Future of Air Travel

The Future of Air Travel (FoAT) initiative is a series of on-going forums that bring together visionaries from across the aviation industry and beyond: operators, planners, developers, engineers, economists and technologists.

These forums aim to build a detailed understanding of the drivers shaping the future of air travel across socio-cultural, technological, economic, environmental and political domains. These conversations bring to life current thinking, identifying new ideas and opportunities within the ever-changing, technology-driven world of aviation.The FoAT Report identifies five key elements of the air travel experience as the ones vital to a renewed vision of aviation.

  • The end-to-end travel experience

  • Passenger terminal of the future

  • The checked bag reimagined

  • Redefining the passenger screening checkpoint

  • The role of Big Data
