AirPortr is an airline-integrated technology platform that provides smart baggage solutions for departing and arriving passengers. It connects airlines, airports, and people, to unlock the contactless journeys the industry is determined to create – by helping customers to travel bag-free, avoid queues, and eliminate the need to interact with SSBDs or agents at the airport.

By taking baggage out of the equation, AirPortr is transforming customer journeys, and making airlines and airports more efficient.
Airware removes the technology layer created between airlines and their passengers when passengers step into an airport. It can enhance the capabilities of an airline’s mobile app, so passengers can use it to tag and drop bags, as well as make payments for ancillary services directly on the mobile app. Simple appliances can be rapidly deployed across an airline’s network to ensure customers enjoy the same service. This reduces the technology and operational burden on airports to providing basic power and internet access only. “After opening our European and US offices last year, we have been deploying our solution with several airlines and airports,” the company says. “We are excited to introduce our innovative concept and engage with industry stakeholders on the vast benefits for both airports and airlines. Our team are here to demonstrate the capabilities of this revolutionary solution, showcasing Airware-enabled bag tag and boarding and look forward to discussing opportunities.”

Amazon Web Services
Launched in 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began exposing key infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services – now widely known as cloud computing.

Businesses no longer need to plan and procure servers and other IT resources weeks or months in advance. Using AWS, businesses can take advantage of Amazon’s expertise and economies of scale to access resources when their business needs them, delivering results faster and at a lower cost. Today, Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world.

It is BAGTAG’s mission to make travelling with checked baggage more comfortable and easier than travelling with carry-on. It is not just providing airlines with the right solutions for that, it is also helping to implement them throughout.

Nourish is a ‘system’. Low-cost carriers pioneered an important ancillary revenue vertical with the advent of ‘buy-on-board’ back in 2003, but there has been no innovation in this segment or challenge to these business models in over 20 years. Nourish will help legacy inflight catering evolve and is the catalyst for redefining the ‘rules of engagement’. The current tender and concession frameworks for airports are preventing the industry from evolving to urban realities (so Nourish is pioneering a new concession vertical) and LCC/ULCCs are best positioned to lead innovations in this area for self-preservation, but also to push back against sole-source B2B suppliers who forego pricing transparency and price gouge to exploit the system. The pandemic has accelerated consumer expectations for ordering just-in-time meals to suit, and on mobile applications, leading to the rise of ghost kitchens, cloud kitchens, and dark stores for quick commerce (i.e. 20-minute grocery delivery). Consumers expect a higher level of service and personalisation during travel: this is now a need – not a want.
