A year into the pandemic, the aviation ecosystem is still reeling from loss of traffic, revenues and business activity. Even with the progressive roll-out of vaccinations globally, much remains to be aligned and agreed upon among nations, health authorities and regulatory bodies before a greater degree of international travel can resume.
Hear how our airport member CEOs, who also serve on the ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Board, have tested their leadership skills in the face of the pandemic and how they are navigating their teams and constituents through the various trials towards restart and recovery.
The adoption of biometric technology has accelerated since the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, as airports in the Asia-Pacific region look to simplify operations and to meet new passenger demands for more streamlined, contactless experiences with fewer interpersonal interactions.
However, when biometric programs are siloed, the benefits can only extend so far.
The airports positioned to benefit most from their investments will be those that take an end-to-end view, considering how biometrics can facilitate the entire passenger journey, from check-in on or off the airport, to accessing airport lounges and premium services, to boarding.
By removing silos and taking a holistic approach enabled by automation and closer integration between airline and airport systems, airports can scale more effectively, minimize complexity, and empower passengers to manage their own biometric journeys.
In this session Sarah Samuel, Head of Airport IT Asia-Pacific at Amadeus, will be joined by Hideharu Miyamoto, Executive Officer Vice President Corporate Planning Division, Narita International Airport Corporation to discuss how this end-to-end journey can be implemented.
The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant disastrous hit to global passenger traffic has been well documented. And as a natural flow on from that slump in passenger volume just about anywhere you care to name, commercial revenues have been devastated.
An expert panel of airport and retail representatives will together assess the impact of the pandemic on a selection of outstanding diverse airports but also look forward. Hear how airport has each responded and adapted to the biggest and most sustained crisis in modern aviation history. And hear how are they are looking ahead and planning for the better days that do lie ahead.
As the air travel industry and governments look for ways to simplify flying, the pressure is to deliver a faster and enjoyable journey for the passengers while meeting the health requirements/documentations from the various nations.
ATI Health Ecosystem facilitate the flow of secure information, helping to mitigate the risk of importing/exporting COVID-19, enabling a safer, more straightforward travel experience for passengers.
During the webinar, we take a look at ATI Health Ecosystem from different aspects -
• the facilitation needed for mutual recognition and interoperability among nations
• the concerns of the operators and governments in the validation and authenticity
• the impact for each stakeholder - airlines, airports, governments and passengers
Public confidence to resume air travel will be heavily influenced by the sector’s willingness and actions to tackle climate change and transition to sustainable business models. It will be imperative that the recovery of the sector addresses the balance of the three pillars of sustainability: economic viability, environmental protection and social equity. Top of the agenda now is how businesses, including the airport sector, will decarbonize to meet the Paris Agreement’s climate change goals of to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels.
In this webinar we will discussing carbon reduction, carbon neutrality and carbon goals and celebrate the recognized airports of the 2021 Green Airports Recognition.
The aviation sector in Asia faces two seemingly opposing forces, the accelerating drive to develop capacity to deliver socio-economic benefits, and the urgent need to minimize the sector’s adverse impacts.
In this session, we will explore the levers for Asia’s greenfield airports to achieve sustainable outcomes, drawing from a holistic view of positive benefits and negative consequences, lessons learnt from other regions, and identifying actions that can be taken at the concept, planning and implementation stages.
COVID has led to a fast track in innovation at Airports and the necessity to adopt Smart Airport technologies in order to provide a safe and contactless environment for passengers and the wider airport community. With the drive towards digitalisation, Airports have effectively changed their risk profile and need to ensure that they evolve their risk methodology in order to re-assess that they are fit for a post COVID travel environment.
Six months into 2021 and almost 18 months into the pandemic, much has changed and yet, much remains unchanged. International travel restrictions still prevail in many parts of the world. We have seen significant progress in vaccination roll-out in some countries but we have also seen disheartening setbacks with the resurgence of infection cases in others.
As we close out this @ACIAPAC Online series and while the world continues waiting for the pandemic to run its course, four more airport leaders in the Asia-Pacific region will speak with us. Hear them share insights on how they have been leading their teams and constituents through the challenging times in each unique context. Join us as we ask what they think the new normal will look like and how they’re gearing up their teams under these circumstances.
