Issue 55 | May 2020

With the aviation industry crumbling under the weight of financial pressure, we find out whether the suspension on airport slot rules by the International Air Transport Association will have a positive effect on airlines, whose staff are suffering heavily at the hands of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Also in this issue, we ask Women in Aviation International about its vital work to encourage more women to join the industry, and zone in on airport security, with one feature asking whether lie detectors could soon play a role at border control, and another asking why e-gate technology is still leaving much to be desired.

We also find out whether airports should be doing more to encourage better hand hygiene in departure lounges; explore ambitious terminal redevelopment plans for New York’s JFK airport; and highlight the key steps that the UK’s aviation hubs will need to take to make their operations more sustainable.
