 Episode 448

"Future of Aviation 

Beyond 2020"


The EAL Radio Show chose our next program on the upcoming ] infrastructure of Airport worldwide in our next topic March 2, 2020, Episode 448, Future of Aviation Beyond 2020".

How do airport officials prepare of 2020 and beyond? How do they intend to give passengers a better travel experience? New Digital Technology, that's how. Right now preparations are being made to do just that. Airports will use what we are now hearing about, Digital Twin technology as mentioned at the European SUTA Euro Summit in Lisbon November 2019. A Digital Twin is an advanced computer simulation that takes data from across the entire airport and airline operations to visualize, simulate and predict what will happen next.

Already passengers print their boarding cards at Kiosks in airports. Heathrow has fitted biometric software that scans passengers automatically. Edinburgh airports have Neatebox, a personalized app for passengers with disabilities to download. Munich Airport has humanoid robots already that greets travelers and answers questions.

Airports predict to be installing self bag drop-off machines by 2021…but since early 2018, Hamburg Airport installed sophisticated equipment for self-bag drop-off kiosks, letting passengers leave their luggage without waiting for faster use. Passengers check in and drop off their bag(s)), go through security and do whatever until they go to their gate. Oslo Airport can process a suitcase every 10 seconds. Birmingham Airport recently issued similar results.

Our team will provide more astonishing information and background of some of this new technology that looms on us as we speak.  Join us on March 2, 2020 and hear more by using our call-in phone number 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as the EAL 446 flight departs the gate, or listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.
