Runway Girl Network is unlike any other aviation news service in the world. Representing a collective of talented aviation journalists, the award-winning outlet combines deep industry intelligence with first-hand knowledge of the airline passenger experience (#PaxEx on Twitter) to provide unrivaled news and insight to both industry stakeholders and the traveling public.
An inherently social site Runway Girl Network is transforming the traditional aviation B2B trade news model to encompass a B2B2C model to consider passengers’ needs and wants. It provides coverage across four key categories: Passenger Safety, Comfort, Connectivity and Services.
RGN’s columns, Up Front, Details and Design, and IFE Film Review, serve as opinion and analysis sections of the site, while our Multimedia features (RGN Live at expos, #PaxEx Podcast, In Conversation and #PaxEx TV) include on-location reporting and interviews, and bring meaningful audio and visual highlights to our audience.
Runway Girl Network also serves as a ‘Lean Into Aviation’ platform for highlighting the achievements of women in aviation, promotes equality, and celebrates culture, compassion and diversity.
