An Airtug in GTA IV.

The Airtug is an airport tug featured in Grand Theft Auto IV.


The Airtug, a low-power tug available only within the tarmacs of Francis International Airport (FIA), appears to be a replacement for the Baggage Handler featured in the GTA III Era, as well as the similarly designed Tug. Like the Baggage Handler, the Airtug's performance is ranked as one of the poorest in the game. Its weaker engine means that its speed is considerably slow, but makes up for with good acceleration and moderately good cornering due to its low speed and light weight; the Airtug may also seat up to two occupants. Unlike the Baggage Handler in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, however, it can no longer be used to tow the luggage carts or towbars in the airport. As usual, the Airtug, being property of the FIA, features FlyUS livery.

Despite the fact that it is one of the slowest, least-useful vehicles in the game, it is one of the more difficult vehicles to acquire - straying into the airport's runway area will earn the player a four star wanted level.


  • The three default radio stations in the Airtug are Integrity 2.0, WKTT Radio and PLR.
  • Driving an Airtug around the Francis International Airport will cause Airtugs to spawn in the parking lot outside and very rarely spawn in traffic.
  • The Airtug is actually a pretty good performer offroad, as it can squeeze into tight spaces, such as in-between rocks and stair cases.
