The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter to cover air travel.
We are looking for someone who can ferret out smart, useful stories on all things that matter to passengers, from prices and fees to food, security and space. While envisioned as a consumer-focused beat, the job will demand intrepid reporting into airlines’ policies and the reasons behind them.
We are looking for someone who will source aggressively and generate both scoops and enterprise. Though we envision the beat will focus primarily on airlines, we expect the reporter will also explore other areas of travel such as hotels and rental car services.
The reporter will be expected to work closely with our airlines industry reporter and deliver as a team as demands warrant. We are also looking for someone who can think creatively about the best way to tell stories for our digital audience.
The successful candidate doesn’t need previous experience covering aviation but must be eager to learn the beat quickly.
