Referencing Star Trek might be a bit over the top. What we want to say is – crafting visionary concepts means stretching the limits of thinking and really exploring the boundaries of what is possible. Like the crew of the Enterprise.
Real innovations don’t come over night. Thinking ahead requires a structured, intense, iterative process of researching, identifying and testing new ideas. Which is why we have created exactly that: a think tank within our company.
The #FutureOpsLab is a structured approach to identify, research and design concepts for the future of airline and airport operations. Mostly reasonable, sometimes crazy. Always a source of actionable innovations.
How it works – and what it isn’t
It’s no new building. No start-up-style ‘incubator’. It’s our people collecting and developing concepts that can help airlines and airports get ready for the future, beyond our current projects.
A structured exchange of thoughts, a routine of screening the market and stretching the limits of traditional thinking. It’s talking to tech companies and universities, visiting space agencies and military organizations, drone operators, VR start-ups and IT innovators to assess if what they do can help you some day.
And it’s openly sharing what we find with you, online, within current projects or at airline industry events.
