:To research a route click on [[File:Open-new-route.png]] under the '''Routes''' part of the main navigation menu. This will take you to the '''Quick Route Lookup''' page. Here you will be able to select two airports in the proper fields. Ideally, the Departure field should be an airport you fly out of frequently (a hub) as this will help with filtering and viewing routes later on. Once you know which airports you want to fly to click '''Research Route'''.

==Route Management==

:'''Route Managment''' is arguably the most important page in the game, and you will spend a great deal of time on it. There are a total of five tabs which allow you to adjust and research all aspects of that specific route.

===Market Research===

:'''Market Research''' is the first part of '''Route Management'''.  It allows you to see demand, competition (or lack there of), market share, current prices, and other important information about the airports in question and the route it self.

:From the examples you can see a route where your airline does not have any flights and a route where your airline does have flights. The lower middle box changes depending on if you do or do not have any flights on that route. If you do not have any flights you will be given the option to '''Add Flights''' to that route (baring any political restrictions). In the event that you do have flights on that route, you will be able to modify flight prices as well as '''IFS''' type.

 +
:At the bottom you will be able to see your '''Detailed Reputation''' on the route (if you have flights). This information can help you determine how you may improve your flights. The more green the boxes are, the higher your route reputation. Improved route reputation changes the way PAX view your flights over your competition.
