Themes & Topics

Multimodal Excellence

Multimodal Excellence

Multi-modal excellence: Achieving is not easy

  • – Streamlined connectivity between multiple transport modes is tough.
  • – From rideshare, taxis, rail, bus and private cars through to emerging UAM modes, we talk to entities achieving multi-model hubbing excellence.
  • – Examine planning, financing and strategic challenges and how they’ve been overcome.

Automation of air cargo 

  • – There are still too many labour touchpoints and paper interventions.
  • – When will digitisation and automation take over, especially in on-the-ground load devices – and what are the barriers, including investment?   

Examining the future commercial viability of air cargo

  • – Air cargo is the most carbon-intensive of all cargo modes, so what does the future bring and will the needed investment be forthcoming?

Terminal Security & Facilitation

Understanding/mitigating risk of cybersecurity threats

  • – Airlines and airports have dated IT systems, having underinvested for decades. As a result the operational, commercial threats are real.
  • – Passenger data are vulnerable, so what is being done to mitigate the risks?

Harmonising border crossings

  • – There is little uniformity at border crossings around screening security procedures.
  • – What are the future ideas of leading border security agencies around passenger and baggage screening procedures?
  • – Experts on border regulation discuss the digitalisation of admissibility and pre-clearance using digital identity and removing the need for the airline to broker pax data.

Terminal Passenger Experience & Innovation

Fast(er) travel. The technology and collaboration enabling seamless experiences

– The growth of airport biometrics and One ID implementations are streamlining passenger processing at airports and ports around the world. Arrival-at-gate tech is changing the game.
– W
e explore the technologies and data-sharing collaboration between airports, airlines and border control to enable vast improvements in this area.
– But also ask what are the associated downstream implications for retail and the commercial development of airports?
– Leaders share their experiences around biometrics and digital identity trials and implementations.

How emerging technology and AI can improve the passenger experience, accessibility and inclusion

– There is little uniformity at border crossings around screening security procedures.
-AI and emerging tech has the potential to radically improve the terminal way-finding, accessibility and inclusion over the long run, ultimately improving the passenger experience.

The Jewel in the crown: Airports offering unique experiences will be the winners

– Increasingly airports are offering attractions and experiences that are engaging and drawcards for passengers and locals.
– At its heart, they build non-aeronautical revenues, but these offerings, like Singapore’s Jewel, can quickly become the soul of the airport destination too.
– Every progressive airport could develop their own crowing destination attraction, but…what are the elements in getting it right?
– It starts with bag drop… How far could/should airports go before they lose their raison d’être for being an airport?
– What is a realistic airport experience?

Future Terminals & Sustainability

Strategies, cost/benefit of decarbonising an existing airport city

  • – Many major airports around the world that have committed to fighting climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency measures and better design.

– Overcoming the challenges of airport decarbonisation and the role of airport carbon accreditation and certification as solutions. Practical steps to achieving carbon-neutral
status faster.

Building a sustainable airport terminal

  • – Explore decarbonization strategies and best practices that are being incorporated into the design of new sustainable passenger terminals with reference to the ADRM Sustainability guidance.

Advanced Air Mobility

Next-gen aircraft – implications for airports

  • – The next generation of Electric/UAM and Hydrogen-powered aircraft will change the way airports function around the globe, impacting short-haul and medium/long-haul sectors and the facilities that serve them. Is AAM an opportunity or threat to airports?
  • The near-term transition to Hybrid (SAF/traditional) blends is also creating new demands on supply and storage. Hear the latest trends in planning, design and operations as leading airports transition.

UAM, Airports & Airspace – threat or opportunity?

  • Should airports see UAM as a threat to their route structures, passenger and cargo bases?
  • – Investigate how other sub-sectors are embracing it as a huge opportunity to diversify their passenger and cargo markets and become an integral part of this emerging trend.
  • – UAM is raising questions around flight paths and controlled air space – how are leading agencies helping to prepare for flight in 2025/26?

UAM success drivers – what do the manufacturers want and what do the operators need?

  • Bringing together regulators, manufacturers and operators in the UAM space can deliver surprising insights into how the sector will evolve.
  • – What regulatory and tech barriers need to be overcome, according to the manufacturers?
  • – What are operators looking for from their vertiport partners?
