Airport Industry Review: Issue 13

Issue 13

The possibility of commercial drones presents vast opportunities for business, yet is a significant risk for air traffic control. We find out how the industry can address these challenges. In the latest issue of AIR, we also investigate screening procedures at UK hubs after airports were on high alert after the recent Ebola scare.

We also profile the passenger services team at Heathrow Airport as they try to ease flyers on their journeys, but in the era of technology we ask whether the human touch has become outdated, in addition to taking a look at the European Investment Bank and their history of investing in critical airport infrastructure projects.

Moreover, we speak to Quintiq about their involvement in the aviation industry and how they can improve efficiencies whilst reducing costs, and discover the environmental changes that are happening in Dayton, US.
