In the May edition of Airliner World don’t miss our exclusive behind the scenes access with the easyJet operations team as they prepare to introduce the Airbus A321neo into the fleet. We’ll hear from key players involved in the project and learn more about the challenges and opportunities related to a new aircraft type.
Elsewhere in the issue, we embark on the first leg of a Trans-Siberian adventure across Russia, visiting Soviet wrecks and relics and taking to the sky onboard more modern models. Also, we’re granted special permission to join the recruits at Virgin Atlantic as they are put through their paces before finally earning their ‘wings’, and we reflect on the enormous logistical feat involved in moving a Boeing 747-400 to its new home at a hotel in the Netherlands.
Other highlights include a comprehensive journey report from Quebec’s remote ‘milk run’ routes, we visit the Middle East to grill the management team at Kuwait Airways and we offer an insight into the growing threat of drones at airports.
Finally, we bring you our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including a new business class product for British Airways, a first look at two of Africa’s newest Airbus widebodies and Rolls-Royce’s UltraFan engine takes a step closer. 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.
