A Letter to Our Subscribers

The editors of Airline Weekly want you—our customer—to be the first to hear some exciting news. This week, Airline Weekly was purchased by Skift, the travel industry’s largest intelligence platform.

This merger excites us for a lot of reasons. For one thing, having the backing of a much bigger media company means we can provide a product and level of service beyond anything imaginable just a few weeks ago. In short, being a part of Skift means we’ll be able to do a lot more. Dig deeper. Go further.

Because of its sheer size, Skift will provide us new intelligence sources and opportunities. But rest assured, Airline Weekly will retain its signature style. In fact, the editorial team is remaining in place. As you know, Airline Weekly’s brand has always centered on providing more insightful and fiercely independent coverage of the industry. That’s an approach Skift embraces and very much plans to support.

All in all, we think this newfound energy will ensure that Airline Weekly continues providing the industry its unique coverage well into the future—and improve it a great deal along the way.

Thanks as always for your support. Airline Weekly wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for you. All three of us will be at Skift Global Forum in New York City this Thursday and Friday. If you’re attending, please do say hello. Also watch out for the announcement on Skift.com tomorrow morning.
