    How can airports meet the sustainability challenge and stay efficient? Is a holistic operational view sustainable with a triple bottom line of Social, Economical & Environmental factors? The Carbon Offset Scheme for Aviation (CORSIA) can play a critical role through the provision of aviation associated products and services which can now influence the supplementary revenue stream generated from the carbon diminution asset. This can lead to a ‘green transformation’ across the whole aviation industry.

    Non-aeronautical revenues continue to be a vital component of an airport’s bottom line. This source of revenue tends to generate higher net profit margins, whilst providing airports with more diversification of income streams which then serve as an additional cushion during economic downturns.

    Privatization of ANPS brings new opportunities and challenges to the region with increase in traffic growth, availability of skilled resources, airspace constraints, etc. How are these challenges being addressed? Where are the gaps and opportunities for the private sector to collaborate and form partnerships? Are we going in the right direction? What role will innovations play in the short and long term? What impact will these innovations have on making privatization of this business a good return on investment?

    Tower implementation provides considerable flexibility (both pre-planned and ad hoc) in the provision of air traffic services in areas with a number of relatively low-traffic aerodromes or where the requirement for the provision of ATS may be unpredictable - diversions, SAR or civil / state aircraft. This session will also look at the impact of digital tower technologies on ATS operations, technological challenges and operational constraints, as well as the opportunity to increase capacity, efficiency and enhance safety.

    Secured GPS Navigation provides an ideal solution for Air Traffic Flow Management and Ground Based Augmentation Systems. Collaboration between FIRs is necessary to take advantage of increased satellite constellations across the globe that can potentially bring harmonization between regional and global ANSPs. The session will also look at the challenges of available bandwidth and constraints for secure communications using the available satellite infrastructure.

    The ability to track passengers who have already been through some aspect of screening can help reserve resources and reduce redundancies. This would also allow for the collaboration between standard and pre-checked lines at less busy airports, which would help to speed the screening process and reduce passenger waiting time. Additionally, smart surveillance systems may be able to more easily identify passengers with items they were not initially associated with or illegal to carry.

    Airport security threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated and diverse, especially as millions of individuals from different countries and companies pass through these facilities each day. This session will look at adopting a new security approach that constantly keeps track of individual behaviors in order to spot external influences and analyze risks in advance.

    Dubai International Airport currently handles more than 89 million passengers per annum and with the Expo 2020 approaching and throughout its tenure, this figure is expected to rise by another 12%-16%. How can security be enhanced at the airport to remain efficient and smooth while at the same time meeting the extra passenger .influx. The Dubai Customs Innovations Center, with the help of the Dubai Customs Airport team, will be conducting a workshop for the very first time to highlight challenges and discuss best practices with global industry leaders attending the Airport Security conference. Delegates will have a unique opportunity to be a part of this engaging and one of its kind problem-solving workshop, narrowing the bridge between the government and the public.
