Key launches major title for airport industry

Key Publishing is launching a new magazine to add to its growing portfolio of business titles for the growing air travel market.

The launch of Airports of the World follows a trial edition of the magazine earlier in the year to test the market.

The bi-monthly title will have an initial print run of 65,000 copies, target airline and airport staff and will cover issues as wide as equipment, security and future development plans.

Key Publishing already produces a raft of air travel-related titles including FlyPast, Airline World, AirForces Monthly, Air Enthusiast, Air International and Today’s Pilot.

Adrian Cox, managing director of Key Publishing, said: “Following the phenomenal success of our Airports of the World One-Off Special Publication in early 2005 we listened to our readers and discovered a huge demand for a new magazine devoted to the airport scene.

“With the wealth of knowledge provided by our in-house editorial team and top class contributors, coupled with Key Publishing’s ability to access areas within airports not open to the general public, ‘airports of the world’ is sure to meet this demand.”

The air travel industry has grown massively in the past decade since the rise of the no-frills airlines and expansion of tourist routes to Asia.

The government has also pledged to build or expand a number of airports in the UK to cope with what will be an unprecedented increase in passenger levels in the next 15 years.
