Drones can pose a huge safety and security risk to airports, with incidents such as the one that took place at Gatwick Airport in 2018 seeing hundreds of flights being cancelled.
In the next issue, we look at Miami International Airport's novel drone detection technology, learning about plans for further development that will enable the disabling of drones entering the airport's airspace.
We also learn out about the newly announced DHL Express all-electric aircraft. The planes, which will be added to the fleet of battery-powered vans and bikes, will be able to carry more than 1,000kg across 440 nautical miles.
As well as all of this, we find out about Thales' new digital access token for passengers to use when checking in to an airport, the feasibility of vertiports in Malaysia, and much more.
In the meantime, you can follow us @Airport_Mag to keep up to date with all the latest news.
