September/October 2018In the September/October issue of Airports of the World, we visit Muscat International’s spectacular new terminal that manages to retain the style and character of the historical capital of Oman but now meets the high expectations of the modern passenger. We also shine the spotlight on Barcelona’s El Prat airport which has had a difficult relationship with Madrid, but change could be in the air, and we travel to Pamplona, famous for the bull run through the city’s streets, where its airport has suffered from airline failures and mounting regional competition but is now bouncing back. Elsewhere in this edition, we talk to Finavia about the success of their environmental programmes that have resulted in Helsinki Airport becoming carbon neutral, and we hear how Japanese engineers reclaimed land from the sea to build ‘the mother of all offshore airports’. In Europe we look at Luxembourg airport, which boasts an impressive range of destinations and a thriving cargo hub, and we discover how Porto’s Francisco Sá Carneiro airport is opening up the country’s booming north for business and leisure travellers alike. Lastly, we bring you our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including Heathrow expansion facing legal challenges, more investment at Gatwick, Embraer’s new E190-E2 visits London City Airport for the first time, Moscow’s Domodedovo opens the first part of its recently completed Terminal 2 and Emirates launches a daily service to London/Stansted, the carrier’s third link to the British capital. We also have our regular section covering UK visitors as well as the first of a two-part snapshot celebrating the 80th anniversary of Manchester Airport.
