Welcome to the Spring 2017 issue of Airside International. It’s been another few months of turbulence in the world of geopolitics, accompanied as ever by economic flux, all of which has its bearing on the aviation and – consequently – the airside industries. But one thing that is completely predictable is that the industry continues to grow, in size and complexity. Making sense of that is just part of what Airside International is all about.
The printed and digital issues of the magazine are in a new A4 format that will display our content in what we believe will be an even better way. Any feedback on the new format would be welcomed.
We hope you enjoy the issue.
