Working groups

Identifying trends, developing solutions, setting standards

The basis for a comprehensive opinion-forming and intensive representation of interests is a sound professional work. In currently six working groups, committed members of the association discuss current issues and exchange experiences. The extensive knowledge results in statements and position papers.

 

The standards developed in this way serve as a guideline for the airport industry and as a basis for the association's public relations work.

To operate an airport IT systems, computer centres and global networking for data exchange with all parties involved in air

For instance automatic baggage recognition became possible through the use of neural networks and high-resolution camera images. Potentially disruptive potentials for change in cloud computing, data analytics and information pooling etc. are discussed in this working group.
