As the new year dawns, a new US president is set to be inaugurated – but what will be the implications of this be for airports? After gauging reaction in this issue, we launch a deeper exploration of what Biden’s victory will mean for US aviation.
We also find out more about the actual transmission rates of Covid-19 on board flights and find out more about the meal trends returning passengers might be interested in seeing in 2021. Also in this issue, we speak to CargoAI about how technology can optimise the air freight industry, which will hopefully continue to recover in 2021.
In a regional focus feature, we discuss how the pandemic has affected airports in Iceland, and in a separate article ask why the concept of remote air traffic control has picked up traction in some countries but has seen less enthusiasm elsewhere.
