Gareth Lawton, Gatwick’s Innovation Folio Manager, joins Airport A&I 2020

“The last decade has seen highly performant airports like Gatwick introduce innovations that have boosted safety, efficiency and passenger experience. Technologies like computer vision and applications of AI are now widespread across the industry and this is only likely to accelerate. 

Whilst this is a very positive story, it is clear to me that fragmentation of airport ecosystems is holding back progress. What excites me most about the next decade is the opportunity to use modern tools and techniques to bring these performant but isolated areas together into the airport ecosystem of the future. At Gatwick, we have taken steps in this direction by developing platforms that integrate functions from across the airport campus.”

Gareth has been delivering aviation innovations for eighteen years, first for ANSPs including NATS and EUROCONTROL and more recently for airports. As Gatwick’s Innovation Portfolio Manager, he manages a team of innovation experts responsible for the delivery of the company’s innovation strategy. The team takes 26 projects a year from initiation to implementation, bringing change to all areas of the business from airfield operations, to passenger experience and new retail concepts.
