Become the CEO of an international airline in Airline Tycoon 2, Kalypso Media's humorous sequel to the 1998 business management sim by Spellbound Entertainment. Your goal is to turn a fledgling airline into a global leader while managing employees, business expenses, quirky customers and a fleet of custom-designed planes.
Hands-on managers will be able to explore their 3D airport with one of four playable avatars, allowing them to see first-hand how hard (or how little) their employees are working. Players will also have to deal with rival airlines that will use underhanded tactics to rule the skies. Random events will periodically pop up that offer a chance to make more money. These range from giving the Pope a flight, finding a way through volcanic ash clouds and more.
