Busy operators and airports need support 12th December 2014

As if there was ever any doubt about the complexity of aviation operations, the challenges facing operators and airports alike are perfectly illustrated in a composite photo taken by a resident living near New York’s LaGuardia airport. In the space of one hour, Paul Ker counted nearly 40 jets cruising in to land between 1pm and 2pm – that’s one every 90 seconds. Granted, LaGuardia isn’t exactly a small…

Planning for the long haul 21st November 2014

Good news this week with some optimistic plans for Cardiff Airport, aiming to turn the regional airport into a trans-Atlantic connection point. It’s a timely discussion. Without wanting to delve too deeply into politics, if there’s one thing we’ve learned over the last few months, it’s that there’s a genuine desire in different parts of the country to assert themselves while London takes the stage.

Learning from mistakes 13th February 2014

The current flooding crisis has led to some of those involved to start playing the blame game. In fact David Cameron is reported to have told cabinet ministers to stop pointing fingers at the Environment Agency; inevitably, his opposite number has waded in and has himself pointed a finger at the blame game players on the other side of the House. While it is understandable for members of the public…
