Timeline - How we developed the FTE Innovation & Startup Hub
John Karner, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Denver International Airport
I think one of the higher values of today has been the opportunity to meet with some of the other fellow airports. The ability to learn from Gatwick and other airports, and what they are trying to do in the innovation space is almost as valuable as the opportunities to talk with the startups.
Raj Singh, Managing Director, JetBlue Technology Ventures
I’ve really enjoyed it – a lot of interesting startups, as always, and actually quite a lot of lively discussion, especially in the meeting sessions, which were excellent.
Sveinn Akerlie, CIO/Head of WOW labs, WOW air
Thanks to our membership of the FTE Startup Hub we have engaged with a number of excellent startups that we are now planning to work with to help give our airline a competitive edge. In addition to the startup engagement, it has been invaluable to build relationships and share insights with other airlines and airports around the world who are driving innovation agendas, too.
Alan McLaren, Head of IT Project Delivery, Gatwick Airport
The one-to-one sessions with the individual startups was really useful… getting the extra 15 minutes with them to really explore their pitch and understand the value they add was really beneficial.
John Sutherland, Manager, Digital and Innovation, Vantage Airport Group
Everyone tends to be on the same page on how we improve airport and airline experiences, and we are just trying to build all of the pieces together. So this is what this event provides; exposure and the ability to meet with startups we would have never really thought of. It is a great use of our time to stimulate discussions and I am sure there will be great follow-ups afterwards.
Since our launch in 2006, Future Travel Experience (FTE) has become a renowned independent hub, through our online media and international events, where the world’s most progressive airlines, airports, suppliers, government agencies, destination partners and various other travel industry stakeholders share their transformation plans and visions, and collectively define the end-to-end passenger experience of the future. We pride ourselves on being independent, future thinking and passenger focused, and we have successfully created a unique ecosystem in which the most progressive minds from our industry come together to solve industry challenges and be inspired on their next moves.
At FTE, we take our role as an industry change catalyst very seriously. To ensure that our events, media and innovation initiatives meet the specific needs of the air transport industry, as well as the wider travel sector, we have brought together a high-level Advisory Board. The FTE Advisory Board includes some of the industry’s most pioneering minds who work closely with us to help guarantee that FTE continues to provide more value and inspiration than any other organisation in the marketplace. The FTE Advisory Board includes senior representatives from JetBlue, McCarran International Airport, Google, U-FLY Alliance, Cathay Pacific, Changi Airport Group, WOW air and Gatwick Airport.
