What is AirlineReporter?

Welcome, and thank you stopping by, where we love to share our passion for aviation, travel and the airline industry since 2009. We are a team of over 25 writers, located in 15 different cities, on 4 continents. We have flown over 2,000,000 miles to bring engaging content to our readers. Most of us are working professionals, who want to share our passion with you.

There are many negative voices about the airline business out there and we try to provide the context behind the stories. Many people see airlines as an “evil” business and that flying “is not like it used to be.” AirlineReporter tries to remind folks that flying can still be a magical experience and it is not like the way it used to be; in many cases it is better.

We hit a broad audience of aviation fans, frequent fliers, people who work in the airline business, and others in the media that cover aviation. We are proud of the impact we have made with our hundreds  of thousands of readers each month and our strong social media presence, with about 100,000 engaged Twitter followers.

We have been on, written for, or quoted on a number of different media sources, including: CNN, Washington Post, BBC, CNBC, Bloomberg, Costco Connection, Reuters, CTV (Canada AM), CBC, NPR, Marketplace, FOX, AOL Travel, 9News Australia, Huffington Post, Forbes, APEX magazine, USA Today, KING5, MSNBC (now NBC News), Puget Sound Business Journal, Seattle Times, Gadling, Alaska Airlines’ Blog, and others.
