Airways Seeks Writers With Photo Skills and a Passion for Aviation

Airways-ArticleAirways, a magazine dedicated to the commercial airline industry, has recently been revamped. Newly installed publisher and editor-in-chief Enrique Perrella wants to broaden the reach of the 20-year-old pub and appeal to a younger generation of plane fanatics.

Perrella is looking for writers with a knack for photography and who share his readers’ love for aviation. All articles must be submitted with photos, so be upfront about your camera skills. Freelancers can pitch any section, and there are plenty to choose from:

Popular sections include “Airways Traveler,” comprised of trip reports in which the authors take a flight and document the experience with photos and airport reviews. A new department, “Airport & City Guide,” will offer readers a list of 10 things an aviation fan might do while on a layover at a particular airport. Another new department for the redesign, “Airways Top 10,” will showcase the best 10 things of a selected topic, such as the best in-flight entertainment, food or uniforms.
