Money is an important aspect of the game. You need money to buy and lease planes, buy improvements and buy slots. You can also use aid and investments to help out fellow airlines.
You have a bank account which you can access on the left menu. The account is a savings account of sorts, meaning you can deposit money at any time but you can only withdraw money once a week on Mondays, and only one withdraw on Monday. At 00:00 on every Monday you will receive interest for the amount of money you have in the bank at that time.
The interest calculation:
Amount in the account / 1,000,000
Maximum interest you can get is 5%
If you have problems adding or removing money from the bank try typing in $1 less than what you have.
Each airline is allowed to take out up to 3 loans at a time. The amount of money you can take out on each loan is determined by your rating.
Rating less than 40 - up to $2,000,000 each loan.
Rating between 40 and 80 - up to $4,000,000 each loan.
Rating between 80 and 120 - up to $6,000,000 each loan.
Rating between 120 and 160 - up to $8,000,000 each loan.
More than 160 rating - up to $10,000,000 each loan.
There is 0.5% daily interest on each loan you take. Note that the interest is taken out for the first day the instant you take the loan.
It is possible to send money to other airlines in the form of aid. You're airline must be 7 days old before you can send aid to someone.
To send aid to an airline, go to their airline profile. Next to the username you will see a globe with a $ sign. Click on that icon to send aid to them. You can only have 6 open aid slots at one time.
You can also invest in other airlines. You're airline must be 7 days old to invest in someone.
To invest in someone, go to their airline profile and you will see an icon that looks like a briefcase next to the username. Click this icon to invest in the airline.
You can invest anywhere from $1,000,000 to $20,000,000 in an airline. For each $1,000,000 you invest you receive 1% from the invested airline revenue. If you invest $10,000,000 in a company you will receive 10% from the invested airline revenue. You can only send and receive one ivestment at a time.
The airline that was invested in must pay off the investment to end it.
