Showcase your startup to airlines, airports and their partners for FREE
It’s no secret that startups and scaleups can find it difficult to access and engage with the organisations that could benefit from the products and services they offer. Although there is generally a will among airlines, airports and other corporate innovators to engage with startups and scaleups, the demands of the day job often get in the way.
The FTE Digital, Innovation & Startup Hub provides a unique platform for startups and scaleups to ensure they are on the radar of the companies whose businesses they can help to transform.
In excess of 400 startups and scaleups are already listed on our online startup database and more than 100 of them have pitched to our Corporate Partners at in-person and online events. Join for free today to help boost your business prospects.Create your FREE startup account
Feedback from current startup and scaleup members:
Phillip Cornell, Founder & CEO, PM First
I joined the FTE Innovation & Startup Hub earlier in the year and my first event was the FTE Startup Competition in Istanbul in June… It was extremely beneficial to us because the exposure that it gave us led to very concrete meetings with senior executives at major airlines that have turned out to be very fruitful.
Safir Monroe, CEO & Founder, UnDelay
FTE provides a great ecosystem and opportunity to meet airline and airport leaders all over the world.
Mohamed Ibrahim, Founder, instafly.me
Here we found quality airlines and quality airports. They seem to be interested in our product, which is great. It’s been a great opportunity and we’re looking forward to the next one.
Julien Sivan, CEO, SKYdeals
There has been time to talk with the people who are interesting to us. I’ve had good conversations with airlines and startups. We’ll be back!
Martin O’Regan, CEO, Inflightflix
The Startup Hub Live event was a fantastic opportunity to pitch to multiple airlines and key decision-makers in the industry. Afterwards, an opportunity potentially worth multi-million euros was presented to me, which is amazing. It’s been a great opportunity. Everything was 10 out of 10.
Brian Whelan, CEO, Travacoin
The Startup Hub Day was fantastic and giving people like us – the startups – a platform like this is like oxygen for us.
Jere Tala, Head of Travel Retail, QuietOn
It has been a fantastic event. Very well organised and size-wise it is excellent. This is the first one completely travel-related. It is a stand-out from other events because each and every company and every stakeholder is somehow related to travel.
Ortez Gude, CEO & Co-founder, Citiri
It’s been valuable and I thought the format was great. There were some great Corporate Partners and people we wanted to talk to and meet with.

Startup acceptance criteria:
Our online startup directory highlights the best new products and services that have been created by startups for airlines, airports and their closely held partners. Since 2018 we have been building the largest air transport specific startup directory in the world, with a focus on the following areas: Inspiration & Booking, Airport, Inflight, and Pre- & Post-Travel.
If your startup or scaleup has something to offer in any of these areas, please get involved for free. The FTE Startup Hub is open to any startup or scaleup worldwide that is Series B or earlier and founded within the last 10 years.
Please note, if your startup or scaleup is a subsidiary or spin-off of a larger company, the parent company must also meet this criteria. We look forward to working with you!
