Opening remarks
How the plane will become smart(er)

Connectivity is making real-time aircraft monitoring a reality: Aircraft operators, OEMs and aircraft component and systems manufacturers will access TB of data on any flight activity. How will Big Data change airline operations? Who will manage, own, monetize and benefit from the collected data?

Morning coffee break
Aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) providers discussion
In discussion with digital media and entertainment providers
The connected aircraft: Raising the bar for passenger experience

Airlines will present their strategies and discuss their goals and the challenges they face with regards to in-flight connectivity. How can airlines make the most of the connected aircraft? From the planning phase to the implementation and management of the user experience, executives will share views in their current experience and expectations for the next five years.

Exploring the potential of the connected aircraft

Airlines will derive significant operational benefits through connectivity thanks to electronic flight bags (EFB), aircraft health management and other options, at the cost of having to revise existing processes. How can airlines leverage big data to improve efficiency and safety? Which ecosystem of partners is required to enable the implementation of new solutions?

Afternoon coffee break
IFC: The new gold rush for service providers?

Bandwidth available to aircraft will dramatically expand in the coming years. However, much of the technology used remains incompatible with other systems. How will IFC services evolve to provide more added value to airlines? And which business models will become dominant in the industry?
