12.10 Keynote Address: The new mobility paradigm - What does it mean for airports?

Travel and transport is currently undergoing considerable change due to dramatic advances in technology and business models – hence creating a new mobility paradigm. Mobility as a services (MaaS) is a game changer currently transforming the way people think, plan and pay journeys. For airports this presents a generational opportunity to improve accessibility, connect journeys and improve customer experiences.

Mark Streeting is a Partner in L.E.K’s Sydney office and is one of Asia Pacific’s leading thinkers regarding surface transport, aviation and transport economics. He brings over 30 years of professional experience and has recently consulted directly to government and airport operators on improved ground access and mobility as a service implementation.

15.15 Keynote: Are you flying CyberSafe? Cyber risks of modern aviation and travel

We take a flight everyday without understanding the complexity of the ICT, navigation and integrated systems that make up modern aviation. From Inflight controls, GPS, ticketing, radio scheduling to ground controls, networked IT and software is everywhere. This brings a new generation of risk we must understand so we can take the necessary countermeasures to reduce and control these new operational risk.

Jorge will take you in a deep dive into some of these risk via demos, videos and practical interaction with the audience. In this presentation, Jorge will provide insights and stories gathered throughout the world. He will discuss ways to identify and combat these risks in today’s modern aviation.
