LARA specials are published 2-3 times per year to place additional focus on particularly important areas or topical issues affecting low-fare and regional airlines.
The specials canvas opinions of industry leaders and profile organisations flying high in the sectors under review, providing an ideal opportunity for participating companies to share their vision and raise awareness of new service solutions.
In-depth editorial features explore the considerations airlines should take when deliberating future investments, and help suppliers to overcome challenges and identify new opportunities for efficiency or revenue gains. Each special is published as a supplement or dedicated internal section and distributed alongside a bi-monthly issue of LARA magazine. This ensures the content reaches a diverse global network of low-fare and regional aviation professionals, including senior representatives from a magnitude of operators in this sector.
