Award: Infanger Honored by Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA): 25 Years of Aviation in Business Media

FORT ATKINSON, WI--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - Few industries have endured the volatility that the aviation industry has since deregulation in 1978. At the center of each challenge for more than 25 years has been Airport Business magazine's Editorial Director John Infanger, an expert on the industry and one of the few business media veterans that has been an integral part of promoting, touting and influencing the market for over two decades. This month, Infanger was honored by the Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) at their annual conference for 25 years of service to the aviation community.

"For 25 years, John Infanger has covered the airport and aviation industry with intelligence, integrity and energy," said ACI-NA President Greg Principato. "He will, as good journalists do, ask tough questions and hold people accountable using the facts and their own words. John is thorough and fair, laying out the facts for his readers, shedding light on complex aviation issues. Whether you are an industry insider or lay person, you will be better informed about airports and aviation after reading John's work."

When Infanger began his career with Cygnus Business Media's Airport Business, TWA, Pan Am, Eastern, and Continental were leaders in the airline business. The corporate aviation and fixed base operator sectors were just a fraction of what they are today. Airport infrastructure investment has transformed many of the airports in the U.S. during those two and a half decades. And, the industry has essentially been reformulated in a post-9/11 environment. Today, Infanger leads the content creation covering this dynamic industry, as well as development for all Cygnus' aviation brands and exposition.

"This is a real Wow moment for me," said Infanger,"to be recognized by a core segment of our aviation readers - the men and women who are responsible for the professional management of airports in North America."
