Digital systems offer solutions for growing traffic volumes

As the leading airport exhibition, inter airport Europe always reflects the recent developments and challenges that airports worldwide are facing. Since the airport industry is currently undergoing a digital change, the implementation of networked systems enables airport operators to face steadily growing traffic volumes at airports.

“Digitalisation is a key focus of inter airport Europe. At the show, visitors can discover and source the latest developments for the interconnected airport. A large number of airports worldwide are reporting of their search for new technologies which allow them to cope with growing passenger figures and growing traffic volumes in general”, says Ulika Tosner, Exhibition Director of inter airport Europe, on behalf of the organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions. “In order to ensure a smooth operation of the airport despite this growing traffic, digital systems are used more frequently. In addition, new terminals and runways are built worldwide which involves the need for new equipment. Therefore, inter airport Europe 2019 is the central marketplace for airport operators worldwide as it covers the entire spectrum of the airport”, continues Ulika Tosner.
