IAG’s Below the Wing Automation Manager joins Airport A&I 2020 speakers

‘There has been a huge focus on digitising the customer journey but while innovations in booking, airport and on-board experiences have changed the way airlines interact with passengers, airport baggage, ramp and logistics operations have remained largely unchanged for years.

Technology breakthroughs such as drones, robotics, autonomous vehicles and AI are now shaping how people and technology interact in society and industry. Technologies like these now have the potential to revolutionise the below the wing airport environment, transforming airport operations.’
