T1%20Introducing

Based on the real world fleet, routes and partners of Aer Lingus

We are working hard to offer a professional VA experience for pilots and controllers of all grades. Offering a great choice of routes from short regionals to ultra long hauls. Our simple yet enjoyable fleet offer crews some great challenges, and is further expanded by utilising aircraft from our Operator and Codeshare partners.
Events, group flights, a bespoke online crew centre (coming in 2020), and a friendly community are all part of how we plan to make the already amazing experience that is Infinite Flight, even more enjoyable!

Our Fleet

We are keen to keep the VA as close is possible to the structure to the real world airline we are based on. Although Infinite Flight unfortunately doesn’t currently offer all the aircraft types in use by Aer Lingus (or even liveries on some that it does have), we have built our fleet from what is currently available. Our crews also enjoy many opportunities to fly additional aircraft through our Codeshare partner routes!

Our Routes

Our route database comprises every real world flight (not just each route, but each flight number!) operated by Aer Lingus that’s possible to recreate in Infinite Flight! In addition we have partnered with a number of VAs who are real world Codeshare partners, offering even more choice as part of our ‘Routes of the Week’ feature - each carrying an hours multiplier bonus!

Our Partners

We enjoy working closely with the other IFVARB Approved VAs that form part of our codeshare and operator partner programs, based on real world Aer Lingus information. We currently offer occassional codeshare routes from the following partners, changing weekly to keep the available routes different and interesting!

Regular Events & Group Flights

We like to keep our crew happy and busy around the world, which is why our events team arrange for weekly VA group flights and flash flights. These feature either our own Aer Lingus VA routes, codeshare partner routes, historic flights or sometimes tribute flights, such as our recent ‘Thomas Cook Tribute’.

WildRover

‘Wild Rover’ The EIVA World Tour!

In addition to the team’s great efforts, we also recently started our World Tour event ‘Wild Rover’ where we are making our way around the IF globe showcasing our VA, aircraft, liveries and awesome crew on a 52 leg route. This is taking us to places that we would not normally fly to or visit, and offering a great experience and some interesting routes and airports that add to our VA experience!
