This issue of Airside International is another big one, as we not only include our usual range of news pieces and feature articles but also take a look back at the busy and successful inter airport Europe show held in Munich in October. The Airside International team was at inter airport in numbers and this issue begins with our take on the best of the news from the exhibition. That is closely followed by a quick look at the latest developments at Seletar International Airport and Alaska Airlines. Another feature article analyses the various GSE that exists today for the handling of passengers with reduced mobility (PRM), and we talk to just some of the airport operators that place so much emphasis on looking after these more vulnerable visitors to their gateways. This December issue of Airside also includes an analysis of the airfield lighting sector and two pieces that discuss GSE usage in the Africa/Middle East region, as well as articles on the evolving world of hangar design, runway friction testing equipment, GSE parts provision and a review of recent tests at Frankfurt on ‘Go Green’ taxiway lighting possibilities. We finish, as usual, with ‘Airside update’, our round-up of the news since our last issue. I hope you enjoy the issue and find plenty here of interest.
