Airports of the World Magazine May-June 2013 Back Issue

English
61 Reviews   •  English   •   Aviation & Transport (Aviation)
This issue of Airports of the World includes a major on the UK’s Birmingham Airport. The Midlands facility is ideally placed to serve a wide catchment, including London. This factor will be even more relevant by 2026 when the HS2 high speed rail link from the capital is due to open. In a separate feature we examine the implications HS2 will have for the UK’s aviation industry.

Further afield the issue covers the many small airports of the Tonga Islands in the southwest Pacific. Despite a recent change of domestic carrier, the ‘Friendly Islands’ as Tonga is widely known, relies on a network of flights for communication. At the opposite end of the earth from our European latitude is the Antarctic. One way to get there is to fly from Cape Town and land on the ice at the Novolazarevskaya Air Base – an extraordinary experience aboard an Ilyushin Il-76.

Back in the UK we report on the opening of the first Airbus A380-capable gate at London’s Gatwick Airport and include a series of black and white photos illustrating London/Heathrow in 1969 and 1970. You also have the chance to win a book covering the story of Mumbai’s airports.

We take an in –depth look at the Milan airport system (Malpensa, Linate and Bergamo) and examine the expansion currently underway at São Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport in Brazil as the nation prepares to host the FIFA World Cup and the Summer Olympics in the next three years.
