realistic (with less aicraft use, more services on board, lower the prices) it can be a good game.
