We have seen some rather significant advances in recent years regarding the passenger process from booking, to online checkin, to mobile phone boarding passes and indeed biometric processing of customers through airports.

Much of this has been championed by IATA airlines in genuine efforts to reduce costs but with the side effects of bring great advantages to the consumer and speeding things up for many.

So what can we expect from the airport/airline of the future? Does anyone have any insight into what we can prepare to experience in the next 10 years or so?

Well i guess some of the major changes are taking place already. Paperless cargo transportation, e-check-in, new aircraft frames (like 787, 380, 350) and even though facing some beginners-problems bringing huge changes in terms of efficiency and capacity, visions of "see through cabins", new products like lie-flat seats, onboard internet etc...

But to be really honest with you: I don't get the deeper meaning behind this thread? And the topic title doesn't help much.

Cheers, Sen.

I have no idea if we'll see it, but the holy grail of the airport experience will be to match the baggage handling and security flow times up with the passenger demand. If that can happen, you'd arrive at the airport, drop you bag at the waiting spot, walk through the security system that can keep up with how fast you walk, and you arrive at your gate...you'd basically cut the experience down to simply walking from the curb to your gate.

Do we need a "deeper" meaning!

Its a bit of banter fella. See what ideas are out there to improve the passenger process perhaps? See what the travelling public may want. What technology is available to radically change things!

We'll see slot restricted airports to take on larger jets, even for regional flights. That's the biggest thing I think will change. Unless Hypersonic travel ever takes off.  


Rule number One, NEVER underestimate the other guys greed

The big thing will come from new ATC systems.
