Issue 58 | August 2020
What are ‘frangible’ structures, and why are they so important for runway safety at airports? We answer this question and many more in the next issue of AIR.
Next time, we explore the debacle over passenger refunds. Has confusion during the pandemic implicated a need for more clarity and standardisation over the way that airlines handle refunds in the future? We also speak to interior designers about the ways that Covid-19 could fundamentally change airport design, and investigate technology that could be used to more seamless throughput at terminals.
We take a closer look at the frontrunners for Skytrax’s prestigious World Airport Awards, find out more about the sustainable ‘taxibots’ being deployed to cut idle fuel consumption at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, and ask tech innovators Carlisle Interconnect Technologies about how to make passenger aircraft more cargo friendly.
