BEUMER Group – a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems – has published its latest report detailing its vision for the operational and economic landscape for airports through 2023.
Entitled ‘Airports 2023 outlook: The road to recovery’, the report gives airport and airline executives insights and information that has been compiled by BEUMER’s experts through their detailed knowledge of airport operations worldwide. It is the only report to provide a 360° view of the current state of the global airport industry and what we can expect looking ahead to 2023, with findings intended to help strengthen the airport business in the year ahead.
Digitalisation is the key to the recovery of the global airport sector
Implementing sustainable practices makes good business sense as well as being good for the environment
A reassessment of business models is necessary in this period of continuing volatility in the air travel industry
The main conclusions of the report include:
- The aviation industry’s road to recovery leads through digitalisation and a shift in airport business models.
- Digital technologies are also enablers for airports to operate smarter by using resources more sustainably.
- Implementing sustainable measures can be a win-win for airports, as efficiencies to reduce carbon emissions will also reduce operational costs.
- The airport sector continues to be volatile, and the aftereffects of the pandemic are giving rise to a reassessment of the airport business model.
The report also concludes that while it is possible that we are leaving the Covid pandemic behind us, there clearly remains volatility in the sector, which is challenging the fundamental business model of the airport.
