SALES – DIGITAL AND PRINT

In January 2021 World Airnews became a digital only publication as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the effect this virus had on aviation across the globe – grounding fleets and crew and effectively putting a stop to world travel in March 2021. As time goes on and aviation recovers we do plan to bring back a print version but this will – as always – be dependent on the advertising support we receive.

Embracing this new technology our digital or e-Magazine is available on desktop and mobile. Subscribers ( paid and free) receive an email notification each month and can read our latest news, features and articles.

The print readership survey statistics reflected below relate to one conducted when we were still printing copies and posting them out to the rest of Africa – although out dated it does make for an interesting read.

For more recent data about our current digital footprint – still in our infancy – please send us an email: heidi@airnews.co.za or joan@airnews.co.za
