Clearly the aftermath of the French terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday and its impacts on European airports are going to be focus of our review of this week’s airport related news. There were other news this week, but we decided to focus on this one solely.

And again it’s been another week of full airport news related inboxes. This week we received airport news from Peru, Mexico, the United Kingdom, the USA and from Australian and Singaporean airlines.
Every now and then you get a week with a lot of slightly out-of-the-ordinary airport news all coming in at the same time. This has been exactly such a week: We found news from a Swedish retailer moving into airport space, a baby smuggle attempt, a tower evacuation, sinkholes, a refurbished terminal and two emergency landings. Sounds interesting? Told you!
This week we’ve done something different by pairing up the airport news of the week. Before we get into it, we would like to make an announcement of our own: if you’re reading this on LateDeparture, you might have noticed that we changed our site layout quite dramatically. The old layout has seen its days, so we redesigned the whole thing with the aim to make it a lot more user friendly and give you a better experience. Let us know what you think!
