What is the FTE Digital, Innovation & Startup Hub?

Launched in 2018, the FTE Digital, Innovation & Startup Hub is a truly unique community designed specifically for the individuals and organisations who are at the forefront of digital transformation and innovation in the aviation industry. Our Corporate Partners – including many of the industry’s most forward-thinking airlines, airports and vendors – connect on a regular basis throughout the year and the FTE Hub is where meaningful relationships are forged, and learnings, ideas and case studies are continually shared.

It is a one-of-a-kind community where members can openly share their expertise and experiences, discover new partners and inspiration from outside of the sector, explore opportunities to collaborate, and deliver positive change. Our Corporate Partners also have access to hundreds of approved startup members, each of which has products and services specifically designed to help advance the air transport industry. Among the latest Corporate Partners to join are Gerald R Ford International Airport, KLM, Ontario International Airport, Port of Seattle, and Saudia.

There can be no doubting the huge potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and the wide-reaching impacts these technologies will have on the aviation industry in the months and years ahead. From optimising operations and enhancing efficiency to taking the customer experience to a new level, each of these technologies will be truly transformational for airports, airlines and their partners. This is why AI, Robotics and IoT are the core areas of focus for the FTE Hub in 2024.
