  • understanding how people may experience a journey from 2030

Preparing for 2030 and a New Travel Landscape: Innovation at Air New Zealand

Kerry Reeves, Head of Airline Programmes, Air New Zealand

Getting the balance of current behaviours, insights and future predictions is critical to identifying a design specification. What people say isn’t always what they do: create and develop concepts and mock-ups to check, test & observe. Let your own opinion determine the questions not the answers. If you explore the questions and problems to enough depth, the answers and solutions will become obvious.

If you think innovation is hard, wait until you try to execute and operationalise it.

Debunking the Seamless Journey

Eric Bogner, Executive Creative Director, Teague

Aviation grows more complex by the day as we ride a wave of innovation in tech and sustainability while answering to new demands from both passengers and policy. With all this complexity in the industry, how do we better engage with passengers and support their travel expectations?

Thinking in ecosystems and creating a multimodal system is about focusing on stitching together the different facets of the travel experience. Potential pinch points are opportunities for innovation, collaboration, and differentiation.
