Forced deportations are a gruelling reality. In the wake of a recent ITF call to commercial airlines to refuse assisting in forced deportations, we look at what role, if any, airlines should play in these scenarios.

China recently announced it was preparing to build its first permanent airport in the South Pole in order to increase its authority in the airspace and provide logistics support to future scientific expeditions. We find out what challenges are involved with building airports in the area and explore what impact the region’s shifting climate could have.

We also round up some of the most interesting ecological projects currently ongoing at airports around the world, from reviving local wetlands in Sydney, to Dublin Airport's homemade honey.

Finally, we review urgent industry calls to optimise European airspace and look at ways to increase safety in air traffic control by focusing on the human factor behind the operation.
