Return on experience: Connectivity and the evolution of the IFC economic model (joint panel with SmartPlane)

In-flight connectivity is reaching a new level of maturity every year. The increasing bandwidth supply and demand, the corresponding improvement in equipment technologies, and the ever-changing passenger behavior are having an ever-greater impact on airlines. Airlines being at the forefront of the overall passenger experience have to stay dynamic and adapt accordingly. In this session, our panelists from different airlines, operating in different parts of the world, will share their experiences related to IFC. Emphasis will be given to the different economic models present in the airline industry and their evolution related to the IFC.

The service provider’s perspective: “Being at the heart of the IFC value chain” (joint panel with SmartPlane)

At the center of the IFC value chain, satellite service providers witness every transformation in the aviation industry, from evolutions in capacity pricing to the increasing maturity of airline operators. As the industry matures, vertical or horizontal integration and other types of strategic positioning in the value chain may become relevant in a dynamic environment. During this session, service providers will share their views on the competition, industry evolution, business models, and competitive positioning for today and tomorrow.
