I bet you expected us to write about the Airline Interiors Expo in Hamburg didn’t you? Ok, you’d be partially correct — we are going to touch on that subject. That’s not our big news though.

The big news — for us anyway — is that we’re launching a redesigned website and e-mail newsletter as part of our coverage of AIX 2009. This redesign is intended to be much more user friendly for you the reader, while at the same time providing us with the flexibility to post news and other information much more frequently.

The new software underlying our site will also allow us to add new features when we want to and enhance our ability to cover special events. You’ll find an example of that in our AIX Blog that is now available. In this section we’ll be posting occasional updates directly from Hamburg to give you a “behind-the-scenes” look at our team’s adventures in Germany.

Keep an eye on the new website and your e-mail inbox if you’re an IFExpress subscriber, we may have a few suprises in store for you as the week progresses. We’ll give you one little hint… think bluetooth.
