Latest update lets you convert passenger planes into freighters!
05/13/2022 - Airlinesim today released the long-awaited Freighter Conversion Tool, which will help you turn your used passenger planes into freighters in no time. The new tool came with a general patch that includes an exciting selection of new aircraft types alongside some airport updates.
HOW THE NEW TOOL WORKS
With the conversion tool, we provide you with a variety of new cargo models that you can convert your old passenger aircraft into. Just right, then, if you are planning to enter the cargo business with your airline!
If you don't have any used aircraft in your fleet yet, you can purchase a suitable model on the aircraft market via cash purchase. Please keep in mind that conversion is only possible if you own an aircraft outright - aircraft with an existing loan or lease cannot be converted.
Next, you can navigate to Fleet Management and click on either the "Flight Planning" or "Flights" icon next to the aircraft of your choice. On the following page, you'll find a new "Conversion" tab that will show you the available conversion options and prices for that particular model. Then, when you select "Convert Aircraft," your passenger aircraft will be converted directly into a freighter!
WHICH AIRCRAFT CAN I CONVERT?
For the release of the tool, we're adding seven new freighter aircraft to the game, including cargo versions of the A320, A321, 737-700 and -800, Dash 8-400, and CRJ 200, giving you a total of 23 aircraft variants to choose from in conversions.
DATA PATCH: AIRPORT UPDATES & NEW AIRCRAFT
In addition to the conversion tool, there are also some airport updates as part of a general data patch, as well as a number of new aircraft models - including aircraft such as the ATR 72-600F, LET 410 NG, as well as the new Cessna 408 SkyCourier freighter!
