Dear Members and friends,

We welcome you to our newsletter this week, marking some important news and milestones from the world of regions and airports. 

First off, we look at the changing patterns in the travel destinations of the young generation and their increased propensity for travel nowadays. Also, a group of engineers and designers came up with a,n air purifying bike thay may be the answer to exhaust fumes on roadways in cities.

Moreover, in this issue of Regions and Airports we look at the continuation of development for Middle Eastern Air Carriers, with Etihad bound to buy almost half of Alitalia by the end of the year, at the same time with all UAE airports posting increased traffic.
This and much more in this issue of the ARC’s Regions and Airports.

We hope you will enjoy it and feel free to send us your feedback at 

Have a pleasant reading

Yours, The ARC Secretariat
