Publication : Low-Fare & Regional Airlines 30 YearsLow-Fare & Regional Airlines is the leading business-to-business publication dedicated to the low-fare and regional airline industry and has served this vibrant aviation sector for 30 years. The magazine delivers focused editorial coverage of its market, in which, of course, the low-fare airlines are the biggest drivers of aviation’s growth and the regional airlines provide both social links and important services for business.

Through features providing key information to help airlines run their operations more efficiently, Low-Fare & Regional Airlines ensures that the decision-makers at these companies have all the relevant facts at their disposal. The coverage spreads across all the disciplines involved in running an airline, including fleet choices, financing, maintenance, sales, marketing, training, passenger service plus government and regulatory issues.

Throughout its publishing history, since it began as Commuter World in 1984, the magazine has consistently been recognised as a clear, independent voice and an integral part of the industry. This position within aviation is underlined by regular coverage of ERA (European Regions Airline Association), RAA (Regional Airline Association), ELFAA (European Low-Fares Airline Association) and attendance at many major industry events.

"In today's rapidly changing environment, the need for information and creative approach is critical. Low-Fare & Regional Airlines provides this information across a broad spectrum, incorporating all of the elements which comprise the economics of our aviation sector. I consider reading Low-Fare & Regional Airlines as information for evolutionary strategy and staying ahead of the game."
Phil Reed, Vice President, Network, Resource Planning & Analytics, Endeavor Air
Low-Fare & Regional Airlines has served the industry for decades with accurate and valuable information, with a professional and constructive attitude.”

Low-Fare & Regional Airlines has recognised this with its increased coverage of this blossoming geographical region. This, together with its independent reporting on all aspects of regional and low-fare airline operations, makes Low-Fare & Regional Airlines an invaluable source of business intelligence."
Gianfranco Beting, Marketing Director, Azul Linhas Aereas
