Building Interoperability in Airport Operations
7.2 Billion Global Passengers by 2035
IATA, or the International Air Transport Association, forecasts that the number of people traveling by plane will double from 3.8 billion in 2016 to 7.2 billion by 20351. This fast growth is creating mounting pressure for airport operators, who need to ensure their infrastructure can handle the higher number of people, baggage, cargo, and planes in a safe and effective way.
Even though there are many ways that technology can help us deal with this problem, we are starting to see significant “digital clutter” as we add more technology. In many cases, airports are forced to expand their security operations centers to make room for the ever growing number of devices, screens, and systems.
