Issue 56 | June 2020

With the world still under the thumb of Covid-19, airlines have been forced to ask governments for help to mitigate their devastating losses through cancelled bookings. What measures have been implemented so far, and will they be enough?

Coronavirus is not the first worldwide event to cause catastrophe at airports; we round up similar incidents and ask what key lessons have been learned.

Also in this issue: exploring winter operations at airports, the impact of ridesharing apps such as Uber and Lyft, and a Q&A with French trade association Proavia about the skills that will be required by future airport employees.

Finally, we round-up the weird and wonderful ways that airports are using nature to woo incoming passengers, and find out how wayfinding and signage have evolved in terminals through the years.
