February 2015

In the February issue of Airliner World, we mark the retirement of KLM’s last McDonnell Douglas MD-11; ending not only the carrier’s affiliation with the tri-jet, but also a remarkable era in civil aviation. We also profile Indonesia’s leading domestic carrier Lion Air, we find out how Bordeaux/Mérignac is moving to address impending competition from high-speed rail and we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Douglas DC-9.

The latest edition also includes a look at Bristol’s Britannia in service with the iconic independent carrier British Eagle, we visit Turkey’s only floatplane operator Seabird Airlines and we head to Africa to examine how Kinshasa-based flyCAA is establishing itself as the leading carrier in DR Congo. We also speak with London Gatwick’s Chief Commercial Officer, Guy Stephenson about new runways, lack of capacity in South East England, attracting new airlines and the airport’s long-term plans.

The February issue also incorporates our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including details of a new Macedonian flag carrier, latest developments in Ukraine, major orders for Ryanair and Air Asia X, and Airbus discusses the future of the A380 programme. Finally, we have all of our regular sections covering the latest commercial aircraft acquisitions, up-to-date accident reports and developments from the world of aviation training and MROs.
