Issue 49 | November 2019
In the next issue of AIR, we track the progress of two major airport projects on different sides of the world. Firstly, we explore the controversy surrounding a new multi-billion dollar international airport being built near the Incan citadel of Machu Picchu in Peru. Secondly, Egypt is nearly set to open the all-new Capitol International Airport, east of Cairo. Will the new aviation hub solidify the country as an effective gateway between Africa and the Middle East?
Also, in the wake of a major IT glitch which left British Airways customers stranded, we take a look at essential IT systems across airports - from check-in to baggage to air traffic control - and ask how technology is helping to prevent critical outages in the future.
We also analyse Gatwick’s sprawling £1.1bn investment plan; track major milestones across the 60-year life of Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport; and showcase the highlights of the Fentress Global Challenge, which asked aspiring architects to predict what airports could look like in the year 2075.
