Issue 39 | January 2019

The issue of treating transgender travellers with dignity at airport security has reared its head several times in the last few years, with a series of humiliating or distressing experiences for passengers unfolding during security checks. We look at the training and management needed to redress this injustice. 

After Shannon Airport was named 'Airport of the Year' by an airline association, we stop to ask: what do airlines require from an airport? 

We also catch up with NATS' first in-house sustainability programme in the world, and find out how AI can help speed up airport security. 

Finally, we look at the growing role hydrogen is playing in the aviation space after fuel cell specialist HES Energy Systems released plans for the world’s first regional hydrogen-electric passenger aircraft, with a prototype expected for take-off by 2025.
