Head of Ground Operations at IATA joins 2020 Airport A&I speakers

“Innovation and automation at airports are the break-through technology that has to be seen to be believed. Our main focus now is to see how ground operations will tap into this parallel reality by contributing meaningfully to improving the aircraft turnaround.  Safety, efficiency and monitoring on-time performance – all vital to smooth functioning ground operations – are all made possible through the multitude of innovative ideas and technological advances.  I am proud to be part of this change as IATA Ground Operations launches its CEDAR (Connected, Ecological, Digital, Autonomous Ramp) initiative and help guide the industry.”
