About Us

Skift Airline Weekly is a subscriber-supported publication, paid for by readers who want a more interesting, more valuable read about the airline business. Each Monday, Skift Airline Weekly reports who’s flying where, new marketing approaches, fleet, finance and key airline and airport data. And most importantly, Skift Airline Weekly readers enjoy insightful analysis and new ideas found nowhere else.

Skift Airline Weekly launched in 2004, dedicated to helping professionals follow the global airline industry’s most important trends and developments. Founders Jay Shabat, Seth Kaplan, and Jason Cottrell grew the publication into a leading voice on industry affairs, read by a large majority of the sector’s most influential executives.

In 2018, Airline Weekly became part of Skift, the largest travel industry intelligence platform providing media, insights, and marketing to key sectors of travel. The Skift Airline Weekly team consists of journalists and airline industry professionals with a passion — some might call it an obsession — with commercial passenger aviation worldwide.
