Our Story

AirlineGeeks.com was founded in February of 2013 by Ryan Ewing, a young “AvGeek” in the Washington D.C. area. Since then, the website has grown to 22+ active team members located across the globe. Each team member joined on the principle of writing about passion in the industry, with the intent of spreading the word and excitement to those both young and old. We are all here for the same reason: we love aviation. Being the youngest team of airline industry journalists out there, we are able to utilize our unique viewpoint to reach thousands of readers each month based on news releases, unique viewpoints, and exclusive stories for both airlines and other related aviation businesses.

Our Purpose

AirlineGeeks strives to deliver the latest airline and aviation news around the globe in real-time, offering a unique vantage point from that of the young “AvGeek.” We pride ourselves in delivering exceptional stories, while also helping our young readers and team members in fulfilling and further developing their passion for aviation.

Events

In August of 2015, AirlineGeeks was selected to join the Nasdaq Global Newswire Distribution Network, a testament to the growing awareness of the website.

In February of 2016, team member Ryan Krautkremer, in conjunction with several members at AirlineGeeks, created “Grounded,” a documentary detailing the aerospace industry as a whole in its current status. This film takes a look at three facets where interest is dwindling: spaceflight, aviation, and drones, and what we can expect for the future of flight.

This Fall will mark a new look into aviation, as AirlineGeeks has partnered with the largest airline in the world, American Airlines, to bring our readers AAviation Day 2016. On Friday, August 19th, readers across the globe will be traveling to many of American’s hubs, learning all about the airline and its operations, including tours, meet and greets and even viewing the latest aircraft to join the fleet, the Boeing 787.

Furthermore, AirlineGeeks.com has closely covered high-level aviation events, including Malaysia 370 and 17, along with Asiana 214. Coverage of these events were broadcasted in front of the publication’s 17,000+ Twitter followers.
