Appearances:



Aviation Festival - Day 2 @ 11:20

Technology & Strategy Roundtables


With rising passenger expectations and rapidly-changing technology, how can we as an industry evolve to meet these challenges? Our roundtables are hosted by senior level topic specialists. Participants are asked to introduce themselves to the table, and then as a group, they brainstorm and produce their suggestions on what technology would work best for them. After 30 minutes, there is one rotation, so participants can join two tables during the session.
 

Now that nearly half (43%) of all available seat miles (ASM) worldwide offer at least a chance of Wi-Fi what are the connectivity requirements and best practices that the industry should be offering airlines and their passengers?

Aviation Festival - Day 2 @ 12:45

CONNECTIVITY PANEL DISCUSSION: Taking in-flight entertainment to the next level - What are the next steps in commercialising connectivity and driving better passenger experiences?

  • Has the right business case been proven for various airline models and are we close to seeing a return on investment?
  •  As BYOD becomes more prominent will there be more focus on content over equipment?
