From 12-21 March 2021, join us on a 10 day API-focused hackathon to help transform the air transport industry! For this Hackathon, participants will form teams and work on creating prototypes that fall in one of the below categories:
- Passenger Experience – with changing priorities of air travel passengers, the industry constantly needs to introduce new solutions and services that will improve the passenger experience and make them feel more at ease while flying.
- Cargo & Baggage – COVID has sped up the adoption of digital technologies in cargo and baggage by several years. What out of the box solutions can we further create to boost the digitalization efforts in these areas? Potential areas could be vaccine logistics, sustainability, cost reduction and tracing.
- Airport of the Future – with the ever-changing transportation realm and with airports offering an array of services and retail options, we’re excited to see what participants envision will stay or become a part of the future traveler’s journey.
- AI & Data (Open challenge) – this is an open challenge where we’d like to see participants creativity and innovation while using the APIs and data sets that are available to them.
The Hackathon will be hosted virtually and residents from across Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, Africa and Turkey are eligible to participate. Winners will receive monetary prizes, access to our APIs and support and mentorship from the SITA Team to further build and develop their products.
