100 Knots Magazine May 2023

Welcome to the June 2023 issue of the 100 Knots Magazine.

It is with a sense of urgency and responsibility that we dedicate this issue of our magazine to shed light on the disturbing reality of human trafficking by aviation. As one of the most pressing global issues of our time, human trafficking not only violates the fundamental rights of individuals but also undermines the very fabric of our society. We firmly believe that aviation can play a pivotal role in fighting this heinous crime and ensuring a safer world for all.

Aviation, with its unparalleled reach and speed, has transformed the way we connect with each other and explore the world. However, it is disheartening to acknowledge that traffickers exploit these same capabilities for their nefarious purposes, using airlines and airports as conduits for their illegal activities. The illicit transportation of men, women, and children across borders under the guise of legitimate travel is an appalling violation of human rights, and it demands our unwavering attention.

Our aim is to create awareness, generate dialogue, and advocate for change. Human trafficking can only be effectively combated through collaborative efforts involving governments, aviation industry stakeholders, law enforcement agencies, NGOs, and the public at large.

As always, Contributions, comments, and feedback are always welcome. All papers are received with a high degree of enthusiasm and will find a home in future issues.

Our sincere thanks to all the contributors for their support and interest.

We hope to hear from you soon! 

Happy Reading!
