Thanks for joining us for another news roundup!
In our first story, London Gatwick Airport is set to deploy an innovative new digital ‘AirTurn’ platform. The technology will level up air traffic controllers’ efficiency and help reduce delays.
Thankfully, there are continued signs of recovery in the air traffic sector. As an example, Frankfurt Airport recorded 100.8 percent year-on-year improvement in February. They totaled 22,328 takeoffs and landings.
There are also positive numbers coming in from Norway. Compared with February 2021, Oslo achieved a 112.1 percent increase, and Trondenheim Airport saw a 53.9 percent increase. For Bergen airport, there was a 31.8 percent increase and for Stavanger airport there was a 23.1 percent increase. It's heartening to see the recovery continuing.
We also have a story from the world of research and development. SkyGrid will partner with SparkCognition and LIFT Aircraft to supply AI and blockchain technology to manage the airspace for autonomous vehicles. They will focus specifically on HEXA which is LIFT's electric VTOL aircraft.
