Employee Benefits & Travel Costs

Two new cost categories have been implemented and added to your income statement:

  • Employee Benefits
  • Employee Travel and Lodging

These new costs are calculated and deducted each Friday along with payroll and the rest of the weekly costs. They are calculated based on a percentage of the employee’s salary, as described below:


  • 40% of the salary for ramp agents
  • 50% of the salary for all other employees

Travel and Lodging

  • 15% of the salary for executives
  • 10% of the salary for corporate
  • 50% of the salary for flight crew and cabin crew

As an effort to curb exponential growth we are determining what costs exist in the real world that are not yet reflected in the game, and employee benefits and lodging costs are a significant human resources cost, especially in the airline industry. Flight and cabin crew will stay in hotels overnight depending on their schedules, and executives and corporate employees will travel to attend events, meet with suppliers or customers, and so on.

These new costs go into effect next Friday, October 18th.


I like it.

It’s well known that the game really doesn’t support different airline types. Talk about how to code it has been an ongoing discussion but there are more pressing matters. Also, there is no need to dig up a thread two years old. Make a new post. :slight_smile:

No it’s better to create a new one because that way we don’t have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see your replies. The extra load on the server is minuscule because it’s just text
