* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', if allied with the Brotherhood of Steel, you can signal for Vertibird transport, which is particularly useful in the overhauled v1.5 Survival Mode, where normal fast-travel is disabled.

* The ''Granblue'' from the online game VideoGame/GranblueFantasy takes you around the WorldInTheSky, but it is limited to the places you've visited. It can even be improved by spending currency on it.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' doesn't have an airship per se, but every Skell functionally becomes this after obtaining the flight module. It allows you to fly anywhere, and thus reach previously inaccessible places, as well as make navigating the treacherous much easier, especially when used in conjunction with the [[WarpWhistle quick travel]] feature.

missed. [-Why does somebody always ask that?-]

* Exception: ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII'' ditches the standard Global Airship of the series for a series of teleporters throughout the land. It cuts down on travel time, but not by much...

* Common in the Franchise/TalesSeries. ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' and ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' had the Rheiards, and ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' had the Albiore. In both cases, they are important parts of the storyline and are acquired around the third of the way, far before you reach TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon -- although in the Albiore's case, it had to be powered up through late-game {{Side Quest}}s before it was truly able to go everywhere.

** The sequel, ''VideoGame/SeikenDensetsu3'', included ships, a limited cannon-travel system, and a giant sea-turtle before procuring the use of the flying white dragon which appeared in ''Secret of Mana''.

* The Fly HM move in the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series.
** As many fans will affectionately point out, this move can be used by many creatures far too small to easily carry the protagonist's backpack, let alone the protagonist, or across a region of a country. Typically, Flying-type ComMons are capable of doing so despite their initial forms being tiny (to the point that some actually have the world "tiny" in their species descriptions in the Pokédex, such as Pidgey being a Tiny Bird Pokémon and Pidove being a Tiny Pigeon Pokémon).

Added DiffLines:

** To a lesser extent, the recurring Fly HM move; though that one counts more as a WarpWhistle as the player doesn't get to control the flying Pokémon directly, unlike the above example.

Mode of transport late in the game that allows you to travel to nearly any location on the world map fairly quickly. This is almost always [[ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld something that flies]]. Often, [[SchizoTech it's far beyond]] the {{Technology Level|s}} of the rest of the world, having been created by the resident MadScientist, or taken from an [[LostTechnology ancient civilization]]. Not to be confused with [[UsefulNotes/{{Airships}} airships]] found in RealLife.

* About halfway through the southern hemisphere in ''VideoGame/LittleBigAdventure'', you get to purchase your own catamaran which allows you to sail the entire hemisphere for free. About halfway through the northern hemisphere (you see the pattern), you meet a flying dinosaur which will take you nearly anywhere in the northern hemisphere.
** Partially averted in ''Little Big Adventure 2''. While you still have your flying dragon at home, once on the [[spoiler:alien planet]], you have to rely on rented or hijacked transport.
