High tech on FT summit agenda

Latest developments in big data analytics, real-time monitoring, connectivity, avionics, autonomy and automation are in the spotlight when The Financial Times inaugural FT Business of Aerospace & Aviation Summit comes to London tomorrow, 25 April, at the Hilton Tower Bridge Hotel.

Organisers say the developments are making for an exciting time in the industry as they continue to demonstrate value to airlines, airports, ANSPs, OEMs, suppliers and passengers. 

However, they say, aviation stakeholders seeking to push the boundaries of digital innovation must also adapt to an evolving regulatory landscape, finite airspace restrictions, emerging and disruptive technologies, and uncertainty around the IoT landscape.

Speakers leading the discussion include Google UK senior industry head for travel Stephany van Willigenburg; Etihad Airways vice-president for digital strategy and innovation Justin Warby and Heathrow chief information officer Stuart Birrell.

Also on the panel are Virgin Atlantic senior vice-president for technology Don Langford; Gatwick chief commercial officer Guy Stephenson; Ryanair chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs, and Air France-KLM executive vice-president for information technology Jean-Christophe Lalanne.
