You can make the Collaborative Airport of the Future a Reality, Today


Imagine this. It's cold: below freezing. There's a fog coming in. Ice on the tarmac has led to delays in many passengers disembarking and slowed down the unloading of cargo. Everyone wants to take off on time — before the fog arrives. But to make that happen, you need extra de-icers, fast. If your stress levels are already rising, take a moment. Now imagine this. All the different agencies in your airport — the airport-operations staff, air-traffic control, the ground handlers, everyone — use intelligent, API-connected systems that continually and securely share data.

Are You Really Ready for the eVTOL Revolution?


In May 2023, United Airlines and eVTOL-maker Archer announced plans to launch an "air taxi" service based in Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. United passengers will be able to disembark at O'Hare and then take an electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) air-taxi to the city center [1].

Is this the answer to the airline labor shortage?


By 2026, US airlines alone will need to recruit 480,000 new technicians and 350,000 pilots just to keep pace with demand [1]. Worldwide, the industry will be short of 80,000 pilots by 2023 [2]. Already, labor shortages are grounding flights [3]. And disruption due to unfilled jobs is forecast to last for at least another decade [4]. As the sector works hard to make up for lost ground over the last few years, amid happily rising passenger demand, it must find a way to overcome these labor shortages.  The perk that other sectors can't match In the struggle to attract talented staff to the s...
