Dawn of the Millennium scenario is now open!

The Dawn of the Millennium game world is now open!

» Join here!


This is a mid-length game world (duration 8 months), and part of our series to bring more variety and more frequent launches of new scenarios at AirwaySim.

Dawn of the Millennium starts in mid-1970s and takes you through the financial turbulence of 1970s and early 1980s, then towards the growth period of 1990s, and finally reaching the difficulties faced by airlines after 9/11. Overall a very interesting period to manage your airline!

The basic settings are:
  • Time span: 1975 - 2007, at 30 minutes per game day.
  • Normal difficulty level / Medium length scenario.
  • All aircraft models included.
  • The overall play duration of this game is about 8 months.

Game play related settings specific for this scenario:
  • Fuel prices are customized and may, or may not, follow the real historical developments.

  • All airports globally and all aircraft models included. The "non-realistic" prototype aircraft are also available.

  • Additional base airports follow the standard rules, max 10 bases per airline, and the amount of planes based outside HQ will grow over time.

  • Alliances are available to be formed from the first day.

  • Cargo with City Based Demand system included (the passenger demand model still follows the older more static model).

  • The aircraft production rates and amount of airport slots are higher compared to the standard "realworld" setting.

  • The airport slot numbers follow the new and updated slot system with slot releases happening only when the airport expands (apart from the first game year). Details can be found from the changelog. Slot setting factor is at x2.0 compared to standard AWS slot model.

If it has been a while since you started at early stages in a major AirwaySim games, here are a few reminders and tips:
  • The game clock is paused for the first day and will start moving after 24 hrs. The used aircraft market will refresh several times during the first static 24 hour day (but you can only make two orders for aircraft during the first day).

  • There are plenty of used aircraft available to begin with, but the used aircraft market will soon become limited and the popular aircraft types are sold/leased very quickly. Take care when picking the aircraft you plan to use.

  • New aircraft ordering will be available after the time starts to move (= from day 2 of the simulation), but it is of course always recommended to lease several used aircraft to begin with.

  • Be patient with the route sales figures since your Route Image grows slowly. Do not spend all your cash on planes at once, remember to leave a good reserve. It takes time to gain profits and there might be unexpected early problems..

  • Some popular airports will for sure become limited on airport slots soon. This is normal and you should use larger aircraft or other airports in that case. Please remember that slots are only available when the airport infrastructure expands.

  • Consider joining an alliance from early stages of the game, they are great resources for improving your game play (tips and help from fellow players).
Welcome and have fun!
