Elsewhere in tech, we learn how cloud-based solutions can help improve baggage handling operations – a key area of concern since passenger volumes have increased post-pandemic. We also find out how mobile interfaces can improve passenger experience and how apps can make airport operations more efficient.
As well as all of this, we speak to the National Grid about how the owner of the high-voltage electricity transmission network is preparing to support aviation electrification. Lastly, we talk to Blueskeye AI about how the startup is using AI to track pilot fatigue.
