As airports continue to contend with travel restrictions and the implementation of new safety features, we take a closer look at what airports in the UK and Turkey – in particular, Istanbul Airport – are doing to fend off Covid-19.

We find out how the rollout of 5G could lead to a new era of connectivity across terminal operations, explore tech provider Vanderlande’s collaboration with Eindhoven Airport to test its latest autonomous baggage handling solutions, and find out where developments in solar power could drive a renewable future for airport infrastructure.

We also take a deep dive on airport security, with an explainer article on the potential of the ‘open architecture’ concept, and a Q&A with UK-based tech company Revector on how digital signals from mobile phones can be used to detect security threats at airports.
