Flight Daily News

Representing Flight International during major aerospace conventions and air shows is the Flight Daily News. This daily publication covers the world's four main air shows: the Farnborough Airshow, the Paris Air Showmarker, Asian Aerospace, and the Dubai Airshow, as well as Middle East Business Aviation.

In 2007, Flight Daily News was awarded the title of the world’s best air show daily publication by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the World Development Forum for the third successive year - an honour held only by Flight Daily News.

Flight Daily News's sister publication is the Flight Evening News. Launched at the 2004 National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Las Vegas, it was a new concept in air show daily newspapers. Traditionally, show dailies have appeared in the morning, covering the happenings of the previous day. Flight Evening News published instead on the same day.

Journalists cover stories from press conferences, the exhibition floor and static display throughout the morning. The newspaper is designed and printed in a matter of hours, and handed delegates leaving the show late that afternoon. Flight Evening News is the only daily publication to follow this format, and it markets the information it provides as "today's news today".

Flight Evening News can be found at NBAA, as well as its European equivalent, the European Business Associations' Convention and Exhibition (EBACE).
