Issue 30 | April 2018
The UK Government is proposing to impose civil penalties of up to £50,000 on airports and airlines that misdirect passengers, helping to strengthen border control. However, the Airport Operators Association argues the number of misdirected passengers is low and the penalties would be disproportionate. We check in on this border security debate.
We also take a closer look at Heathrow Airport’s new environmental tax, find out more about a project using blockchain to store flight information and use smart contracts to judge conflicting data in the aviation industry, and tour the cream of the crop in airport lounge facilities.
Finally, we consider the impact of a new regulation to end 24-hour alcohol consumption in the UK’s airports, and find out more about the role of airports in humanitarian logistics.
