The first section of the magazine will be devoted to the ‘Month In Review’ giving our readers an overview of the latest developments in commercial aviation in the Near East. The broad geographical swath of the ‘Near East’ will allow us to also provide coverage on the emerging aviation markets in places like Armenia, Bangladesh, Libya and Ethiopia. Within the news section will be a ‘market watch’ briefing, detailing the latest aircraft orders, sales and deliveries of aircraft in the Near East. Also within the news section, we will include brief financial analysis and opinions of current market trends related to aviation. News
Photographs We plan to use ample photos of both interior and exterior of aircraft, airports and maintenance and catering facilities.
Monthly Columns A series of monthly columns will cover different topics of interest to our readers. There will be a short section of traveler’s tips and inside track information specific to the region’s airports and business aviation, an executive profile (featuring an airline CEO or similar), an aviation employee profile (featuring a baggage handler, flight attendant, air traffic controller), a Business Aviation Update, Airport Report (each month we will cover one of the region’s airports), Safety and Maintenance Update, and a section on the In-Flight experience (catering, cabin service, luxury travel). The last page of the magazine will be a first person essay detailing a trip taken in our region by a Celebrity. In short, the publication will not only be informative but will have a lighter, more readable side to it, appealing to a wider audience.
Features Every month we will have a cover story and in-depth feature focusing on an airline, an airport, a catering or a maintenance / engineering / technical innovation, a safety issue, or an investigative report.
