Travel + Luxury to increase frequency to 6 issues per year

News Corp Australia today said its magazine Travel + Luxury is increasing in frequency, moving from a quarterly to a bimonthly from January 2022.

The announcement:

The magazine launched in The Australian earlier this year, is designed for a curious and affluent audience in search of travel news, products and adventure, and features a line-up of travel writers, photographers and luxury experts.

Travel + Luxury is supported by a mix of luxury and travel brands with a strong client roster that includes Louis Vuitton, Rolex, Omega, Space, Poliform, Hermes, Tiffany & Co, Cartier, Scenic, Captain’s Choice, Jaguar Land Rover and Tourism Australia.

The Australian’s editor-in-chief, Christopher Dore, said: “The Australian’s Travel + Luxury is creating world-class travel content that inspires our audience who love travelling and we look forward to taking our readers on even more incredible journeys with extra issues next year.”

News Corp Australia’s editorial director of Premium Food and Travel, Kerrie McCallum, said that despite launching in an unprecedented year for travel, Travel + Luxury had been well received by consumers and the industry, exceeding all budgets and targets across both print and digital.

“We’re moving from four to six issues because the market demand for a luxury magazine through the lens of travel is stronger than ever before. People are dreaming of the time that travel will be a reality again and are seeking inspiration and visual stimulation,” McCallum said.

“The world is in flux, but one thing is certain: our desire to travel never dissipates. As the post-pandemic era gradually takes shape, it’s apparent that discerning travellers are seeking more meaningful experiences than ever before. Making the most of local sights, planning ambitious itineraries and a longing for immersion, seclusion and connection are among the leading trends.”

News Corp Australia’s managing director, Food and Travel Fiona Nilsson, said: “The expansion of our travel portfolio is evidence of our confidence in this sector moving towards recovery as we head into 2022. It also underscores our unwavering commitment to and investment in the travel category.”

Issue three of Travel + Luxury is available in The Australian today with a special feature paying tribute to the Travel Titans who have transformed luxury travel here and abroad. From tourism pioneers to eco-advocates, these innovators are the industry’s leading lights.

The Australian launched Travel + Luxury in March 2021 as a quarterly 116-page glossy magazine. Today it is the ultimate network for prestige travel with a content vertical on theaustralian.com.au, weekly section in The Weekend Australian as well as travel sections in delicious., Vogue Australia and Vogue Living.
