I get by with a little help from my fruit-having friends.
If you’re like me then one of the first things that you want to get when you start a new game of Animal Crossing is all the different kinds of fruit so that you can have those fruit trees growing near home. Or maybe I’m the only person who wants to do that, I don’t know. But more importantly, in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the quickest way to do this is to just go and visit your friends because lots of people have different fruits growing than you do.
So how do you hop on a plane and fly over to your friends’ islands? First, it needs to be your second day on the island. Nook will announce that the airport is now open and then you’ll be able to go down, talk to the lovely Dodo at the counter, and let him know you want to fly.
Your friend will have to do the same, but instead of saying that they want to fly they’ll need to say, “I want visitors.” Doing so, will open their gate basically giving you permission to head over to their island.
You will need internet access in order to do so, but once you’re both connected, you’ll be on a flight to Superbutt Island or Boobtopia in no time. From there you can trade fruits at your own discretion. Just be kind and courteous or our God, Nintendo, will come after you.
