CHAIRMAN’S OPENING
 
DATA CENTRIC AIRCRAFT OPERATION: SOLUTION UPDATES
09:15-09:45
THE CONNECTED AIRCRAFT ECOSYSTEM: INSIGHTS TO OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY
A connected aircraft provides an ecosystem with the potential to help airlines realise substantial operational efficiencies for the entire fleet. The Boeing connected aircraft ecosystem is designed to ensure the aircraft is seamlessly connected to airline operations while ensuring the right information is available to the right people at the right time. By utilising a guided methodology approach, Boeing helps airlines to leverage data analytics driven solutions to proactively target aspects of their operations that will have the biggest impact on reducing operational risks and vulnerabilities. This presentation will provide examples of how data analytics helps airlines to take advantage of the connected aircraft ecosystem, along with a look at future opportunities to gain additional operations efficiency.
Syed Bilal, Regional Marketing Director, Boeing

09:45-10:15
CONNECTING THE DATA ECOSYSTEM
The connected aviation ecosystem is evolving with the aim to bring about frictionless travel. Within that seamless connectivity should empower this frictionless operation from the aircraft that share the airspace to the passenger seeking to get to and through the airport as quickly as possible. This educational session offers various scenarios and approaches – fusing big data, broadband and analytics, via evolving technologies that help the Internet of Things- on how to streamline process to create this frictionless travel experience whilst generating measurable business returns.
Joel Otto, Head of Connected Airplane Digital Strategy and Business Development, Collins Aerospace

10:15-10:45
COCKPIT ENVIRONMENT AS AN OPEN INFORMATION SYSTEM
This presentation addresses the increasing requirements for information sharing associated with cockpit, cabin and aircraft maintenance systems. It outlines the complexities – whether technological or regulatory – and values of an integrated aircraft information platform that enables a wide range of cockpit and other applications.
Alexandre Huynh-Belanger, Manager, Connectivity Solutions, CMC Electronics

10:45-11:15
COFFEE BREAK
 
THE EVOLVING CABIN AS A DRIVER FOR INNOVATION
11:15-11:45
CONNECTING MULTIPLE SERVICES THROUGH ONE PLATFORM
In this educational session Thales will describe the vision for a passenger engagement platform that is being delivered through an open in-flight entertainment environment. The purpose of this digital experience platform is to surprise and engage passengers, offering content, targeted advertising and shopping, all available through a state-of-the-art graphic user interface whilst enabling app developers to integrate their new solutions easily through the help of a software development kit.
Julia Jiggins, Head of Avionics Strategy, Thales

11:45-12:15
MONETISING IN-SEAT POWER
With the advent of the wireless networks as the major infrastructure to deliver inflight entertainment and connectivity, in-seat power is becoming a similarly critical element of the passenger experience. Because of the value of charging devices during the idle time in flight, airlines should think about how to monetise on this service that is essential to passengers.
David Thomas, Senior Advisory Consultant, IFPL

12:15-12:45
INTEGRATED VIDEO NETWORK – THE FUTURE OF ONBOARD SURVEILLANCE
This educational gives no less than a glimpse into the future of the passenger experience and the ability for airlines to offer additional value above and beyond what the current typical cabin layouts allow for. Safran and its partners are developing lower-deck modules that offer a variety of flexible passenger solutions in the cargo hold, such as beds, and stretching, playground or business areas that offer new opportunities for additional services to passengers, improving their experience while enabling airlines to differentiate and add value for their commercial operations.
Mike Horne, General Manager, Latecoere IS UK Ltd

12:45-13:15
OPTIMISING PASSENGER VALUE AND ANCILLARY REVENUES – A LOT TO GAIN
This session will outline for the example of LOT airlines the values and passenger relevance an intelligent and flexible software platform can bring to airlines to enable new functionalities and monetisation opportunities, thus turning the IFEC area from a cost center to a revenue generator.
Cyril Jean, CEO, PXCom; LOT Polish Airlines

LUNCH
 
COLLABORATIVE CORNER: WAYS OF ACHIEVING SUCCESS FOR ALL
14:15-14:45
HOLDING IT ALL TOGETHER IN THE BACKGROUND
While the front-end delivery of data throughout the cabin is growing exponentially and becoming increasingly wireless, the invisible data backbone needs to be able to sustain that growth. This presentation gives an educational overview of the technologies and innovations in that realm of the connected cabin.
Jim Foreman, Product Specialist Electronic Cables and Components, WL GORE

14:45-15:30
CONNECTED OPERATIONS AND DATA ANALYTICS: ENABLING THE WORKFORCE OF THE FUTURE
Aircraft connectivity in the air and on the ground enables a system where data and information can be shared across an airline’s operations, including its business partners, data analytics tools and applications, and workforce. This session will explore possible ways in which airlines can prepare the workforce of the future to adapt to continuing advancements in connectivity and data analytics technologies, with a focus on both the skills and infrastructure needed to enable success for each individual, team, and the broader enterprise as a whole.
David Okrent, Marketing Manager – Boeing Analytx

15:30-16:15
CONNECTING AIRPORT, AIRLINE AND PASSENGER
This case study from American Airlines and Grab outlines how an overarching open platform can leverage data from and benefits for everybody in the travel experience environment. Whether its apps for customer facing engagements, for concessions in airports, point of sale events, or the wayfinding around the airport, all of these elements empower the passenger to have a highly personalised passenger experience throughout the journey in the palm of their hands and it enables the service to maximise passenger touch points and profits.
Mark Bergsrud, CEO, Grab; American Airlines

16:15-16:45
COFFEE BREAK
16:45-17:30
CONNECTED EXPERIENCE PARTNERSHIP
The Connected Experience Partnership between Airbus, seat makers Stelia and Recaro, and catering-retail giant gategroup aims initially at the low-hanging fruit of generating value from the IoT that is clearly around the corner for the aircraft cabin.

This case study shows the value the connected cabin brings to airline operational efficiency, ancillary revenues, as well as the improved experience for the passenger. It shows how the end-toend cabin data management that connects the various cabin elements generates a whole range of benefits to all participants.

Didier Nasarre, VP Cabin Product Guidance, Airbus*

MEASURING PASSENGER HAPPINESS
11:15-11:45
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE-BASED CONSUMER INTELLIGENCE IN AVIATION
This educational presentation describes how to turn raw data into profits by enabling a much more personalised passenger experience. It relays how the combination of connectivity, data, predictive analytics and digital intelligence can power technologies and build applications that inform every touch point throughout the passenger experience. With that, IFE systems can be transformed from pure entertainment into a retail enabled platform with customer touchpoints that are more interactive, engaging and measurable.
James Mitchell, Technology Director, Black Swan Data

11:45-12:15
CREATING THE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR PERSONALISED PASSENGER EXPERIENCE
The key to the optimal infrastructure for a personalised passenger experience lies first and foremost in the integration of the content-related processes. The underlying hardware is also essential, but most of the utility value to the passenger and the airline is created through the software elements. Axinom will educate the audience by mapping out the process steps and their handling by airlines system houses as well as the touch-points they offer with the passenger.
Ralph Wagner, CEO, Axinom

12:15-13:00
PANEL DISCUSSION: AUTOMATION V. PERSONALISATION
This panel discussion will address the relation between the increase of automated passenger facing processes and the exponential growth for the need for a personalised travel experience. Are these objectives independent of each other? Are they contradicting each other? Are they complementary? Is the industry losing its touch through automation or are we gaining it by developing different, more impactful touch points?
