Impact of disruptive technology: changing the face of airports
Date: 25 September 2019
Airports need to prepare for radical change given the number of emerging disruptive technologies. This session will cover technologies including space travel requiring vertical take-off facilities, virtual take-off and landing aircraft (VTOLS) aimed at ultra-short haul flights within and across congested cities which may utilise existing infrastructure and how new ride sharing services (Uber, Lyft) are impacting the traditional taxi models and autonomous vehicles. How can airports capitalise on them and what is the impact to the delivery of service and revenue generation?
