747-8 and the airport

Issue 6 2012  •  7 December 2012  •  Karen Dix-Colony, Lead Engineer, Product Department, Boeing Airport Technology

Airport Council International’s (ACI) recent announcement that year-onyear passenger traffic has grown by five per cent has, for now, caused some optimism within the industry. Unfortunately, such news is rare as the ongoing economic uncertainties continue to plague passenger numbers in Europe and North America.However, one of the aviation industry’s many strengths is collaboration. Associations, suppliers, airlines and airports are constantly pushing the boundaries, even in times of financial downturn. It is encouraging therefore, to hear about the historical and essential alliance formed between airports and two of the world’s major aircraft manufacturers; Airbus and Boeing.Earlier in 2012, International Airport Review (issue 3 2012) explored the collaboration between Airbus’ A380 and the airports’ acceptance of the aircraft. In this editorial we look at the integration of Boeing’s 747-8 wide-body jet airliner into the airport community with invaluable comment from Karen Dix-Colony, Lead Engineer of Product Development at the Boeing Airport Technology Group and a key figure in the aircraft’s successful development and integration within airports.
