Issue 45 | July 2019

In this new issue of AIR, we explore the construction project behind Beijing Daxing, the Chinese capital's second international airport, which has been designed to accommodate 100 million fliers by 2040.

In a special feature, we highlight where shortages in aviation and aircraft employees are affecting operations. Then, we ask the authors of a new handbook on ‘insider threats’ about the damage that rogue staff members can cause at airports.

Also in this issue, we explore how a partnership between F1 behemoth McLaren and Deloitte has produced technology capable of predicting thousands of airport scenarios every second.

Finally, we explore the potential of merging video games with aviation, and round up some of the major themes from this year’s NEC Future of Airports event.
