Obtaining bonuses through regular (free) gameplay

Spyglass.png
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 are sent. They do not apply to flights that are already in the air when activated.


Dice (+50% increase) easily obtained, even through standard flights
  • Complete Mr. Wulf's Collection by flying to New York, Seoul, Paris, Delhi and Iceland (easy)
  • Finish in the top 50 alliances and obtain a Medium Bronze Alliance Chest (hard)
  • Obtain during some events under Basic Class access (easy)
Spy Glass (+150% increase)
  • Complete Five Islands Crests collection by flying to Cyprus Bali Island, Malta, Canary Islands and Iceland (easy)
  • Obtain during some events under Basic Class access (medium because it is one of the last reward levels)
Bowl of Riches (+150% increase)
  • May be available under basic class event access. (easy)
Sky Captain (+100% increase)
  • Purchase the Mystery Bonus from Duke Croker for 8 000 coins. This bonus MAY contain Sky Captain (easy)
  • Complete Tree of Life collection by assembling items from 5 other collections that drop from standard destinations (medium)
  • Complete Super Duper collection by assembling items from 5 other collections that drop from standard destinations (medium)
  • Complete 1000 flights to any alliance destination (easy but takes time)
  • Complete a series of collections from Adventure destinations (becomes more difficult as destinations require larger planes)
    • Complete 1 collection for all Mesoamerica, Ancient Rome, Stonehenge, Ancient Egypt and The Ancient World destinations to complete the Sands of Time collection
    • Complete 1 collection for all Southern Europe, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Oceania and Western Europe destinations to complete the Voices of the Past collection
    • Complete 1 collection for all New World, Mesopotamia, Ancient Africa, Ancient India and Ancient China destinations to complete the The Wheel of Time collection
  • Complete a series of collections from Alliance destinations (easy but takes time)
    • Complete 1 collection for all swift, owl, hawk, raven and eagle alliance destinations to complete A Midsummer Night's Dream collection
    • Complete 1 collection for all jumbo, giant, falcon, thunderbird and condor alliance destinations to complete Life is Beautiful collection
  • Finish from 2-4 in weekly alliance rankings to obtain a Silver Alliance Chest (extremely difficult))
Golden Dice (+100% increase) - Golden Dice is last because they are harder to obtain through regular game play
  • Random item in Bonus Chest available from mid-week promo code (easy)
  • Finish from 5-10 in weekly alliance rankings and obtain a Large Bronze Alliance Chest (very difficult)

In addition to the ways mentioned above,
  • Three collections (Cards on the Table, More Precious than Gold and Liquid Assets) have Mystery Bonus as a reward which may contain a Sky Captain. There are several ways to get this collection
    • Having adventure buildings (e.g. Aztec Pyramid) which drop items for standard collections (easy for lower level flights)
    • Visit your own Private School, Courthouse, and Business Center (easy but expensive and drops are "very seldom")
    • Visit Bank, Mint and Casino in neighbour cities. They are obsolete buildings that are no longer available but many long-time players have them.
  • 10 Alliance Map Collections have Mystery Super Bonus as a reward. These are long term game play collections. You can find information here https://www.airportcitygame.com/wiki/alliance_map_collections/ (very time consuming and requires many weeks in top 100 alliances)

Pro Tip: In addition to dropping items for the Cards on the Table, More Precious than Gold and Liquid Assets collections, the adventure buildings (e.g. Aztec Pyramid, Colosseum, etc) drop items for all regular collections including:
  • Mr. Wulf's Collection - dice
  • Five Islands Crests - Spy Glass
  • The ten collections whose rewards make up the Tree of Life and Super Duper collections - Sky Captain
  • Items for other collections that produce useful bonuses
    • Stewardess' Belongings - Business Class
    • Pilot's Belongings - Business Class
    • Paradise Island - Comfort Class
    • Trade Island - Extra Fuel Can
    • Headwear - Lucky Cap
    • Sports Competition - Inconvertible Coin
    • Figures and Figurines - Vintage Weathervane
    • Toys from All Over the World - Secret Faucet
Having lots of these adventure buildings in your city helps you build up a store of bonuses.

The Cards On The Table, More Precious Than Gold, and the Liquid Assets collections are not from adventure buildings like the Aztec Pyramid. They are from the Private School, Courthouse, and Business Center respectively, all which can be purchased in the store.
Otherwise, solid guide...nice work.

I don't have any of those buildings (private school, courthouse, business center) and have completed all three of those collections. Aztec Pyramid and other adventure buildings drop items from those collection chests.

But I will add those buildings to the methods for obtaining the collections.

Yes you're correct, and I didn't know you were referring to them that way. I thought you were looking for comparable ways to the casino, bank, and mint. Since those buildings are discontinued, they used the aforementioned buildings to gather the collection instead...guess as a way of "leveling the playing field" between older and newer players.
By the way, those buildings are great to add once you no longer care to have a lot of coin collecting buildings and you have enough saved up. It's a gift that keeps on giving

Nice guide Chloe.
Have to agree with Navi and Chris though. Many players make use of those 3 buildings (private school, business centre and courthouse) in their own cities, and many players both old and new visit CBMs daily/regularly for those bonus chests.

Regarding the twice daily gift- I notice that the clock has an 8 hour turnaround. I’ve often tapped on the bank when it shows an outstanding action only to find the cupboard bare and wondered why. Does that happen because I’ve accepted gifts twice that day already?
Wondered the same myself. Seems to be a misalignment between the notification and the actual gift frequency
