The Technological Revolution Will Transform the Passenger Experience

In a world where technology is advancing rapidly, airports of the future are envisioned as hubs of innovation and sustainability. According to the report ‘The Evolution of Airports: A Flight Path to 2050’ by Oliver Wyman, advances in biometrics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, and automation are expected to define the next era of aviation. From free baggage collection to virtual reality gaming lounges, the transformation will be comprehensive, offering advantages that will revolutionize the passenger experience.

Amidst growing environmental awareness, airports are committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. This commitment not only becomes a competitive advantage but also an imperative to attract investors and customers. Crucial steps include electrifying airport vehicles, incorporating sustainable materials in construction, and implementing sustainable aviation fuels. Furthermore, the vision includes airports evolving into energy hubs, producing green energy, and contributing to global decarbonization.

Digitization will be the key to an efficient and contactless passenger experience. From integrated digital identities to “on-the-move” processing, airports will adapt to provide a personalized experience from start to finish. Looking towards 2040, airports will cease to be mere transit points and transform into aerotropolises – airport cities of leisure with various activities and entertainment. This transformation will also open up new business opportunities for retail and leisure, redefining the airport landscape.
