FTE Onboard 2025 Think Tank


The first of its kind Onboard 2025 Think Tank brought together senior figures from Airbus, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Panasonic Avionics Corporation, Avianca and Honour Branding to collaboratively define the narrow-body experience of 2025, and to identify the key challenges and opportunities facing the various industry stakeholders charged with defining tomorrow’s passenger experience. You can access the full 50-page Think Tank presentation for free, and use it to drive improvements across your own business as you plan your future cabin strategies. The FTE Onboard 2025 Think Tank was created in 2015 and launched exclusively at FTE Global 2015.
