Issue 48 | October 2019

France has introduced plans to establish an eco-tax on all flights by 2020. The solution has taken flak from industry stakeholders, but could other countries follow suit?

Meanwhile, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has warned that governments must take a more harmonised approach to airport slot allocation, reigniting concerns around capacity in the face of ever-growing demand.

Also in this issue: a closer look at early design proposals for Poland’s new CPK airport, set to open with an annual passenger capacity of 45 million in 2027; a round-up of the latest innovations helping airports prepare for adverse winter conditions; and why has the aviation sector fallen behind on cybersecurity?

Finally, we investigate the dangerous lives of stowaways, after a shocking incident earlier this year in which a person fell hundreds of feet from a passenger jet flying inbound to the UK.
