Spotlight on airport access

Autonomous vehicle technologies and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) are the hot topics for the second Airport Access Ideas forum being held in London on 27 June, hosted by law firm Katten Muchin Rosenman UK and the Global AirRail Alliance.

Presentations will centre on how such modern developments will impact the future of airport infrastructure design, non-aeronautical revenues, public transport access mode share and urban development.

Global AirRail Alliance director Milda Manomaityte said: “The forum gives the opportunity for transport professionals to challenge themselves and each other with forward-thinking discussions.

“Carefully-selected, short and thought-provoking presentations will highlight the future of automated and subscription-based transport technologies and look at how they will affect airport access for passengers and employees.”

Arup associate director Tim Armitage added: “I’m looking forward to hearing about the experiences of airports when considering the adoption of connected and autonomous vehicles and I hope to be able to share some of our learnings from the introduction of passenger cars and pods in two major UK cities.

“I also hope to engage in discussions on the timescales for commercial adoption of autonomous vehicles by passengers arriving at airports and the form that this adoption may take.”
