On January 29, Airplaneguy9 submitted a letter to Epsilon President Vulpicula, giving a FlyEpsilon idea. While being rejected initially, it was decided to create different airlines for different regions, like how [[FlyBahia]] was the national airline of [[Bahia]]. Later that day, Airplaneguy9, i____7d and PeacemakerX5 (both the Lumevan leaders) decided to suspend the Lumeva Airline Group, and merge all airlines into one airline, named FlyLumeva. The new airline was based in [[Foresne]], with offices in Peaceopolis, [[Southoak]] and [[Stone Bay]]. Each leader owned 25% of the company, later reduced to 10% after {{u|ktkren777}} joined the company. The remaining percentages went to the Republic.

Over the period of a week, all assets of Lunaria were redone into the new FlyLumeva livery. While WU-SAC (now 7D-SAC) remained in the legacy Lunaria livery, with a change to the interior and the tail, other aircraft were changed to have the Flying Tree on their tails, a white fuselage with brown and green text above the windows (or in the case of the 777, large green text), and redesigned seats. Until February 1, flights were cancelled, and passengers were booked onto FlyBahia or for a later date. Flights relaunched on February 1, with the new Oak Class and Spruce Class check-in opening the next day. The website went back up on February 3, and online booking was available from February 4, after passengers were left stranded at Kanto, due to no check-in.

The problem was, the only medium gates were at [[Thunderbird International Airport|Thunderbird]] and Fort Yaxier. [[FlySubway]] already served Sunshine Coast and Kanto from Thunderbird, so Airplaneguy9 decided to do three new services, TBI-FYI, SSI-FYI and KTI-FYI. As for small gates, JDX wasn't complete yet, and so Airplaneguy9 had a chance to fly to [[Espil Ecilidae Airport|Espil]] and [[Carnoustie International Airport|Carnoustie]] from Larkspur, however, the airline was told by autobus that he could only have a gate at Espil. On the same day, FlyLumeva got two MBS adverts at the [[The Amazing Race 10|TAR10]] stream and the February 2020 GSM. The airline changed its airline code back to LU, due to a warp sign bug, and FT was given to Lumeva Airlink.

FlyLumeva, previously Lunaria, is an airline for the MRT, which aims to connect southwestern Epsilon and Zeta. The airline is owned by the Epsilonian Republic and the Region of Lumeva, and is headed by Airplaneguy9.

History

Pre-operations
When Airplaneguy9 got membership status on the MRT, he quickly decided on an airline. The airline was to be called SolAir, after his future nation of Novus Sol. However, before he started, he worked on starting up the national airline of Lumeva, ForesneAir. After helping with building Foresne's Omega Hills Airfield, he managed to acquire two gates. At this point, he assigned two Aero A-3s to the gates. He also had one Aero A-4, but he wanted to use it between larger airports. At this point, SolAir unveiled their new livery, and announced an alliance with ForesneAir called the OneBlock Alliance, the first multiserver alliance. SolAir then got a flight to John Denver Int'l, in Southport, their first complete flight. However, there was a problem: Foresne hadn't reached Senator yet, and JDI was still under construction. So Airplaneguy9 had to wait, and work on something else.

He renamed the airline Lunaria to avoid copyright issues with FlyBahia, assigned a new registration of 'WU' to mean Wenyanga, his future Zeta city (before, planes used 7D, for Foresne), and acquired flights to Larkspur Lilyflower and Sunshine Coast. He requested gates at Fort Yaxier and Chan Bay, in order to compete against SkyTrans, and a gate at Airchester, to compete against Waypoint to SSI. However, there were more problems: Lunaria didn't have a medium-sized aircraft to fly the route. Airplaneguy9's answer was to contact TheSubway, and order 12 SI-A-300 aircraft, with further options for 30 more aircraft. At this point, the airline had 5 Aero A-3s, 1 Aero A-4 and 12 SI-A-300s to its name. When WU-SAA, the first SI-A-300, flew on January 17 between the Subway Industries lab and the Aero Aviation lab, it marked a turning point in Lunaria's history. Captain Mossie piloted the aircraft.

Operations start
Lunaria obtained even more flights when it managed to get two codeshare flights with ForesneAir through OneBlock and the Lumeva Airline Group. In turn, ForesneAir codeshared the Foresne - John Denver route. On January 17, hours before the first SI-A-300 flight, Lunaria offered a company to build a long-haul, two-engined aircraft to operate longer routes throughout Zeta. Jupiter Motors, whom by coincidence Airplaneguy9 had once worked for, took up the challenge, and a team led by Weier built an aircraft so long it took up nearly all of Aero Aviation's lab space, and had to be shortened at first. Lunaria ordered 10 of this 'Jupitair A-50' type, but later swapped it out for airplane320's 777-300ER, specially customized for Lunaria. This version introduced Business Class and First Class on aircraft. While not getting a Fort Yaxier or Chan Bay flight, Airplane managed to get a gate at Kanto. The first 777 touched down at the Aero Aviation lab on 25 January, where it was painted into the distinct blue livery of Lunaria.

On 26 January, WU-SAC, an SI-A-300, operated LU750 between Sunshine Coast and Kanto, making it Lunaria's first flight. It was a win for the Lumeva Region, and for all involved. Passengers paid as high as $10 to sit on Lunaria's opening service. On the same day, the airline also became an operator for the Climax C-10, when it leased 5 aircraft from National Airlines for ultra-long haul flights.

Renaming
On January 29, Airplaneguy9 submitted a letter to Epsilon President Vulpicula, giving a FlyEpsilon idea. While being rejected initially, it was decided to create different airlines for different regions, like how FlyBahia was the national airline of Bahia. Later that day, Airplaneguy9, i____7d and PeacemakerX5 (both the Lumevan leaders) decided to suspend the Lumeva Airline Group, and merge all airlines into one airline, named FlyLumeva. The new airline was based in Foresne, with offices in Peacopolis, Southoak and Stone Bay. Each leader owned 25% of the company, later reduced to 10% after ktkren777 joined the company. The remaining percentages went to the Republic.

Over the period of a week, all assets of Lunaria were redone into the new FlyLumeva livery. While WU-SAC (now 7D-SAC) remained in the legacy Lunaria livery, with a change to the interior and the tail, other aircraft were changed to have the Flying Tree on their tails, a white fuselage with brown and green text above the windows (or in the case of the 777, large green text), and redesigned seats. Until February 1, flights were cancelled, and passengers were booked onto FlyBahia or for a later date. Flights relaunched on February 1, with the new Oak Class and Spruce Class check-in opening the next day. The website went back up on February 3, and online booking was available from February 4, after passengers were left stranded at Kanto, due to no check-in.

In preparation for Foresne's upcoming Omega Hills Airfield, all gates owned by ForesneAir went to FlyLumeva, and Lunaria to Lumeva Airlink, with planned flights to Peacopolis and Foresne's Aviatree-Kaexio International, the main airport of the Lumeva SMP. FlyLumeva also decided to hub at 2 of the 5 concourses at FAK. FlyLumeva also purchased a 22-storey HQ in Peacopolis and a 7-storey office block in Stone Bay.

Stanley Air Alliance
On February 7, 2020, FlyLumeva left the OneBlock Alliance after it was abolished, and asked to join the Stanley Air Alliance (SAA). After two days of voting, the airline got 4/4 votes to be in, and joined the alliance. Gates, planes, and check-in counters were changed to show the new membership. The joining opened up a larger range of gates for FlyLumeva, allowing them to break into other markets.

The problem was, the only medium gates were at Thunderbird and Fort Yaxier. FlySubway already served Sunshine Coast and Kanto from Thunderbird, so Airplaneguy9 decided to do three new services, TBI-FYI, SSI-FYI and KTI-FYI. As for small gates, JDX wasn't complete yet, and so Airplaneguy9 had a chance to fly to Espil and Carnoustie from Larkspur, however, the airline was told by autobus that he could only have a gate at Espil. On the same day, FlyLumeva got two MBS adverts at the TAR10 stream and the February 2020 GSM. The airline changed its airline code back to LU, due to a warp sign bug, and FT was given to Lumeva Airlink.

On 11 February 2020, against all odds, Peacopolis was upgraded to Senator. This allowed FlyLumeva to obtain two gates at the new 7-gate Peacopolis Airfield, and another one on behalf of Lumeva Airlink. Flights that were due to operate from Foresne almost a month earlier, but could not, were immediately diverted to Peacopolis, including the new Espil flight (PCE-JDX was still delayed at this point). When Loydon joined Lumeva, FlyLumeva immediately sprang up, taking two gates at Loydon Kensington Airfield and an entire terminal at Loydon Hounslow Int'l, both to be built. On a darker note, 7D-SAC, the aircraft that had been now operating LU750 for two weeks, was changed from 4B14E to a full 18E seating arrangement, due to flight shortage.

Aero A-3

  • Width: 17 Blocks
  • Length: 15 Blocks
  • Aircraft: 20
  • On order: 0
  • Cabin Layout: 4 Economy

The Aero A-3 is the third and last of the A-1 series, being twice as long as the A-1. The A-3 also features the upgraded cockpit version (the A-3B). The first aircraft was delivered to Lunaria on January 13. Being a supporter of Aero Aviation, the aircraft was chosen as the best amongst the A-1, A-2 and A-4 (though 5 A-1s were delivered much later). In a joint order, the Lumeva Airline Group ordered 20 aircraft. ForesneAir got 5 aircraft, while Lunaria got the other 15. The A-3 is built to compete with the ITP-1000, SI-A-15, and EAM X-5/10. With the merge, 10 aircraft were repainted into the new FlyLumeva colours, and another 10 into Lumeva Airlink colours (the original ForesneAir colours).

Subway SI-A-300

  • Width: 37 blocks
  • Length: 40 blocks
  • Aircraft: 3
  • On order: 27
  • Cabin Layout: 2 Business 14 Economy or 18 Economy

Subway Industries' SI-A-300 model is the lengthened version of the SI-A-100, featuring 10 blocks more space. This version is built with standard winglets and not split scimitars as seen on other -300s, and is designated the SI-A-371. It is FlyLumeva's only medium-haul aircraft, built to operate longer routes. It was bought from Subway Industries on January 12, 2020, with an order for 12 aircraft and further options for 30 more, and the first aircraft, registered as WU-SAA (now 7D-SAA), took to the skies on January 17. A further 18 were ordered on January 29. The aircraft will be the fleet backbone by June 2020, being the aircraft that will launch MRT aviation into the Zeta age.

Boeing 777-300ER

  • Width: blocks
  • Length: blocks
  • Aircraft: 1
  • On order: 9
  • Cabin Layout: - First - Business - Economy

FlyLumeva became the launch customer for the 777 when it placed an order for 10 aircraft on January 19, 2020. The aircraft features First and Business Class, making it the first aircraft in the fleet to do so, and the only one to use First Class. The first aircraft, ms/n 2, was registered 7D-ABA and currently sits at the Aero Aviation lab. The 1-1-1 Economy and 1-1 First and Business layout make it a comfy aircraft.

Climax C-10

  • Width: blocks
  • Length: blocks
  • Aircraft: 1
  • On order: 4
  • Cabin Layout: 6 Business - Economy

The largest aircraft in FlyLumeva's fleet is reserved for ultra long-haul flights. It was the first foreign airline to use the type after National Airlines when it leased 5 aircraft (which should be returned to National in 2023), and features a 1-3-1 Economy and 1-1-1 Business layout.
