This week, hosts Stephanie Taylor and Seth Miller discuss the “new normal” for airport lounges around the world before chatting to Dwayne Macintosh, director of Corporate Safety and Security at Greater Toronto Airports Authority, about Toronto Pearson’s new “Healthy Airport” commitment and what it means for passengers and airport workers alike.
Also up for discussion are some exciting new designs from students at London’s Royal College of Art, who have been experimenting with luxury sustainable materials for the transport environment as part of a yearly project with PriestmanGoode; PXCom’s In-Cabin Mobility Management (IC2M) software system and how it’s going to reduce passenger movement in the aircraft cabin; and Alaska Airlines’ yellow card initiative to help curb non-mask-wearing passengers.
