How can airports give passengers peace of mind when they return to travel? In the next issue of AIR, we speak to renowned airport ranker Skytrax about the criteria behind its Covid-19 Safety Ratings for Airlines and Airports.
We also dissect what happened on the hapless journey to construct Germany’s long-awaited Berlin Brandenburg Airport, while saying a fond farewell to Tegel Airport after its years of service. Continuing the theme of this edition, we examine an Austrian project to create a 3D visualisation system that could make life easier for ATC staff, and ask how (and why) California-based tech firm Koniku is aiming to capture the skills of sniffer dogs in a security robot.
Finally we profile the winners of the esteemed 2020 Fentress Global Challenge, which attracted thousands of entries depicting airports of the future.
