How do you unlock fast travel in Rune Factory 4?

Rune Factory 4 Airship


To gain the ability to fast travel in Rune Factory 4, you’ll need to get an Airship License. When you first start the game, this option won’t be available. Instead, you’ll need to make your way through a few Prince Orders before it pops up.

In my game, I had to get every license available and throw two festivals before the option to obtain an Airship License popped up. I’m not sure precisely what the prerequisite is to unlock the opportunity, but I know it popped up not too long after my Prince Rank increased from Beginner Prince to Struggling Prince. This also happened around the time I rescued Dylas from the Water Ruins, so that might be a factor as well.

You can fast travel anywhere that has a save point as long as you’ve discovered it. You can also fast travel to the various seasonal fields you find, even though they don’t have a save point.
