Evolving distribution systems: where are we up to? Rich content, NDC and more

1 May, 2018

Everyone’s keen to expand reach and leverage revenue, ancillary or otherwise. Achieving optimum value is an elusive and constantly shifting goal, as new competitive entities arrive in the market, both at the operating level and using tech to find smarter new ways of doing business. Creating a bridge between traditional and future systems, where many – often uncomfortable – bedfellows must coexist is vital to medium term success.

This will be one of the topic areas discussed at the forthcoming CAPA- Centre for Aviation Airline Leader Summit - A CEO Gathering 2018 that takes place in Dublin, Republic of Ireland on 17-May-2018 and 18-May-2018.

Understanding aviation markets is CAPA’s great strength and passion and this year’s agenda includes a variety of topics sure to generate interest. Evolving distribution systems. Where are we up to? Rich content, NDC and more will be the panel session on the afternoon of the Dublin forum on 17-May-2018 and will follow a keynote address from Travelport, global head of product & marketing, air commerce, Ian Heywood.

It’s hardly a secret that the airline industry is facing myriad challenges, notably in the marketing and distribution areas, as companies with personalised data, and the analytics and artificial intelligence to go with it, become greater threats to the stability of the traditional airline model.

This high-level aviation event, hosted at Powerscourt Hotel Resort & Spa in County Wicklow, to the south of Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland, for a sixth time, is a forum for debate and discussion of strategic issues facing the aviation industry and it is attracting delegate interest from across the globe.

The main summit subject is "Airlines making money: a vision of the future”, with an underlying theme of disruption and change and it will bring together global leaders to discuss key strategic issues and challenges facing the industry as new technologies come online and tougher regulations create downward pressure on traditional revenue streams. The forum will also explore adapting business models, smart innovations and how the industry can embrace collaborative partnerships to adapt and flourish in the digital age.
