inter airport Europe 2013: Operational efficiency and sustainability in the focusSt Albans, )
Compared to the previous event, inter airport Europe 2013 has considerably grown in size, in particular in the outdoor area. Exhibiting companies who will present their large-scale equipment and vehicles in the outdoor area, have booked 20% more stand space for this year’s show. Some five months ahead of the event, the indoor area in halls B5 and B6 of the Munich Trade Fair Centre is almost fully booked.
The growth of this year’s inter airport Europe reflects the current positive outlook for the airport industry. This is due to an increase in passenger figures, mainly in emerging markets. However, the situation for the industry sector remains fragile with slow economic growth in many regions and the debt crisis in the Eurozone in particular. The global air freight market, for example, is currently weakening.
Against this background, the airport industry is facing challenges such as increasing energy costs, stricter environmental standards and the need to continuously adapt capacity to demand. Operational efficiency together with the improvement of the environmental impact of airports, are therefore key issues for airport designers and operators.
As a one stop shop for all aspects of airport planning, design and operation, inter airport Europe 2013 will present solutions to tackle the current challenges within the airport industry. With their new and improved equipment and technology, the exhibiting companies offer tangible solutions with a direct impact on fuel and carbon reduction and for a more flexible approach to managing passenger and freight capacity.
For industry professionals from airports, airlines, air cargo carriers and aviation-support the exhibition is an excellent opportunity to get an overview of trends and to source the latest products and services, ranging from electric or fuel-efficient GSE to new biometrics security systems. Designed to save cost and environmental resources, the equipment and systems on display can make an enormous contribution to increasing the revenues of airports of all sizes.
