How can we as an industry mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 and work together to restart the industry?
Join us on Thursday, 22 October at 13:00 to hear from Siemens Smart Infrastructure Airports expert, Duncan Hand, regarding how improving operational efficiency can reduce costs whilst giving passengers the reassurance of being in a safe environment.
By the end of this webinar you will have gained an insight into:
- The operational issues impacting the industry as a result of Covid-19
- How these risks could be mitigated
- What the ‘New Normal’ for the sector may look like
In the last 15 years, we have witnessed the disruption of many industries. The hotel industry by Airbnb, transportation by Uber and retail by Amazon. The airport industry has now been disrupted by a virus
What makes the disruption of the airport industry unique is its speed and scale. Within two months we have seen a near total shutdown of airports around the world. According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), international passenger capacity fell by 33% over two months and airlines have already suffered exponential losses in the first half of 2020. This creates a massive challenge for airport owners and operators. But within this chaos comes a chance to develop greater efficiencies and explore new opportunities and ways of thinking.
While airports have started operating over the last few months, it has only been at a fraction of what they would normally be, so let’s take this opportunity to work together to give passengers that confidence once again and make those operational efficiencies to ensure the future of this incredible industry.
