Since the 1990s, friction between Taiwan and China has placed a damper on international airline routes to the country. However, increased tourism and trade opportunities are now causing a sea change, with foreign airlines set to resume services to Taiwan’s Taipei Taoyuan airport. We delve deeper into the issue.

We also find out whether artificial intelligence could signal the end of lost baggage, examine whether India’s aviation industry can respond fast enough to meet rising demand, and profile Munich Airport’s LabCampus, an interdisciplinary idea and innovation centre on the airport grounds.

Finally, we look at how the confined spaces of airports can act as testbeds for autonomous vehicles, talk to Unisys Corporation about its new solution that uses IoT technologies to allow pet owners to monitor their pets while in transit, and look back at some of the major milestones in Gatwick Airport’s history as it celebrates 60 years.
