In a rapidly changing society, airports need to become adaptive organizations and systems. Strategy and planning should be adaptive, requiring airport development as a dynamic capability of the organization.
Furthermore, the emerging projects should be organized as a whole, and in such a way that the strategic processes are able to learn from the execution processes.
Sustainable airports provide a new balance between well-being and welfare for their communities. The airport is the cornerstone of the local circular economy and carbon neutral society.
Mobility Hubs are integrated areas that provide extreme high connectivity to the individual, delivering societal returns in terms of livability, economics, etc.
The presence of aviation is extended towards the dense areas of the urban area, thereby becoming more integrated with the public domain and people’s lives.
The digital airport is a virtual twin and, increasingly the surrogate of the physical airport. The digital airport is one of the main drivers of new aviation business models.
Digital airports use their IT infrastructure, data, AI and information management to become more efficient, predictable and ‘in-control’. Digitalization is key to create truly seamless journeys and on demand traveling.
