The concept of World Tour was first introduced to the VA/VO Community by AFKLM. John370, our current CEO, came up with the idea and the first edition was an immediate success which caused AFKLM to host a total of six separate world tours over the years. Today, the World Tour is our most anticipated event series of the year with thousands of flight hours logged every time. Make sure to follow us here on the IFC and on our our Instagram @afklmvirtual so you don’t miss out on recent developments.

World Tour 7 was brought to you by the World Tour Committee — @hass.ik @John370 @sanketpandia @KJKLM281 @Eagle2703 @Woutopia

The City of Chongqing

We are now 2 days away from the launch of World Tour 7! Today we are highlighting quite an underappreciated destination in IF. A mega-city nestled between high mountains, Chongqing is a one-of-a-kind place often described as ‘cyberpunk’ in appearance. It’s served by the 3D Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport (ZUCK) where you can fly the Hainan A333 to and China Southern B752 from!

The 7th World Tour is now just 20 days away from ending with a total of 14 pilots so far finished with the complete tour. There’s still many pilots working their way through the legs trying to complete the World Tour in-time.
