Why should visitors come to your stand and what can they expect to see?

At ACI Airport Exchange 2019, Honeywell Airports will be showcasing its airside, landside and terminal side solutions. These enable airports, airport operators and other key stakeholders to ensure the safety, security and comfort of passengers, whilst driving for more efficient operations.

Which technology or trend do you think will have the biggest impact on the air transport industry in 2019?

Three key related trends will have the biggest impact on the industry:

– IoT, connecting the quickly emerging ‘smart’ technologies within airports, and driving a more seamless passenger experience
– Machine Learning: to make airports run more efficiently – to make airport staff more effective and efficient. For example, smart airside solutions are being introduced to guide the aircraft in a seamless and most efficient way to meet capacity constraints
– Cybersecurity throughout an airport, which is absolutely critical to be able to keep all the data that runs through an airport safe, private and secure. Maintaining airport’s number one priority of keeping passengers – on the ground, in the air and in the digital world – secure
