Topics, trends and technologies for simplifying passenger and baggage handlingWith Cologne Cathedral right on the doorstep, the Materna ips team met up with their customers and partners in the “Old Cologne Waiting Room” for this year’s Aviation Forum. It was the perfect location for us as it provided plenty of space for the approximately 100 participants as well as an exhibition area for our partners and manufacturers. The presentations focused on new technologies such as the deployment of biometry at different passenger touchpoints. This is in pursuit of the specific aim of achieving paperless travel so as to minimize the amount of time passengers spend waiting in queues in front of check-in or baggage drop desks where they currently have to show various different travel documents. “Take away hassles from our guests and put them in control,” was stated by Dr. Björn Becker from Lufthansa in his presentation. We would like to say a big thank you to all the guests for participating and for the positive feedback.
