Queen Alia International Airport (OJAI | AMM) is Jordan’s main and largest international airport, and is located in Zizya, 30 km south of the Capital City, Amman. It is named after Queen Alia, who perished in a helicopter crash in 1977. Home to Jordan’s official flag carrier, Royal Jordanian, it also serves as Arabian Airlines’ main operations hub. Arabian operates 46 daily flights throughout its network from Queen Alia International Airport to destinations throughout the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa.


Arabian Airlines takes pride in its fleet. Each of the sixteen aircraft are meticulously repainted and rendered for Prepar3D version 4 utilizing the exceptional FSLabs A32X addon series. At this phase of its virtual operations, Arabian Airlines utilizes 6 A319s, 5 A320s, and 5 A321s for its operations. Each aircraft carries a unique name, representing various aspects of Jordan and the Airline.

The airline’s livery is original and meaningful. The tail emblem has a dual meaning: it is an artistic representation of the letter “ain,” the first letter in Arabian’s Arabic branding, and a depiction of the talons of a falcon, a highly prized and respected avian in the Arab world. The red coloring, a specially chosen shade, represents the desert landscape over which the main emblem is placed. Lastly, the Arabian Black, another specially chosen shade, represents the roots of the company, similar to the dark henna used during the tribal period of the Arabian Peninsula. Each and every element of Arabian’s branding is meant to proudly represent the wonderous part of the world that it calls home, and the traditions, values, and aspirations of the Jordanian people.


Arabian Airlines is not your typical virtual airline. Pilots cannot simply apply and start flying the moment an application is accepted. Arabian strives to provide and educational experience, guiding its applicants through an examination and type rating process meant to teach them about the particulars of operating in the Middle East, and introducing them to the company’s extensive operational requirements. Pilots must first pass an entrance examination, and then take and pass an indoctrination and type rating examination to be cleared for flight. Arabian Airlines provides its applicants with all of the materials and resources that they need to succeed. Additional certifications, such as a CAT II/III endorsement, are offered through the examination system. Lastly, the Airline’s application system is only open during select periods of the year, ensuring that only the most serious and dedicated virtual pilots are recruited for this growing virtual airline.



Arabian Airlines virtual pilots must meet the following minimum pilot requirements as of March 4, 2020:

  • Must own a legitimate copy of Lockheed Martin Prepar3D V4.X;
