15:30 Panel discussion: Improving the passenger experience in the face of skyrocketing passenger demand
  • Airports across Asia need to fix passenger flow to be able to continue to grow. What role does automation play in ‘de-queueing’ and allowing airports to maximise space to meet demand?
  • Security: minimising inconvenience without compromising safety and security
  • The key Airport-Airline strategic interface is the customer. So why can’t the experience for the passenger be vastly improved, and who’s leading the way?
  • Do winning airports think like airlines? And do they need to?
  • Are Japan’s airports 2020 ready? What challenges will the Olympics 2020 pose?
