Having played before to the point I had a robust city, and starting over with knowledge of the game, I thought it would be useful to provide a guide for new players to help build up a robust city quickly. But the first thing to note is that the more hours you play in a day, the faster you will earn coins. It's that simple.
In this game, you will need lots of coins ... lots. These can be hard to come by just sending out flights. And unless you're a billionaire in real life, this is one item...

Reputation is an important part of Airport City. It determines how many neighbors you can visit and how many gifts you can send. But Reputation doesn't increase on its own. It can only be increased by visiting neighbors and "helping" them. This means tapping on buildings or entities in their city.
By tapping on buildings in your neighbors' cities, you can earn extra coins, passengers, fuel and items for collections. During events, there is often items around the city called entities. By...
Welcome to Airport City and to the most popular fan forum for the game. Hopefully, this post will help with some of the most common questions.
There are two guides areas on this forum. Some of the posts in these guides are linked on this page, but there is much more information available in the guides areas.

For space launches, there are 4 important buildings. 3 Launch Pads (green, blue, red) and Mission Control Centre (MCC).
If you go to the Space Flights section, it will show you what items you need to start the launch. Click each item if you want to know how to get it. More details can always be found on the wiki page (https://www.airportcitygame.com/wiki/space_flights/).
To start your Space Launch programme, you can either click Fly! from the above picture. Or go directly to your Launch...
Friends (neighbors) are a very important part of Airport City. Without them, you won't be able to complete tasks or some events. And you will have a hard time gathering launch items without regular visits to your neighbors' cities.
But not all neighbors are the same. You will need to have several different kinds of friends to progress through the game.
Look for neighbors that you can communicate with. This forum and chat are a great way to do that. Some people don't have any friends that...
If you're wondering how to do the Excavation Flights, Adventure Flights, or how to obtain Adventure Buildings, you've come to the right thread. Here, I will explain how to do those flights.
As an example, I'll show you how to do the lowest level Excavations flight available which is Excavations: Mesoamerica.
First of all, you need the Airship Dock building. It looks like this:
Sky merchant Duke Croocker will come to your airport every Monday and Thursday. When he comes, his Airship Store...
When you start the game, you have a fuel capacity of 30 units.
As you send out flights, the amount of fuel you have goes down and it replenishes at a rate of 1 fuel unit per minute.
For each level you go up, you get another unit or two of fuel added to your capacity - your first level up will increase your maximum capacity from 30 to 31 units of fuel.
A full table of fuel capacity at each level is available in the wiki https://www.airportcitygame.com/wiki/experience_fuel_level/...
Airport City allows players to send gifts to each other but to do this, you will need to have friends. You can add random players using the game's Add Neighbor feature but you are best to look for neighbors who are forum members so you can communicate with them.
For the record, the two neighbors that always show at the top of your list (Madlen Airborn and Small Village) aren't real neighbors. They are the game's way of sending you free gifts. You can't return them. Although you can visit...
I've been asked many times which bonus to use to improve the chances of a drop. Here's my opinion on the matter:
"This bonus increases the chance of quest item drop (both common and collectible) by 150% for 6 hours."
Quests are the icons that occasionally appear on the left side of the screen. Sometimes they are main quests, like the recent "The Great Game" and "Santa's Bad Day" quests. At times, there are subquests that appear that walk you step by step through the main quest...

Hi Newbies, The Riding the Comet event is run sometimes twice a year and is generally a pretty easy event to complete IF you are prepared.
So what do you need to do to prepare?
Build a Mission Control Center (5000 coins). It requires building items to complete so you want to get started on it quickly. You can get through videos for all items in a day, or plan to exchange gifts with neighbors. The construction time is only 2 hours...
New to Airport City ? No problem ! Let's start with Level 1 and end this post with Level 5.
Level 0 : (When you are downloading the game)
Well as I am in Level 26 now, I'm not really sure whether if I am correct. Just remind or comment me. Thanks !
Things you will get when you download :
+Max Population Buildings
Tree X2 (or NONE ?)
Town Hall LV 1
Powerful Wind Turbine X2
You've probably heard that it's tedious to fly helicopters and it's not very profitable. Yes it is tedious, but it can be very profitable. I wouldn't recommend this for very newer players. The infrastructure requirement to fly helicopters is vast. If you are looking for ways as a very new player to gather coins, check out this post.
Thanks @Marve for the additional detail. At some point, I will put the full table of destinations, item combinations and cost/profitability on the forum
Not all buildings are created equal!!
Last nightI whiled away a sleepless hour or so trying to evaluate which properties deliver the optimum number of passengers. Of course optimum will be different for each of us as we play the game in different ways and our choices may be limited by Land or Electricity supply. I am a regular player - I play pretty much every hour and dont sleep well so quite a lot in the night as well. Also I keep the game open in a second screen all the time I am at...
Especially during events, there are lots of posts about horrible drop rates from flights and questions about how to improve drop rates. The single answer to the question is bonuses. Bonuses that increase drop rate can be purchased through events and in the store with greenies but there are also free ways to obtain bonuses.
This will touch only the FREE ways of obtaining bonuses. Not all of them are easy and some take a lot of time.
Each of these bonuses must be activated BEFORE the flights...
This comes up a lot on this forum. People suspect others of cheating because they flew a lot of passengers very quickly, because they got a lot of event currency very quickly, because they have lots of unfilled space, because they flew lots of passengers without lots of passenger buildings, because they seem to have fewer resources than you but are doing better.
If you are relatively new to the game, some things that are quite common for seasoned players at a higher level may seem...
I was looking for an overview of which buildings give the best bonuses (for instance for a 'magic square' or whatever you want to call it). Couldn't find a comprehensive overview, so I made one myself. Feel free to add :) .

There have been some great guides written about using maps including

Did you know that
You don't have to place first in any launch to get a reward? You could place 100th in a launch and still get a reward in the lander.
There is no point fighting over 2nd and 3rd place? Or 4th/5th or 6th/7th for that matter? They get identical rewards.
Even if you put in zero fuel, you still get a reward
If two people put in the same amount of fuel, the person that joined first gets the higher position
Here is a handy table
I apologize in advance - this requires math. There are lots of ways to play this game. If you're the type to track things with spreadsheets and plan for everything, this strategy may be for you.
As you achieve new levels, you get rewarded with greenies, coins, passengers and some other stuff. More importantly, your fuel meter is restored - even if it was completely empty.
But do you want to level up? Well of course you do because it unlocks new challenges. But this is more about when you...
A lot of new players don't spend much effort landing guest planes. But there are immense benefits from doing this. Landing guest planes
1) yields experience points and coins (see table below)
2) provides you with additional fuel (1 unit) or passengers (see table)
2) builds up your inventory of repair items
4) drops items to complete collections that yield more coins, experience, flight items and buildings
All levels of plane will drop items for the following collections
It has been ten months since I start playing this game now. Time surely gone really fast, no? While I am on alliance transition phase now, I finally have the time to write this m-easy (read: messy) guide to obtains QL for beginners. Hopefully this can help some new players interested to obtains some QLs, to do multiple space launches in a day on regular basis.
First of all, just remember this theory in your mind. The Theory of Everything. One of the collection in this game (not the drama on...
Since many people are upset about losing the ability to send Fuel(20) from their accounts, here's a guide on how to set up an additional account for exchanging fuel alone. Here are the highlights:
Minimum time and effort to play the fuel account (about 30 seconds a day)
Get up to 20× Fuel(20) on top on your regular gifts
Some people have already ran such rings in the past or are running them currently: @RavenENTP , @gbswales - I am building up on great work they've done, thanks guys...
There are multiple ways to speed up flights. This post talks specifically about using the fuel catalyst.
If you plan on speed up flights with fuel, don't bother using the fuel catalyst. The fuel cost to speed up flights is the same whether there is 99% of the flight left or 45 seconds left.
When you open your flight radar, you can tell how many opportunities you have to speed up the flight by the number of chevrons on the progress bar. This flight has two chevrons so two opportunities to...

This is a summary of my studies so far. I only have L2 Helicopters, so its stopped at that. I will update this as we go along, but probably not again until 100 flights for each. The repetition in items seems steady at about 8 different combinations of materials for each flight, so while there may be some narrowing, after 100 it will likely be steady.
Average Cost assumes only the use of H Fuel at 5 units for 10 coins (2 min). Sparrows remain profitable (though in the 10s of coins per hour)...
It would be useful if new users got some guidance on gifting. Just something I wish I would have known when I was at lower levels.
Now that I'm at a higher level, I feel bad about not returning all the landing lamps, radio transmitters (I have 177), fuel supplies and air conditioners (73) that I get but I'm beyond the need for those things and have too many already. I don't want to return them and encourage people to continue sending them.
So, here it is.
We're all limited to sending...
