ikeda-Caelus Airline Group (ICAG) is a jointly owned airline holding company with it's headquarters at Frontier Plaza in Central City. It was formed in July 2016 through the merger of ikeda, Notalis, and Voar. The company, a joint venture between Frontier Group and GeorgiaHoldings, operates several airline ventures: Caelus Airlines, it's flagship airline operating flights on the new world as well as limited service to the old world; ikeda, which operates service across the old world and limited service to the new world; and CaelusLink, a helicopter company offering service to Senator cities and other areas unsuitable for airline service but accessible by helicopter. Through this multi-pronged strategy of branding and operations, ICAG seeks to hold it's place as one of the largest airlines on the MRT server.

Caelus Airlines was founded as Inverted Airlines on March 14, 2012 on a derpy creative server. The airline first made its presence on the MRT when the MRT International Airport went under construction in August 2012. Reserving a few gates, IVA had aircraft installed in the airport shortly after the concourses were finished. During the unification of Frontier Corporation and LSN Holdings in November 2013, Inverted Airlines was merged with its off-server counterpart, WorldJet Airways, and the resulting airline used WorldJet's branding, amenities, and aircraft designs.
Up until this point, none of these flights operated real flights within the MRT outside of roleplays. However, in 2014, amidst the rise of several new airlines, WorldJet rebranded as Caelus. At this point, Caelus operated few flights and mainly let gates sit unused in MRT International Airport and elsewhere. The airline expanded under the ownership of the Under_Score Corporation in late 2014, with access to Ender Wing Airlines gates in MRT International Airport and elsewhere; however, changes were incremental and insufficient for the time, with the airline only gaining a few flights.
In 2015, Caelus merged with Air Peach to form Notalis, a luxury airline attempting to combine the best of both companies. The name, pronounced "no-tuh-lis" but commonly mispronounced as "no-tah-lis", was an amalgamation of Greek words meaning "southern" and "premium", which were the primary "pillars" off which the Notalis brand was based. Notalis, at the request of KittyCat11231, initiated a merger with IntraAir in the summer of 2016. A multitude of efforts to rebuild, rehabilitate, and rebrand the airline, cleaning up after a year of mismanagement from Notalis' preoccupied management, were set into motion. Meanwhile, citing an imminent monopolization of the MRT's airline industry, a number of new airlines, most notably BART Airlines, arose. However, this merger ultimately failed when IntraAir withdrew. Alas, many of the reasons cited by IntraAir for cancelling the merger were true: Caelus and Air Peach had not been fully integrated; the Notalis network was messy and uncoordinated; and was being torn apart by the management of several different people. The cancelled merger, among other drama, plunged Notalis into a state of bad public relations and a bad public image. This was enough of a mess that Soleurs, our original founder, left to create his own airline.
Seeking to ride on the wave of momentum created by the attempted merger with IntraAir, reformation efforts continued. A successful but conditional bid to get Soleurs back onboard forced the admittedly unethical demotion of kiwirainbow to a functionally equivalent but ceremonially inferior position, leading him to resign. Furthermore, Soleurs, citing bad PR associated with the Notalis brand, successfully pushed for a rebrand of the airline resulting in a two-pronged strategy: ikeda for the old world, and Caelus for the new world. The two airlines would be operated as two parts of a coherent whole under a holding company, ICAG. _Smae was hired as an executive and immediately got to work on an attractive new livery and interiors while JohnNotTech unveiled new advertisements and a new brand image including a tweaked version of the old Caelus logo. It was decided that the reformed route network would be based out of hubs at Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Saint Roux, Akane-Ishuzu International Airport, and MRT International Airport.
In September 2016, CaelusLink was created to compete with other up-and-coming helicopter companies, and began to offer service to several Senator cities on the new world, as well as some cities on the old world. A generic heliport, currently in operation in Washingcube, was built as a way to quickly roll out service to cities upon approval. The airline continues to operate today.
ICAG's need for a unique destination on the new world prompted the development and rapid deployment of flights to Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Saint Roux. However, because of an excess of destinations on the new world to which Caelus Airlines was under contract to operate flights, Charles de Gaulle International Airport was quickly filled with flights, with most Caelus planes at the airport taking on multiple routes to serve as many destinations as possible. However, when Konawa, a rural city in the northwest area of the new world owned by ICAG and Frontier Group CEO Soleurs, was promoted to Governor in October 2016, the development of Horizon National Airport commenced. The airport became a second hub on the new world for Caelus Airlines, and took on seven of the roughly twenty flights pending and/or operating from Saint Roux, notably easing the burden on that airport.
Main Article: Caelus Airlines
The flagship of ICAG's airline lineup, Caelus Airlines offers service primarily on the new world via its hubs at Horizon National Airport and Saint Roux - Charles de Gaulle International Airport. The name Caelus is from Roman mythology, in which Caelus is the god of the sky. Such majesty is reflected in Caelus' long history and continued active expansion as the keystone of the ICAG network.
Main Article: ikeda
Ikeda operates flights to old world destinations as a partner of Caelus. Offering the same comfort, elegance, and impeccable service that Caelus Airlines is proud to offer, Ikeda aircraft are marked by a red version of our distinctive livery. Furthermore, different elements of branding are different from Ikeda to fit with it's Japanese theme. An example of this is Ikeda's classes of service, which are all named after Japanese trees: First Class is Sakura Class, Business Class is Matsu Class, Main Cabin Select is Magnolia Class, and Main Cabin is Ume Class.
Main Article: CaelusLink
CaelusLink is a subsidiary of Caelus Airlines that offers helicopter service to towns across the MRT server. Helicopters typically offer service to areas without mainline airline service, such as Senator towns, and offer access fron these areas to mainline airports, where guests can connect to mainline flights on Caelus and other airlines. Limited space onboard restricts onboard amenities to WiFi and power outlets, and in-flight service consists only of a simple drink and snack service including a choice of snack boxes. CaelusLink flights are signed with a 400 series flight number. However, temporary flights on CaelusLink may have a 300 series flight number.
For Main Cabin and Main Cabin Select guests, we have a system of branded fare classes. Basic is available on select (usually not long-haul) flights, and is designed to be competitive with ultra-low cost airlines with a fully unbundled fare structure. Meanwhile, our Standard, Plus, and Flex tiers offer varying amenities in return for the higher fare.
|Upgrades to Main Cabin Select||N/A||
|Upgrades to Business Class or First Class||Pay full fare difference at check-in or gate||Pay fare difference ×.75 at check-in or gate||Pay fare difference ×.5 at check-in or gate||Pay fare difference ×.25 at check-in or gate|
|Checked Bags||$40 fee||
|Frequent Flyer Points||×.75||×1||×1.5||×2|
For premium cabins, fare tiers all include Caelus Loft access and Caelus Select, where possible, and frequent flyer points are awarded in a fashion similar to that of our branded Main Cabin tiers.
Damaged and Lost Baggage
Making sure your baggage is handled properly is important to us. If your baggage gets delayed or lost, we will work to return it to you as soon as possible. If it is damaged in transit, we will help you repair it under many circumstances. Those who have been affected by damage or loss to their checked baggage in most cases will be subject to compensation in the form of cash, frequent flyer points, or vouchers.
For unaccompanied minors and the disabled, an optional escort service is available to better assist you for a one-way fee that includes the full trip booked. This fee is waived for disabled customers, and is mandatory for children under the age of 13. If connecting to or from a different airline, it may be necessary that you purchase escort service from that airline as well; however, ICAG will work with partner airlines to ensure that this isn't necessary if at all possible.
If you opt for this service, a representative will greet you upon arrival to the airport, and will escort you through to the end of your booked trip. On request, the representative can meet you at the car, bus, or train when it drops you off, and see you through to grand transportation at your destination.
For guests affected by a delay longer than two hours, ICAG will offer a meal voucher that can be used to buy food anywhere within the airport. Upon request, this meal voucher can be exchanged for cash, a check, or be credited back to the payment card used to purchase your flight ticket. If it is necessary to stay overnight, ICAG will provide accommodations at a nearby hotel and will offer overnight kits containing toiletries and pajamas. In accordance with the law, additional compensation in the form of cash, frequent flyer points, or vouchers may be available depending on the length of the delay.
Overbooking a flight means that airlines will accept a few additional reservations for seats on a flight beyond the aircraft's seating capacity. Airlines overbook to try to fill seats left empty by passengers who don't show up for their flight or don't cancel their reservations prior to the flight's departure. Overbooking also creates booking opportunities for customers who need to be on a light that is showing full but likely to depart with available seats. In fact, the majority of overbooked flights depart with empty seats because the formula we use to determine our booking levels is carefully applied and very conservative.
If a flight is overbooked and scheduled to be full, airline representatives will first call for any guests who will voluntarily take a later flight. Those who volunteer will be subject to compensation for the inconvenience. If there aren't enough volunteers, those who have yet to check-in may be involuntarily denied boarding (IDB), or "bumped". Those who have already been given a boarding pass will not be involuntarily denied boarding regardless of fare class, class of service, frequent flyer status, or any other reason.
Regardless of whether a later flight is taken voluntarily or involuntarily, ICAG will refund the cost of the ticket and offer additional compensation in the form of cash, frequent flyer points, or vouchers.
Pets can fly. But whether your pet gets carried on or shipped as (very special) cargo, we’ve put requirements and restrictions in place to make sure your furry friend is comfortable and safe. Get familiar with these guidelines to ensure your jet-set pet is happy and healthy from takeoff to landing.
Dogs, cats and household birds can travel with you in the cabin provided that they meet the following requirements:
- Your pet must be small enough to fit comfortably in a kennel without touching or protruding from the sides of the kennel and with the ability to move around.
- The kennel must fit under the seat directly in front of you.
- Maximum carry-on kennel dimensions are determined by your flight. You must contact ICAG Reservations to determine the appropriate kennel size.
- Your pet must remain inside the kennel (with door secured) while in a ICAG boarding area (during boarding and deplaning), a ICAG or SkyTransit Alliance partner airport lounge, and while onboard the aircraft.
- Your pet must be at least 10 weeks old. Some jurisdictions may require a higher age.
- Your pet counts as one piece of carry-on baggage.
- One pet is permitted per kennel with the following exceptions:
- One female cat/dog may travel with her un-weaned litter if the litter is a minimum of 10 weeks old to 6 months of age.
- There is no limit on the number of animals in the litter.
A health certificate is required when shipping your pet as cargo or checked as baggage. Some destination states may require a health certificate for your pet. If a health certificate is required, it must be issued by a licensed veterinarian within 10 days of transport and must include:
- shipper's name and address
- tag numbers or tattoos assigned to the animal
- age of the animal being shipped: USDA regulations require animals be at least 10 weeks old and fully weaned before traveling domestically, at least 16 weeks old before traveling to the U.S. from other countries and at least 15 weeks old for European travel
- statement that the animal is in good health (If the shipper knows that the pet is pregnant, it must be noted on the health certificate)
- list of administered inoculations, when applicable
- signature of the veterinarian
- date of the certificate
