Your task:
Coordinate the starting procedures for the aircrafts prior to take-off!
Prepare all the aircrafts in the given time, so that they take off on time. In addition you must complete all the tasks required for each individual aircraft. The tasks that need to be completed will be shown to you in an infobox-bubble above each aircraft. The time bar around the bubble will show you how much time remains before the aircraft's scheduled take-off. Occasionally, unforeseen problems will arise that will require your immediate attention.

Make sure that you distribute your tasks efficiently across all the aircraft, as only a limited number of tankers, catering and baggage vehicles, boarding staff, de-icers and service personnel will be available to you.

Move the pointer onto the icon of each work station. To allocate a task, drag the symbol to the aircraft's infobox.


FUELING: Refuel the aircraft. – CATERING: Deliver the on-board catering. – BAGGAGE TRANSPORT: Bring the baggage to the aircraft. – BOARDING: Allow the passengers to board the aircraft.


SERVICE: Repair the aircraft. – DE-ICING: Remove all the ice from the aircraft.

Enjoy the game!
