The new issue of Airport Industry Review is out now!

Just 4.9% of aviation positions in 2021 were staffed by women, and though that number is an increase on previous years, it’s still a shameful minority. In our cover story, we look at aviation’s gender equality problem and find out what the industry can do in the future to address the balance.

Whether you are on an iPad, desktop or smartphone, you can read the magazine for free online.

The climate breakdown is becoming increasingly prevalent across global news, and though the aviation sector has been looking at ways to improve its environmental credentials, rapid progress is required. We look into whether sustainable aviation is really possible, and how emissions reductions will affect future demand for aviation fuels.

Elsewhere, we hear how aircraft electrification will unlock the potential of small airports and potentially transform rural airports into renewable energy hubs, and find out how one drone developer has been contributing to the humanitarian effort in Ukraine.

For this, and much more, read on. And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @Airport_Mag as well.
