Airbnb Is Releasing Its First Travel Mag
The home rental platform is heading to print.
Airbnb has been the biggest disrupter on the travel market and it's now making it's way to your local newsstand. The rental platform is teaming up with Hearst Magazines to publish its first ever print publication that will offer an insider’s view of global destinations echoing the spirit and reach of the brand.
“Travelers around the world are constantly looking for new inspiration and insight - whether to uncover hidden gems and discover unique destinations or plan for their next trip,” said Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky. “Our community will provide the perfect lens for readers of Airbnbmag to discover the world, learn about new neighborhoods and hear great stories.”
Joanna Coles, Hearst Magazine's chief content officer, adds, “Airbnb is changing the way we travel, the way we connect, and the way we see the world. People want to be adventurers, explorers and locals, not tourists. Airbnb is at the leading edge of travel and Airbnbmag is the future of travel media.”
With contributing articles from astronaut Mark Kelly and Elon Musk, founder of Space X and Tesla, on space travel to Issa Rae, star of HBO’s Insecure, on travel inspiration, the new mag is definitely going to show up on our coffee tables once it hits the stands on May 23.
