Leveraging a Passenger Flow Monitoring solution to optimise airport operations

Join this virtual round table where senior airport leaders and experts will be discussing integrating a Passenger Flow Monitoring solution to improve airport operational efficiency in a post-pandemic world.

In its Monitoring of Passenger Flows and Mitigation of Queues and Crowds at Airports whitepaper published in June 2022, ACI Europe recommends the implementation of a Passenger Flow Monitoring solution to measure and assess flows, crowds, and queues before setting up a mitigation strategy.

Join this virtual roundtable where senior airport leaders and experts will be discussing integrating a Passenger Flow Monitoring solution to improve airport operational efficiency in a post-pandemic world. We will be discussing how turning existing data into actionable data analytics helps airports plan for the unplanned while increasing passenger satisfaction. 

Key learning points:

  • Learn how Passenger Flow Monitoring data currently helps airports make intelligent decisions with their workforce against the current backdrop of labour shortages and the rising cost of energy
  • Discover how revealing refined passenger flow data serves the overall airport environment in adjusting budgets by shifting to a need-based resource allocation framework
  • Explore how monitoring passenger flow helps you increase non-aeronautical revenue
