Recommendations for airports and airlines to improve baggage, security, immigration, arrivals and more in 2015
Future Travel Experience
2015 marks the 10th year of Future Travel Experience and to support our efforts to be a catalyst for inspiring travel industry stakeholders to improve the passenger experience, we proclaim 2015 the "FTE Year of Innovation." You will hear much more about this initiative in the coming weeks, including information on how our digital media and three international events will support our efforts, but we start the year by identifying the main areas that airports, airlines, suppliers and other key stakeholders in the travel chain should be seeking to improve over the next 12 months, and offering some recommendations on what can be done to help improve the passenger experience on the ground. Many of these recommendations are inspired by the FTE team’s recent travels during the festive season.
