Next issue

April 2021

Almost 20 years ago, 9/11 caused a global shift in airport operations worldwide. Will the Covid-19 pandemic do the same? In the next issue of AIR, we examine whether creating more streamlined airports to welcome passengers back could create new security issues. Can airports effectively balance the two?

We also debate the pros and cons of mandatory vaccinations for flights and take a look at the knock-on effect of Covid-19 on drug smuggles relying on aviation. Also: will the pandemic clear the field for a suite of airline start-ups in 2021?

We examine whether physical passports could become a thing of the past in an increasingly digital era, and explore how technology and automation could revolutionise airside operations, from baggage handling to air traffic control.

Finally, we cast an eye over the weird and wonderful stories of ‘terminal dwellers’ – people who spent part of their lives living in airports worldwide.
