Airports must act
As European air travel is recovering from COVID-19, passenger numbers are projected to double by 2040. However, airport infrastructure currently faces challenges with outdated facilities, lacking essential maintenance and upgrades necessary to accommodate this surge. Simultaneously, the diminishing workforce coupled with a growing trend in labour strikes poses a concern.
External factors such as fluctuating oil prices, interest rates, labour expenses and supply chain disruptions exert significant cost pressures on airports. Moreover, both passengers and authorities are advocating for a reduced carbon footprint, aiming for neutrality by 2035. Anticipated advancements in electric and hydrogen-powered aircraft are expected to be operational by the 2030s.

Our approach to aviation
Improve customer experience and regain trust
Valcon assists airports in assessing passenger needs and formulating clear service strategies. Our focus is on leveraging data to optimise operational workflows and drive strategic initiatives for long-term success, elevating the overall passenger experience. As an implementation partner for BagsID baggage identification systems, Valcon facilitates digitalisation objectives at airports. The BagsID technology utilises cameras, depth sensors and controlled lighting to automate the baggage processes. Artificial Intelligence assigns a Bag ID, eliminating the need for physical tags and consequently eradicating barcode no-reads.
- For airlines: Enabling luggage tracking, minimising lost bags and providing evidence for any damaged goods, optimising fuel loads and enhancing passenger service
