CRUISING HEIGHTS is India's best known monthly aviation magazine with equal interests in air cargo, travel and tourism. In its four years of existence, Cruising Heights has received accolades from the Minister of Civil Aviation, Aviation CEOs, Airport Developers, Travel Agents Associations and others for its path-breaking stories.One of the first true aviation magazines of the country, Cruising Heights was started with the idea of supporting professionals in the airline business to make informed choices on a variety of subjects from ground handling to cargo to airport development-all of which are transforming the Indian aviation scene in mind-boggling ways. Later, due to the interest it generated and in response to demands from the travel and tourism industry stakeholders we have targeted the general reader-the educated Indian who is keen to be an informed Indian-to know what's happening in the business.
Cruising Heights December 2018 issue concentrates on how aviation infrastructure - or rather the lack of it - could be a major hindrance to the growth of aviation in the country. The cover story looks at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport that remains constrained for slots even though it created a record of logging the highest number of flights from an airport with a single runway. The magazine also looks at the ups and downs in the Jet Airways saga as well as two airports in the world: one of them the world's largest at Istanbul that was recently inaugurated and the other one in Mexico that has become the focus of a political battle even before construction could start. Also a major focus on the LEAP engine. On July 13, 2008, GE Aviation and Safran Aircraft Engines, partners in the 50/50 CFM International joint venture, made aviation history by launching the advanced LEAP-X engine programme. Ten years later, this engine is delivering everything that was promised that day and more. Plus all the regular features in Cruising Heights.
