Airline Tycoon Deluxe is the fourth incarnation in the Airline Tycoon series. It contains all the content from the previous games: Airline Tycoon, Airline Tycoon First Class and Airline Tycoon Evolution, but adds 20 new airports as well as features such as accepting cargo from remote estates.
It is a comic-styled simulation where you manage an airline, competing against other tycoons. Players have to buy new planes or repair old ones from a museum, keep the customers happy and the planes in good shape, and apply for bank loans. You also need to design and decorate the airport facilities, use security measures against opponents or sabotage other planes yourself, along with full maintenance of the stock market listing, route plans, order books and marketing. The game supports network games for up to four players and new planes can shared over the internet.
