Issue 36 | October 2018

A new study into shopper behaviour revealed that parents travelling with children have significantly higher footfall, penetration and conversion rates than other travellers. We ask how airports can factor a younger demographic into their design and services, and whether there is a commercial payoff to this.

We also take a close look at JFK’s brand new winter storm plan, released after the airport struggled to recover from a serious storm at the start of this year.

We profile the ambitious plans for growth of the Israeli resort of Eilat ahead of the official opening of its first international airport in 2019, while also putting Heathrow’s third runway plans under the microscope to better understand what’s next for this crucial project.

Finally, we talk to Air BP's technical services director Justin Walker about the company's patented new airfield automation technology and ask whether airports should have their own microgrids to help them prevent disaster.
