Enter the fast paced and exciting world of Runway on your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. You start the game as the lead Air Traffic Controller at Honolulu International Airport. Help Gulfstream G650 aircraft land at your airport before they run out of fuel. Direct them to the gate to unload passengers and to the fuel depot to prepare for their outbound journey. Then it is time for more passengers and a timely takeoff.

The fun is just beginning. Move on to the rolling hills of San Francisco and say hello to the Boeing 737. The challenge continues in the mountains of Geneva, Switzerland with hungry passengers and a special food service. If you master that, be the first to fly the Airbus A380 in the bustling port of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. If you can handle that double decker, continue east to the tricky landings and urban life of Hong Kong and repair planes flying in from far away. Prove your mettle at busy and crowded JFK International in New York City and at London's Heathrow Airport in the United Kingdom. Then head down under to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport where FedEx planes load up parcels before they head out. Complete your adventure at Tokyo Narita where yummy sushi awaits your hungry passengers!

What's New

Perhaps you've been hoping for a bespoke Runway experience that goes edge to edge on your new, larger screen. Well, look no further. This update is all about the iPhone 5 and the iPad.

Serious bug with difficulty setting.

The Knights Postpositive

Fun game: I've been playing it on and off for years. 4.5 stars for overall game design.

In version 1.7, the difficulty setting seems to be not working: Trainee, Controller, and Officer all behave the same. On some levels, the planes come in so fast and continuously that they swamp a bottleneck like the fuel depot. What used to be Runway is now Runaway. One star for not testing the new version thoroughly before releasing it.

Fortunately, I still have 1.6 on my old iPhone, and it's a big difference: enjoyable and relaxing instead of aggravating and frustrating. The game is fun because you can design an orderly, efficient traffic flow in the airport, and it's disappointing that the new version ruins this completely.

Great Game


I purchased this game a while back and fell in love with it. It was my favorite game to play on my iPod. I had to get a new iPod and forgot to reinstall the game. I finally remembered sometime last week and I bought it again. It is a lot harder than I remember and I didn't know why until I read some of the reviews. Please put the game back to the way it was, it was a lot more fun before. But overall, I still have to give it 5 stars because its a great game, great concept and a wonderful way to kill time and challenge yourself.

Used to be fun


I give it 3 stars because of what I know this game is capable of. The last update ruined it. The difficulty levels don't work. No matter what you choose, the planes behave the same

You get the first 5 planes in a row and they ALL need gas. But you only have 1 gas station. It's aggravating. Please fix it!!
