As governments face pressure to pursue renewable energy sources, demand for wind power will likely increase. We speak to the UK’s air navigation service provider NATS and trade association RenewableUK to find out why this may affect air traffic control operations, and how collaboration will help mitigate this.

We also speak to ACI World director of economics Patrick Lucas about airport's next steps to Covid-19 recovery, discover how airports and airlines have helped with relief efforts, and ask whether the pandemic will prompt a ‘reset’ in the industry’s approach to sustainability. 

Finally, we speak to aerospace manufacturer North American Aerospace Industries Corporation about the issue of overcrowding in aircraft ‘boneyards’ in the US, and find out how blockchain could lead to massive cost savings in the air cargo sector.
