Issue 43 | May 2019

India’s civil aviation ministry recently released its ‘Vision 2040’ document, which sets out plans to have two airports in 31 major cities, resulting in 200 airports serving the country by 2040. But just how will such capacity be achieved? We look into India’s grand plans for air travel.

Late January 2019 brought an icy polar vortex to the US, sweeping across the Midwest and Northeast and crippling flight schedules across the region. In this map feature, AIR lays out the most devastating impacts of this frigid weather pattern on airports nationwide.

For those with time to kill, or of a nervous disposition, we set out to find out whether it is possible to find a place to sleep, or at least get some peace and quiet in the famously hectic envrionemtn of an airport. 

And finally, to discuss the security landscape in more detail, we spoke to Stephen Cooper OBE, the director of operational solutions at Apstec Systems.
