Phoenix Travel is one of the four airlines from Airline Tycoon. The airline is run by Igor Tuppolevsky and its color is red. The offices are located to the right of the Airport Manager and Route Administration, above the Duty-Free Shop and Bank. The logo is a phoenix in flames, on a red background.
In the English version of the game, Igor Tuppolevsky speaks with a Russian accent. This suggests he may be Russian, along with his name and office decorations, which include Matrushka dolls.
Tuppolevsky is probably one of the strongest AI players, as he doesn't go bankrupt easily. He is usually the last AI player to stand. He does seem to have a preference for fuel-inefficient planes, which may hurt him on the long term.
