After two years of pandemic and despite the economic impact it had in the aeronautical sector. It has become clear the interest of those involved in creating great opportunities to increase investment in technologies that encourage the digital transformation of this important industry.
The main areas that will be favored by digitalization are the following:
Many airlines and airports have implemented this type of technology, not only to avoid contagions. But because they facilitate the transit of passengers in airports.
It’s used for the web check-in, self-check-in, unassisted baggage delivery, passenger checkpoints with facial recognition, or simple boarding pass scanners.
All are in the cloud and with data analysis facilities that provide a great tool for decision making and data sharing.
Today we see a lot of software and mobile applications that have increased exponentially and are used for the verification of data related to flights, passengers, or simply airport administration. So there is a very high level of vulnerability.
For this reason, cybersecurity has become one of the main investment points.
In the same vein of adapting to consumer habits and new business models, airlines, airports, and concessionaires have made significant investments to digitize their service offerings.
Which mainly includes payment platforms that facilitate the cancellation of financial obligations throughout the chain within the sector.
Digital transformation is not a new issue for the industry; in fact, it is the second sector, after Oil & Gas, that has made more efforts to stay at the forefront of technology, which drives to improve some operational activities of the business. However, there is a long way to go when it comes to evaluating the maturity of digitalization.
Currently, many startups are continuously working to present solutions that help leverage digitalization. With various products that will help to revolutionize the industry. Such as the AIMS Suite from GP Nauticals, which offers a range of possibilities about airport administrative systems.
