Airport Industry Review: Issue 6

Naviair and Saab Sensis have teamed up to provide ADS-B coverage across Greenland and the Faroe Islands. We find out how this surveillance technology can help to improve efficiency and situational awareness while reducing emissions in even the most challenging conditions. We also ask how the implementation of SESAR could make airspace ten times safer, and what other fundamental changes are under way.

Moreover, we explore the challenges faced by the UK Department for International Development's project to build an airport on the remote island of Saint Helena, take a look at Dubai International Airport's world-first A380 facility and see what else the airport has in store this year.

We find out how top airports are rising above the crowd by offering state-of-the-art entertainment and leisure attractions, from in-house casinos and breweries to golf courses and museums. We also look at how new education policies and more visible role models are changing the way women are seen in the aviation and aerospace sector.
