1972 - Airport The Airline Game - Board Game


In Airport the goal is to create the most profitable airline. The players start with a fixed number of aircraft which they distribute among the routes on the board. They then take turns rolling dice and moving their counters around the board.

When a player lands on certain squares, they are paid for all aircraft they have on a particular route. The more aircraft there are on a single route the lower the payment received for each aircraft. For example; on the New York to Seattle route one aircraft will make $40,000. If there are 5 aircraft on the route then each aircraft will earn $15,000 (for a total of $75,000). All players receive payment for their aircraft on the route regardless of who landed on the square. Other squares on the board require the players to make certain payment (such as landing fees or ground service charges). The players are also required to perform maintenance on their aircraft. Airport cards can be drawn which give individual players bonuses (such as a mail cargo route) or penalties (such as a strike). The players also have the option of buying or leasing new aircraft or of selling old aircraft back to the bank. The first player to reach a net worth of one million dollars is the winner.

Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
