FlightGlobal is a resource for aviation history with a picture library of over 1 million images starting with the foundation of Flight in 1909. Thousands of images and back copies of Flight are searchable online.[1]

FlightGlobal won the prize for of "Business Website of the Year" at the Association of Online Publishers' Digital Publishing Awards 2010. According to the contest judges, "The site uses the full spectrum of digital tools, with a special focus on engagement and effective use of social media in a B2B [business-to-business] environment".[2]

In August 2019, FlightGlobal and its associated divisions (except analytics and consulting divisions, which were retained by RELX as Cirium) were sold to DVV Media Group.[3]

It also produces multiple daily publications produced and circulated on site at air shows and key industry events globally, including the Paris and Farnborough air shows. In 2019, RELX rebranded Flight Global data and analytics services to Cirium.
