Issue 44 | June 2019

In this issue, we ask whether trade, tourism and employment opportunities created by the aviation sector are having a positive impact on impoverished communities worldwide.

With human trafficking still a major problem, we explore the behaviours that airport staff should look for in potential victims, as well as the key points of ACI's new Combatting Human Trafficking Handbook.

Also in this issue; could conveyor belt systems traditionally used for baggage handling be replaced by fully autonomous vehicles? Dutch automation specialist Vanderlande aims to find out, having begun a new trial of its FLEET system at Hong Kong Airport.

Finally, we take a look at a new sports app offering in-flight exercise tutorials and give our five takeaways from London’s massive Passenger Terminal Expo event.
