Welcome to the new tabloid format of Airside International. With more news, more product information and further industry reach, we hope you will find this new approach to delivering your airside news much more satisfying. In this issue, apart from the news, we tackle the thorny issue of airside safety. Thomas Romig, Safety Officer at Genève Aéroport, says that it always pays to put in place procedures to ensure preparedness for emergency situations. Another Thomas – this time Thomas Steckel – says that Frankfurt Airport is growing through joint action with its suppliers. We find out more. Both Budapest Airport and Airport Sliacˇ in the Slovak Republic are undergoing a transformation and we report on them too. North Hub Services is our GSE buyer in this issue and Bayanat Airports Engineering and Supplies talks us through the way in which it is approaching strategic partnerships. We also find out more about heating aircraft hangars and aircraft recovery. We hope the tabloid approach to reporting on GSE, airfield equipment and infrastructure proves to be highly agreeable.
