Air Transport Publications Ltd (ATP) brings authoritative and independent coverage to the aviation market through its popular magazines, directories and newsletter.

ATP was founded in 1996 with the Aircraft Maintenance & Engineering Directory. This soon became an indispensible business aid and was joined by the Air Cargo Directory, Airline Directory and Airport Directory. The content from all four directories can be accessed easily online from our ATP Directory.

From these specialist yearbooks grew four quarterly magazines and a monthly newsletter that analyse and report on the developments in their respective sectors. Airline Cargo Management, Low Cost & Regional Airline Business, Aircraft Cabin Management, MRO Management and MRO News Focus are written by established journalists and are respected sources of strategy for senior aviation professionals around the world.

In 2014, ATP added conferences to its ever-growing portfolio. The Aircraft Cabin Maintenance Conference offers informative insight into the design aesthetics and maintenance requirements needed to create a world-class passenger experience. The company also produces the Cabin Refurbishment and Repair Conference, aimed at those working on the maintenance and upkeep of cabin interiors.

Air Transport Publications Ltd was bought by Samedan Ltd in November 2006; they have worked side-by-side as sister companies from the same office in London since January 2007.
