Passenger Technology Solutions set to return to Hamburg
The second edition of Passenger Technology Solutions (PTS) is returning to the Passenger Experience Week in Hamburg from April 2 to 4, 2019. The event will enable vendors to engage with global industry professionals and explain how their latest innovations will enhance the passenger experience.
According to SITA Air Transport IT Insights 2018, almost a third of airlines now running major Artificial Intelligence (AI) programs and nearly 60% are investigating opportunities to implement blockchain solutions.
PTS provides a platform to showcase new technologies to the world’s leading airlines, terminal operators and rail businesses – including representatives from Airbus, Boeing, British Airways, Qantas, Emirates, Norwegian, Eurostar, Deutsche Bahn, Hamad International Airport and Turkish Airlines.
Additionally, technology vendors can now apply to join the PTS seminar theatre. Last year Black Swan Data, Aviget, Reaktor, Quicket and MiniMe Labs were among the businesses that explained how they were helping redefine the passenger journey.
Patrick Prefontaine, Chief Commercial Officer of Black Swan Data, commented in a statement: “Airlines are waking up to the full potential of big data and how it can be used to transform the passenger journey. PTS provides a great platform for engaging with operators around how they can make full use of their data to enhance the passenger experience.”
PTS exhibitors can also enjoy the benefits of the show’s co-location with three of the industry’s leading passenger experience events: Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX), World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) and the Passenger Experience Conference (PEC). Together, AIX, WTCE, PTS and PEC, which make up Passenger Experience Week, provide a platform that enables those responsible for cabin design, inflight entertainment, connectivity, technology, passenger comfort, travel catering and onboard retail to deliver on the demands of the 21st century passenger.
Speaking about the return of PTS, Archana Sharma, Exhibition Director, said: “Technologies such as blockchain, biometrics, AR and machine learning are helping to connect airports as well as airline, rail and cruise operators with passengers to offer a seamless and personalized experience at every stage of the travel journey. The products and solutions showcased at PTS have the power to reshape the travel industry and we’re delighted to welcome the show back to help vendors reach new contacts from around the world.”
