As travellers return to the skies in large numbers for the first time in over two years, how is the aviation industry coping with the influx of passengers? Are the delays plaguing some of the world’s busiest airports here to stay? And can the travel and aviation industries thrive amidst soaring inflation and record fuel prices?

In this episode of the Made by McGill alumni webcast, we sit down with the McGill graduate running one of Canada’s busiest airports, and a professor considered to be among the country’s leading aviation experts to explore the current state of global aviation and what this means for travellers heading out on vacation this summer.
