From the Editor

Airports International was the world’s first airport industry magazine when it was launched back in June 1968. During the last five decades, the magazine, like the industry itself, has witnessed many changes. But perhaps the biggest of them all is the speed at which information now travels. This is reflected in our website, which has international news updated on a daily basis.  Our predecessors could never have dreamed of such an asset 50 years ago!

Today, our website gives almost unlimited space for editorial content, far beyond what is capable in a print-only title. This on-line version maintains the same high editorial standards of the print magazine while also adding video content and a comprehensive directory that lists aviation industry manufacturers and suppliers from across the globe. At the same time we promise to uphold the same integrity and production values that have steered our title throughout its entire history.

Existing readers will know that our magazine isn’t dominated by politics, we’re more interested in products and services. Our aim is to keep subscribers abreast of the latest developments in technology and equipment for the airport and airline business and we are proud of our truly global reach. To that end, we always welcome newsworthy input to help keep our readers up-to-date and we hope you will get in touch.

We have ‘hard copy’ subscribers in over 100 countries who together constitute the largest audited readership for an airport business title in the world – be assured we will remain at the forefront of aviation reporting so that the magazine and its on-line ‘sister’ continue to evolve with the industry.

The Airports International team looks forward to meeting you at some of the world’s most prestigious events.
