Inaugural Partner

As part of Future Travel Experience’s commitment to the continuous growth of the FTE World Airport Retailing Working Group, we are thrilled to announce its rebranding to the FTE World Ancillary & Retailing Working Group. This new identity reflects our broadened focus and commitment to inclusivity, now extending our platform to all relevant industry stakeholders, including airlines. With hundreds of members already on board, we firmly believe that by working collaboratively as a sector and leveraging technology, innovative approaches, and new business models, we can create a significantly larger revenue pie for everyone to share. This group has the potential to be a powerful platform for sharing ideas and learnings, accelerating our collective progress.

Future-focused with a worldwide view

The Working Group will be heavily future-focused with a worldwide view, aiming to identify and act upon opportunities to deliver positive change in the ancillary and commercial spaces for both airports and airlines in the years ahead. This effort will complement the work that is already being undertaken elsewhere in the industry, which often focuses on the here and now.

Importantly, as part of FTE’s commitment to the widest possible engagement, access to the Working Group will be free to all industry stakeholders.
