AirlineGeeks.com began in February, 2013 as a one-man (er… teenager, rather) show. Since then, we’ve grown to have 20 active team members, and yes, we’re still growing. Some of us are looking to work in the aviation industry as professionals when we grow older. Some of us are still trying to decide what we want to do. That’s okay though, because we’re all here for the same reason: we love the airlines. We’re the youngest team of airline industry journalists out there.

  • Having greatly enjoyed last years MegaDo – with phenominal access provided by the excellent Aegean Airlines (open thanks to them once again) – I really would love to see what Austrian and Brussels Airlines have in store.
    Austrians hub in VIE in particular has always struck be as an incredibly efficent operation. On a work trip we had a 35 minute (official) connection from Montenegro to London – my colleage was litterally sweating that we would never make it – as we landed with exactly 35mins on the clock. In the end we had about 20 minutes spare at the gate.

    The charter looks like a terrific way to go ‘behind the scenes’ of these European airports and hotels whilst also networking with aviation and tourism professionals – and enthusiasts! With the changing European environment, the schedule of events will give the opportunity to garner first hand from influencers what will be instore for European and international aviation and tourism in the coming years.
    In the Star Alliance’s 20th Anniversary Year it is also an opportunity to discuss the future of global strategic alliances – and celebrate!
