In the August issue of Airliner World, we find out how Thomas Cook Airlines has emerged from a turbulent and uncertain period leaner, fitter and better suited to meet the changing demands of the market. We also hear how bmi regional is striving in a sector dominated by continental powerhouses, and we put Britten-Norman’s iconic Islander through its paces.
Elsewhere in this issue, we shine the spotlight on British Aerospace’s turboprop programmes, we find out how smart cabin design is playing an increasingly important role in today’s airline industry, and we examine UPS Airlines’ innovative cockpit upgrade programme that will keep its Airbus A300 fleet current for the next two decades. We also catch football fever at Cardiff, and we run the rule over the latest flight simulation product from the PMDG stable – the Boeing 747-400 Queen of the Skies II.
Lastly, we bring you our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including a comprehensive report on the Paris Air Show, details of a new deal between UK regionals Flybe and Eastern Airways, Titan Airways receives its maiden Airbus A318 and Qatar Airways soldiers on despite a diplomatic crisis, plus easyJet takes delivery of its first A320neo. We also have all our regular sections covering the latest commercial aircraft acquisitions, up-to-date accident reports and developments from the world of aviation training and MROs, and we give you the chance to win a year’s subscription in our caption competition.
