TravelSky Airlines - Here to impress, not just to fly.

Discover one of Infinite Flight’s first and yet most advanced original virtual airlines!


We are proudly introducing TravelSky Airlines - Infinite Flight’s leading original classic virtual airline.
TravelSky has a long history to be proud of. Originally founded back in fall of 2014, the airline was one of the first professionally managed virtual airlines for Infinite Flight in the business. The airline has always aimed to set evermore higher standards which still is noticeable today. Core concepts, which are now largely considered to be obvious, such as fix route lists and booking systems, have gained popularity by the inventiveness and influence of TravelSky Airlines.
Despite its age, TravelSky Airlines has not lost any of its original brilliance and has always evolved with the developments in the virtual airline community. So here we are today - presenting a better TravelSky than ever before, with a great many of marvelous ideas still in our mind.


Our Vision

Making TravelSky a well-known and respected flagship in the virtual airline industry is the leading motive for all of our intentions. With the pioneering spirit still firmly anchored in our minds, we are striving to offer something new every time. The times where just being another virtual airline still brings you large popularity are over. With more and more, increasingly advanced virtual airlines emerging in the community, it is crucial to offer the extra bit that nobody else may offer. Finding this extra bit and always implementing it as well as possible is what we are here for.
We want our pilots to enjoy a virtual airline experience that is in fact different from the normal Infinite Flight adventure. Whether it is group flights, our career plans, the community within the airline, all of our different routes, whatever it is that gives us this certain something, it is what we want our pilots to be offered here at TravelSky.

An airline with happy pilots that enjoy their membership does not need large amounts of them. Size really doesn’t matter. It is what lies beyond a fancy community thread that really determines whether or not a virtual airline is a good one.

Besides our pilots flying all across the globe, there is a small group of dedicated TravelSky enthusiasts that ensure smooth operations within the airline with their work.

Fleet

It is obvious that a vibrant fleet is absolutely essential for any airline. Thus, many factors have influenced our choice of aircraft to use for our commercial services.
After evaluting aircraft by judging whether they fit our needs or are economic, modern and innovative solutions, considering all of our options in the game, and attempting to resemble a realistic real-world airline, this is the fleet we have decided on.

Aircraft of all sizes, ranges, capacities and manifacturers guarantee diversity and fun while flying!

Medium Range:

  • Airbus A319-100
  • Airbus A320-200
  • Airbus A321-200
  • Boeing 737-700
  • Boeing 737-800

Long Range:

  • Airbus A330-300
  • Airbus A340-600
  • Boeing 747-8i
  • Boeing 777-200ER

And we do not lie about that nor exaggerate. With a route network of over 3000 individual routes connecting more than 200 destinations in 52 countries all over the globe, TravelSky is able to offer one of, if not the most diverse, extensive and yet well thought through flight connections.

We have focused our operations on mostly holiday travel in the contiguous United States, Europe, the Caribbean as well as numerous other, well and less well-known intercontinental destinations.
TravelSky - operating under the callsign TSK is serving all routes originating in the US, TravelSky Europe, our european and not necessarily smaller subsidary connects people on all routes originating in Europe, using the callsign TSE.

Our general route structure is orientated by the point-to-point model of commercial aviation.

These Focus City airports are

  • Portland International, Oregon (KPDX)

  • Houston - George W. Bush Intercontinental, Texas (KIAH)
  • St.Louis - Lambert International, Missouri (KSTL)

Charter Program

Your paying customers are waiting, but your entire fleet is out and about? You can’t meet the demand for one of your flights and your planes’ capacity is too small? Don’t worry, we’re on our way - easily charter TravelSky planes and crew for your flights!


One of TravelSky’s unique features is our aircraft and crew charter program.
Originally introduced in 2016, retired and now back in business, this concept is the first of its kind among all Infinite Flight virtual airlines.

So how does it work?
With our charter program, any virtual airline owner or staff member can rent our aircraft and pilots for one of their flights. Simply head over to www.travelskyairlines.weebly.com/charter and book directly via the website.
Your flight will then be reviewed and we will look for a pilot to do the flight.
Based on the qualifications/licenses of each of our pilots and your route specifications (required range, capacity etc.) we will provide an aircraft from our diverse fleet.
If no pilot can be found to do the flight at the time you requested, your flight booking might be relocated or cancelled.

This means that we can by no means guarantee that your flight will be taken over by us, but we will not save any efforts to ensure it will and find economic and efficient solutions for any kind of flight tasks.


Are you interested?
Before booking, please check the respective page on our website here and read the provided information thoroughly before sending a request!
We look forward to working with you and helping you!

Check out our first article and many more in the future for absolutely free by hitting the banner above!

Here’s a little taste of our first article, discussing the topic of the future of Infinite Flight and TravelSky after the global update. It’s definitely worth checking out!


“It is justified to say that for many this small mobile app has become somewhat like a settled part of their daily free time schedule, more than a hobby, a passion. A passion that might have worsened a great many of school grades, but time was perfectly spent for.”

[…]

“We have taken off from London Heathrow countless times, we have flown into Aspen-Pitkins way too often, we have blown away way too many virtual tourists from a virtual Maho Beach with a virtual jet blast.”

[…]

"Global Flight is not just an update, it’s a vastness of closed doors we can now open, we can discover what’s beyond them, it’s a spirit.
A new era for Infinite Flight has begun, new journeys begin, and you decide where they will go."


Our next article is already in the works, another time about Infinite Flight, but focusing on another topic. You can certainly look forward to it!
Also, let us know your feedback, possible topics we should discuss in a future article or any other of your thoughts in the blog comments. We can’t wait to hear your opinions!

love to see the effort put into VAs like this, awesome job here guys!

With a heavy heart, we are afraid to announce the closure of TravelSky Airlines, effective immediately.

After three adventurous years of ups and downs, successes and setbacks, we have come to the conclusion that its best shutting down the airline here and now. None of us in the rehearsed TravelSky team is able to keep up with the high demands in terms of time and effort investment due to school, flying education and many other factors.
The unexpectedly - let’s face the facts - horrible interest in the airline even after a complete restructurization and new impulses with the global update has also lead us to question whether the upholding of the airline and our time and effort is still worth attempting.
In the end, we realized that the answer to this question might just be: No. It’s not.

It comes with great regret and gratefulness towards our few loyal and active pilots that we have decided to quit with TravelSky despite their interest and time over the course of the last years.

Ultimately, I would like to thank my fantastic team behind TravelSky for always supporting the project and bringing things forward, even if forced to put back personal interests at some points. Thank you for your accompaniment and support without which the airline would have never come to this point and would have never been as good as it is now. Thanks guys.

So now, there’s nothing left to say, but a final thank you, goodbye and ever happy flying.
