Future Travel Experience Europe 2014

We are delighted to announce that Future Travel Experience Europe 2014 will take place in London from 3-5 March 2014. Delivered in partnership with Heathrow AirportBritish AirwaysGatwick AirportLondon Stansted AirporteasyJet and London City Airport our goal is to help airlines, airports, handlers, cruise operators, government agencies, rail authorities, destination partners and industry providers make the best possible decisions regarding the evolution of passenger and baggage processing methods, terminal facilities and other offerings relating to improving the overall passenger experience.

The reason we have decided to stage our first independent European event in London is because we believe it is this European city’s airports and airlines that are doing the most to truly improve the passenger experience within. Following the Olympics, change of ownership among the London airports, and healthy competition between airlines inspiring innovation, there is a unique story to share here, which we will complement with outstanding case studies and contributions from speakers around the world.

Read the report on the
first FTE Europe conference

Over two days the first FTE Europe conference addressed a unique regional challenge: If the battle for traveller loyalty is increasingly won on the ground, but almost all carriers and airports are now utilising similar processes, how can differentiation be achieved in the eyes of the passenger? Taking place as part of ACI Airport Exchange 2012 hosted by Schiphol Group, it was deemed a big success thanks to outstanding presentations from the likes of KLM, Schiphol Group, SAS, Fentress Architects, London Gatwick Airport, IATA and the Transportation Security Administration.
