Issue 54 | April 2020

In the next issue of AIR, we take a closer look at the impact of coronavirus on airports and ask how new scanning technology can help prevent the spread of diseases worldwide.

We’ll also ask whether airlines’ migration from four-engine aircraft to two-engine aircraft could affect airports in the future, and speak to a roundtable of aviation experts about existing threats to cybersecurity.

Also next time, we take a closer look at pay and conditions for the UK’s baggage handlers, ask whether US sanctions on other countries are disrupting global aviation, and find out whether translation technology – such as Google Assistant’s Interpreter Mode solution being trialled at New York’s JFK Airport – could become more commonplace across the industry.

Finally, we unleash a reporter to speak to the ‘Canine Crew’ at the UK’s Southampton Airport, which aims to put nervous fliers at ease by distributing ‘therapy dogs’ throughout its terminal.
