AAAE Communications Group

A member service created to produce airport marketing brochures, economic impact reports, videos, annual reports, master plan summaries, special magazine inserts - and much more.

Did you ever think you'd have to be a marketing genius and public relations rainmaker just to run an airport?

Your airport is a public service. And now more than ever, you must develop creative and dynamic programs that remind the public just how valuable your airport is to the community. So you naturally solicit the help of local advertising and public relations agencies to help make your message fly.

(Or you try to do it yourself in between all your other responsibilities. Isn't it interesting how projects that get squeezed in seem to be the ones that fall through the cracks?)

But why pay Madison Avenue dollars to creative agencies that don't know your ILS from the AIP? Why overburden your already heavy workload when your community relations and marketing projects need extra special attention to reflect that creative pizzazz?

And why compromise on quality? Especially now that AAAE has gathered aviation's best writers, designers, photographers and videographers who know from an insider's perspective just how to package your message to get the most impact for your investment.

The AAAE Communications Group knows what you're talking about!

Why the AAAE Communications Group?

The American Association of Airport Executives has over 60 years of experience helping airport professionals meet the needs of their airports and communities.

More recently, we've built a top-notch team of award-winning creative professionals that brings you Airport Magazine, Airport Report, Airport Report Express and, most recently, the ground-breaking Airport News and Training Network (ANTN), broadcasting the latest in education and news programming to you via satellite from our state-of-the-art studios at ANTN headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.

We have it all - the talent, the technology and the background.

Give the Public What They Want

Now you can afford to produce professional videos, brochures, annual reports and a variety of special products that help your passengers, tenants and other users - or potential users - understand the valuable role your airport plays in the local economy and the entire national air service network.

The possibilities are endless. Here are just a few for starters:

  • A creatively designed brochure summarizing your airport's economic impact in easy-to-understand terms.

  • Your master plan distilled into a colorful four-page format to be distributed during community meetings.

  • An upbeat video highlighting all the passenger amenities at your airport.

  • A program that focuses on the economic, commercial and tourism benefits of your region. We can develop an entire campaign for you that includes a video, brochures and a magazine insert.

  • Your annual report, combining that valuable financial data with a lively, photo-filled profile of the airport and all the important people who make it run successfully.

  • An elegant brochure geared to marketing your general aviation facilities to corporations.

  • An entertaining, informative brochure or video describing your noise abatement and sound-proofing programs.

  • A slide presentation or video that will show scenes of your airport as you make live presentations before professional groups.

No job is too complex and no airport too small. All you have to do is tell us your marketing objective and your budget, and the AAAE Communications Group will do the rest!

* Please Note

If you would like the AAAE Communications Group to handle the professional printing of your publication the minimum order required is 1500. Due to the cost of professional printing in the Metropolitan Washington Area orders smaller than 1500 are more cost effective when printed by your local vendor or copy service.
