AirlineGeeks Basic: A New Way to Consume Aviation News

Washington, D.C, April 1, 2019 — AirlineGeeks prepares for the future of aviation news as a new decade approaches with AirlineGeeks Basic, a first in the industry.

AirlineGeeks will be the first news site in the aviation industry to offer a basic fare for its readers. Beginning April 1, 2019, AirlineGeeks will offer the basic fare option to all readers visiting the website. The brand new transformational basic subscription ensures even the most budget-conscious readers can enjoy the website to the fullest.

With AirlineGeeks Basic, AirlineGeeks will be the first aviation news website to cater to those looking for a low-cost alternative to their aviation news.

“Reader feedback is one of the most important things for AirlineGeeks and as we evolve our offering as a company with the introduction of AirlineGeeks Basic, we know there will be an option for everybody,” said Ryan Ewing, Founder and President of AirlineGeeks. “Our team has spent two years developing the concept and we know you are going to enjoy the innovative perks included in the AirlineGeeks Basic subscription.”

All readers visiting the website will now have the option to choose between the AirlineGeeks Basic and the standard AirlineGeeks fare. The AirlineGeeks Basic subscription is FREE, but there are some restrictions that apply.
