Welcome to the Winter 2018 edition of Airline Routes & Ground Services.
This issue went to press against a backdrop of continuing Brexit discussions. Aviation has been on the agenda for UK and European politicians of late; how will current models of air travel and trade have to be adapted once Britain leaves the EU?
In light of the challenges of increasingly protectionist policies, combined with ever-increasing passenger numbers, our technology feature this Winter looks at changes in the way airports are dealing with border control.
We launched our Networking Summit in London on 19-21 September, bringing executives from ground handlers and airlines together in what proved to be a fruitful event by all accounts. Read a round-up of the opening plenary session, which got the summit off to a lively start.
We hope you enjoy the issue.
