More about TheAviationWriter.com

Officially launched in November 2012, TheAviationWriter.com has quickly established itself as one of the world’s most popular independent aviation blogs, with a focus on airlines, aircraft, airports, cargo and anything else that might interest an aviation enthusiast.

Offering a regular stream of photos, videos, info-graphics and stories, TheAviationWriter.com attracts more than 220,000 page views each month… an impressive achievement for such a young blog. The bulk of traffic hails from the United States, United Kingdom and Canada (in that order), while other leading markets include Australia, Germany, France, Netherlands, India and the United Arab Emirates.

TheAviationWriter.com is owned and written by Robeel Haq, a British expat currently working at Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, based in Abu Dhabi.

Message from the editor

Before joining the aviation industry, I used to write about it! For 6.5 years, I worked as Senior Group Editor at ITP Publishing in Dubai, the largest magazine publisher in the Middle East.

Here, I overlooked the editorial for all of the company’s ‘transportation’ publications, including the flagship business-to-business magazines Aviation Business and Logistics Middle East, as well as www.arabiansupplychain.com and www.aviationbusinessme.com.

Being passionate about all things aviation – an avgeek, if you like – this blog seems a great way to continue writing about the industry and share my views with people who are already familiar with my work, while also attracting and interacting with some new readers too.

This is a personal blog – the opinions and views expressed here are my own and do not represent my employer or anyone else that I’m affiliated with.
