Issue 33 | July 2018
A wave of ultra-long haul routes between distant airports have entered the market this year, offering travellers non-stop flights in aircraft configured especially for flying times of over 17 hours, including a new route from Houston, US to Sydney, Australia. Given that ultra-long haul routes were phased out in the past due to lack of passenger demand and unsustainable fuel costs, we find out what’s changed.
We also round up the airports that are pushing the boundaries of luxury entertainment into the virtual realm, learn more about Heathrow Airport’s sustainability agenda following warnings that a new runway could turn the airport into the UK’s largest source of carbon emissions, and ask whether airports should be doing more to help stranded migrants.
Finally, we find out whether Detroit Airport has a future after the city turned down a $4m offer from private investors to build a modern terminal and hangars at the site, and explore the world’s busiest airports – which handled 1.5 billion passengers last year – in a special map feature.
