Passenger Terminal World will host an exclusive webinar, in association with Copenhagen Optimization and Manchester Airports Group, on February 22, 2024, titled ‘Connected operations – the new mindset in airport operations‘.
“Airport operators have long known the importance of data collection,” explains Copenhagen Optimization CCO Sarah Procter, who will host the webinar. While many still struggle to use data in daily operations, Procter asserts that best practice is emerging in the form of Connected Operations – a software-enabled approach where data is used proactively and flows through all operational areas. Procter says Manchester Airports Group (MAG) is committed to adopting this approach and is partnering with software company Copenhagen Optimization to help achieve its mission of operating the most intelligent airports in the world.
“In this webinar, MAG’s chief digital officer, Ryan Cant; airport product technology director, Mike Jones; and Copenhagen Optimization’s co-CEO and founder Kasper Hounsgaard; will introduce you to the vision of the Connected Airport,” she continues. “They will reflect on their shared experiences, the steps taken to make the vision a reality and detail the challenges experienced along the way.
“Today, the Connected Operations platform is reaching a level of maturity where, thanks to the effective use of AI and algorithms, MAG’s airports can predict what will happen in their operations, and through the use of prescriptive analytics, understand how to react. The result is a shift from siloed, short-term reactions, to connected, proactive scenario planning in pursuit of strategic goals.”
Questions to be addressed during the webinar:
- What are the key steps that all airports can take to utilize data more effectively?
- What are you doing about existing systems / solutions?

- How do you handle the change effort required?
- What elements are part of the ROI on Connected Operations?
