10:50 AM OPENING PANEL: Navigating the digital transformation journey-moving beyond connectivity

The ubiquity of connectivity across the aviation ecosystem is enabling explosion of disruptive tech such as AI, big data, cloud, sensors and more. While most airlines are already recognising the opportunities arising from connectivity, they are yet to understand how other technology will transform both, the front and back of the airline. This session discusses what is next for the digital aircraft transformation and how has industry changed over the course of past 12 month?

  • Creating more efficient sharing of data by connecting aircraft fleets
  • Optimising enterprise value through connectivity for flight and MRO efficiencies
  • Crowdsourcing weather and flight data for safer and more efficient flight paths
  • Improving safety and reducing operational costs through continuous access and collection of fleet information
