Found this on-line somewhere:

A representative for A&E says the current theme song is called "Closer to You (37,000 Feet)," was composed by Mike Palmer especially for the series. It cannot be purchased anywhere.

The former theme song was the John Denver-penned "Leaving on a Jet Plane." (Slate once questioned the song's choice as a theme song by pointing out Denver died in a plane crash, though it was an experimental small plane, not a jet.) The peppy version of the song that "Airline" used was recorded by singer Jimmy Coup. You can't buy that song anywhere, either, but you can check out Coup's Web site for more on the singer himself. —G.F.C.

I didn't know they had a new one.

Actually the most famous version of the complete song, as written by John Denver, was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary in 1969. It is still available in one of their albums.

Yeah, the Us version was different.

The 'Airport' song I suspect was composed for the BBC. I know the BBC sometimes release their theme music on CD, it might be worth checking Amazon or a similar site to see if you can pick it up.
