Aviation, we mean Business

Our Credentials

Our Publishing Group was established in 1972, and for the last 35 years, we have made it our mission to produce quality trade publications. Based in Brussels, the European Capital, BART International journalists have direct contact with senior officials from the European Commission, Eurocontrol and EASA. This easy access allows them to gather exclusive information not readily available to any other aviation magazine. BART International is an independent publication and the official publication for the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in May 2007. Our loyalty is to our readers to whom we give the straight scoop and vital information they can’t find anywhere else.

An International Scope

The Business Aviation Industry in Europe is just one aspect of our publication. Of equal importance is our endeavor to keep our readers up-to-date on what’s going on in the rest of the world. We can introduce them to whatever products or services you have to offer, without discrimination or favoritism to any particular country or region. BART International opens the door to global communication. We regularly publish unique statistics and in-depth analysis of the worldwide aircraft market. No other European trade journal covers your field of interest so comprehensively.

Your Target

Our readership is international. While more than 80% of our circulation is designated for Europe, we have a loyal readership in the US domestic market, as well as dedicated subscribers in Russia and the Middle East. Decision-makers in the Top 200 European companies receive BART International. Our readers are professionals: managers in corporate and air taxi flight departments, professional pilots, CFOs and engineers. Our distribution list reads like a veritable Who’s Who of Corporate Aviation.
