Issue 50 | December 2019

In the next issue of AIR, we ask whether passenger profiling still has a place in airport security procedures, or if the potential for discrimination means this contentious practice should be banned.

We also explore whether the rise of populist movements in various countries are having an indirect impact on airports and aviation, and ask experts about how they see the duty-free retail market evolving in 2020.

Also coming up: analysing the biggest sources of stress for passengers at airports; looking back at new initiatives to support disabled passengers in 2019; and how audio-visual technologies are providing an experience to remember at airports.

Finally, we explore why some UK politicians are calling for the abolishment of air passenger duty after Brexit.
