Major international airports are seeing their passenger numbers increase year on year. New technologies also bring with them a whole host of solutions designed to improve the daily lives of millions of passengers and employees. People's behaviour, methods of transport and technology are all constantly changing, meaning that the airport of the future won't necessarily look like the airports we know today.
Over to you to prove that you're essential for the airport of the future!

Propose solutions for aircraft (equipment, traceability, optimization) or for managing cargo layovers.
Things to remember
Airports are places that are subject to a number of constraints.
As such, your project must of course be compatible with the wide range of security regulations surrounding airports.
It will need to take into account the fact that airports are multicultural places visited by people of all ages, some of whom have limited mobility or disabilities.
Many kinds of people visit airports, including travellers and those accompanying them.
The airport of the future needs to be eco-friendly and include a focus on sustainable development.
