Issue 50 | December 2019

Could  ‘powerfuels’ be the key to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in aviation? In the December issue of AIR, we find out whether a blending strategy put forward by Global Alliance Powerfuels – a cross-sector alliance of industry leaders – could help power a greener future.

We also explore IATA’s One ID project, which aims to achieve a truly paperless travel experience for passengers through biometrics, and explore the potential impact of supersonic aircraft on airport operations in the future.

We also take a look at the current status of home baggage collection services and explore the reasons why US airports perform poorly on passenger satisfaction surveys compared to other airports around the world.

Finally, as the clock ticks over into a new year of innovation at airports, we take a closer look at start-ups to watch in 2020.
