Issue 40 | February 2019

Towards the beginning of last year, we covered Turkey's Istanbul New Aiport, the city’s new destination for commercial flights and ultimately, the world’s biggest airport. However its inauguration in autumn was marred by a bitter dispute over workers' rights during the arduous contrustion project. We go back to investigate the alleged human rights violations that might have taken place on site. 

In the UK, we look at the role social media can play in an aviation crisis, in light of Gatwick's recent troubles, and round up five exciting airport designs for the future, recently exhibited at the Venice Biennale.

Finally, plummeting satisfation rates among New York's airport passengers make us ask: why exactly are the city’s airports so bad? And of course, the subpar experience of these passengers comes in contrast with many other airports which are now incorporating apps and niche services to sell the ‘VIP experience’ to a wider range of customers.
