It feels like the world has changed since I sat down to write the last issue's editorial introduction for OnAir! Back in February, we were still expecting (hoping) to attend World ATM Congress in Madrid; Italy had just announced a regional lockdown; China was into its second week of localised lockdowns. We held our breath, put our heads down and focussed our minds on problem solving.

Five months on, we are emerging, blinking, from a tunnel. The recovery has started, but aviation is still reeling from the impacts that will continue for months and years to come. Exceptional circumstances demand acknowledgement of the situation, adjusted plans and adapted processes.

With that in mind, this edition of ON AIR! features three new and specific services born out of the COVID-19 crisis, designed to help you adjust and adapt:

  • Bio Safety Assessment for Airports & Control Rooms
  • Airport Recovery Management Action Plan (ARMAP)
  • Business Continuity Management for long term Resilience

As we go to press, we celebrate the successful conclusion of our "What about the new possible?" webinar series, three events attended by 500+ people, supported by ACI, IATA, CANSO and ICAO and framed around an initial survey. If you were unable to attend, please visit here to watch the live recordings. Headline statistics from the survey can be found in our ON AIR infographic and are available in full on our website here.

With best wishes
