At any one time, there are a million people airborne somewhere in the world. That equates to an entire airborne city – a city in the sky. So what does it take to run a “city” at 30,000 feet?

The series City in the Sky sets off around the world to uncover the invisible global networks and complex logistics that make it all possible. The series premiered on CPTV in February 2017.
