CONFERENCE SPEAKER: Arup to showcase how to form an airport of the future

Arup’s global aviation leadership will be speaking about creating airports of the future as part of a number of presentations at Passenger Terminal Expo 2018.

On day one, Stuart Hawkins, associate director, digital, and director of strategic projects, Dubai Airports, will host the ‘One ID - biometrically enabled, cross-border trusted transfers’ presentation during the Aviation Security, Border Control & Facilitation session.

Dubai Airports has embarked on an ambitious plan to use biometrics to connect the airport to all the other major airports to improve the passenger experience at Dubai International Airport (DXB).

By gathering passenger biometric data at departing airports, using it in DXB and sharing all of this with the arriving airports, passengers no longer have to present paperwork at touchpoints, including in airports they have never been to before.

Hawkins will also speak on panel discussion ‘Terminal flow management and the connected passenger’ as part of the Management & Operations sessions. Airports have invested in numerous different technology solutions to track passengers and measure queue and dwell times throughout the different terminal processes.

At this talk, audience and panelists will discuss how this data is being transformed into management information, and the techniques applied to improve terminal flow management. How personalized tracking data can be generated and shared with passengers for the next generation of connected passenger interaction will also be on the agenda.

Other speakers from Arup’s network will be at talks over the three-day weekend, including Stacey Peel, associate director, strategic aviation security lead, as part of ‘The future-ready airport’ presentation; Kevin O’Grady, associate director, airport development on the ‘Aviation – the future of international capital aviation costs’ talk; and Rene Rieder Jr, associate principal, resilience security & risk, who will present 'Mitigating security risks utilizing a security management systems (SeMS) programme’.
