A connected future

A new connected era beckons. As an industry, we need to take full advantage of the opportunities.

Speaker

Toward the 'joined up' journey

The fact that so many of us are connected on our travels has given rise to the phenomenon of the ‘digital or connected traveler’.

Added to that, we’re seeing great potential for stakeholders in the industry’s complex ecosystem to interact and interoperate like never before – on the ground and in the air, be it in the cabin or the cockpit.

As we ‘connect the dots’ in air transport, we’ll create great opportunities to ease the journey’s pain points and radically change industry operations.
