In the October issue of Airliner World, we celebrate the 95th anniversary of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, one of the worlds oldest carriers. We also profile German MRO provider Lufthansa Technik and look back at Hong Kongs iconic Kai Tak airport.
In this edition, we examine how the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine and the recent clashes between Israel and Gaza have brought aviation security to the fore. We also visit XL Airways France, fly with Cincinnati-based Ultimate Jet Charters, examine concepts for future cabin interiors and speak with Iberia Maintenances Technical Director Jose Luis Quirós about the challenges the company is facing.
The latest issue incorporates our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, plus all of our regular sections covering the latest commercial aircraft acquisitions, up-to-date accident reports and developments from the world of aviation training. Finally, this issue also comes with part two of our FREE 40-page Global Airline Guide 2014.
