Egypt plans to open a new international airport to service the country’s new capital city. Will the hub relieve pressure on Cairo’s existing airport while re-energising tourism?

Similar questions are being asked in Peru, with a new airport being built in the country’s Sacred Valley of the Incas. However, conservationists worry the construction could damage the world-famous Machu Picchu World Heritage site.

Also in this issue; we look at the £1.1bn investment programme launched by the UK’s Gatwick Airport; assess the impact of stronger regulation over airport charges on European airports, and find out how the Slave-Free Alliance is cracking down on slavery at airports.

Finally, we map out the history of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport and highlight winning futuristic airport designs from the 2019 Fentress Global Challenge.
