What do you think is the biggest lesson that the industry will take away from the COVID-19 crisis?
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on economies globally and has driven the unprecedented acceleration and use of technology and its full potential. The pandemic has conditioned and altered the behavior of individuals due to travel limitations, new forms of consumption (digitally) and new work models, but also exposed risks and vulnerabilities, with innovation and security challenges.
The technological response from public entities and some private companies has been under the spotlight since we depend on the maintenance of their services on our daily society activities. However, the pandemic proved that the future is evolving to a technological disruption and implementation of solutions that add value to services and user experience. In the aviation sector, for example, it’s certain the need of a solution allowing a qualitative advance in passenger automated management, ensuring a more user-friendly and secure experience, reducing physical interaction with surfaces and their exposure to the risk of pathogen transmission.
The Covid-19 pandemic proved that we are already on the right path and this is an opportunity for us to further develop this type of technological solutions. Previous solutions seen as pioneering and futuristic, are now fundamental to the recovery and sustainability of the Aviation industry.
