Airport News

Changing travel habits, both for business and pleasure, have led to increased traffic through international and domestic airports across the globe. Airports have faced numerous challenges surrounding increasing passenger volumes, enhanced security requirements and environmental considerations.

These challenges, in turn, have led to airports rapidly evolving and expanding whilst adopting new technologies, expanding terminals, building new runways and developing environmental policies that better align with modern standards and expectations.

This page contains news stories and articles on airports across the globe with details on planned expansion and development as well as new technologies and initiatives to tackle these challenges.

International Airport Development News

On this page you will find articles including planning for redevelopment of major international airports from Al Maktoum to LaGuardia and Singapore to Beijing’s Daxing International Airport. This will include new runways, new terminal buildings and redevelopment of arrival and departure facilities. We will also include articles on the latest airport trends including new security protocols, improved passenger flow through terminal buildings and the introduction of new greener initiatives.

Large international airports are extremely complex, from the computer systems used to coordinate thousands of passengers and hundreds of flights, to the logistics of moving travellers and their luggage through the terminal efficiently.
