The War in Ukraine shows no sign of ending soon, such is the stalwart defence of Ukraine citizens and armed forces against Russia's invasion. In this issue, we look at how one group of Ukrainians are recycling a downed Russian SU-34 into luggage tags to raise money for the defence effort. 

We also hear from Mariana Oleskiv, chairperson at the State Agency for Tourism Development of Ukraine, finding out how the rebuilding of Ukraine's tourism sector is already underway.

Elsewhere, we find out how Jersey Airport on the channel island in the English channel is taking steps towards hydrogen power, as well as learning what happened at this year's Airbus summit. We also take a look at how Qatar, in preparation for the FIFA World Cup 2022, reinforced its aviation infrastructure to withstand the massive influx of visitors to the tiny Gulf state.

As well as all of this, being the final issue of 2022, we also look ahead at what themes will be of most importance to aviation in 2023.

For this, and much more, read on. Don’t forget to follow us @Airport_Mag as well.
