What brings you to the EXPO this year?

Paragon ID exhibited at Future Travel Experience in 2019 and 2021 and we were really encouraged by the quality of attendees and the opportunities that followed.

As a global supplier to the industry and with two manufacturing sites in the US, we feel that it is very important to participate to FTE22, to understand and discuss market trends, customers’ expectations and innovations.

We are really looking forward to being able to, again this year, meet in person our clients, partners and other industry professionals to promote our brand and solutions and discuss the future of aviation post pandemic.

Equally we will also discuss how Paragon ID has changed, grown and has continued to invest in smart technologies during the health crisis to take a pro-active approach to best serve its clients.

What do you think is the biggest lesson that the industry will take away from the COVID-19 crisis?

Aviation has been one of worst hit industries globally. Alongside the loss of passengers, the health crisis has brought some new challenges to the sector. On top of safety and security which were already key in the industry, passenger health and handling has also become a core operational challenge.

Globally, the health crisis has also accelerated many trends including digitization and the use of contactless technology. It has changed forever customers’ habits and expectations. It has also accelerated the requirements for airlines and airports to improve efficiencies.

The industry is adapting to these changing requirements and many initiatives have been implemented included the ability to smoothly pass through check in and the improvement in baggage drop off and boarding processes – all with a view to ease the passenger journey and alleviate any concerns they may have.

Using technology as part of that process is key; whether it is to offer baggage self-tagging and drop off so that the passenger feels in control, to provide real time updates on where their precious luggage is using RFID baggage tags or to use facial recognition for security and passenger boarding.
Airports, airlines and ground handlers’ top priorities must be the strengthening of passenger related health measures, the wide adoption of digital communication and IoT to improve efficiency, real time information and overall passenger experience.
