The Connected Virtual Airline

At ZIP VIRTUAL, we aim to make flying for a virtual airline a fun and easy experience. If you have never flown for a virtual airline before, or you're a veteran with thousands of hours, we'd love to welcome you on board!

We are a low pressure, friendly airline to fly for with little minimum hour requirements, realistic & dynamic schedules, wet lease operations and ad-hoc charters! We are sure you'll be able to fly what you want, when you want, where you want.

With scheduled airline operations based at Edinburgh, Luton & Manchester, you can fly all over Europe and the rest of the world with our fleet of aircraft.

Your flights will be electronically dispatched and logged through our website and ACARS which rates your flight performance, tracks your landing rate and more.

Have a look around our website for more information on ZIP VIRTUAL, you'll find everything from our interactive route map, to details of our fleet and operations.

Operating three hubs means you have the choice and flexibility to fly a huge, diverse selection of routes. Our scheduled services in the UK, Europe and our charter and wet lease operations mean you'll always be able to find the perfect flight for you.

For full immersion, we also have custom safety demonstrations, airport reference guides, line operation manuals, dedicated equipment checklists, online AI model matching and an automated ACARS software.

      It's a pleasure to have you on board with us Scott, but please can we lessen the language. Whilst we realise it's normal for you, the word Teesside may offend others.

    I am quit new in this warm and friendley community. And I am impressed. If you have questions you get quick answers, and there is plenty of routs and different planes to fly, and it is evolving al the time with new routs. I feel like my simulation expreience i developed much after i joined ZIP and I fly more serious with checklists and so on. I can recomend ZIP with my whole heart. :)
