Welcome and introduction – University of Westminster (PDF)
- Session 1. Challenges of a data-driven model
The DATASET2050 model
The current state of mobility in Europe – University of Westminster (PDF)
Which journeys are in scope when measuring the 4-hour door-to-door target?
What data sources are available for the current and future models?
Meeting the passenger’s demand: current and future – Bauhaus Luftfahrt (PDF)
Challenges ahead: how will we model 2035 and 2050?
Assessing current supply and demand profiles.
Developing a new model for European mobility – Innaxis (PDF)
What new metrics (and segmentations) do we need, apart from simply measuring average journey times?
Analytical approach – what metrics are needed?
What is the current status of such journeys – latest progress with the model.
- Session 2. Further exploring the journey process phase by phase – where are the efficiency gains?
Door-to-kerb – Kai Nagel, Technical University of Berlin (PDF)
Improved airport accessibility: intermodal mobility; efficiencies of different modes (e.g. better utilisation of road-based modes – fuller cars/taxis; prioritisation schemes); modal shift; integration and passenger confidence.
Kerb-to-gate – Genovefa Kefalidou, Horizon 2020 PASSME project (PDF)
Reducing door-to-door airport travel time for passengers in Europe.
Providing passengers with real-time information on predicted demand for airport services.
Improving the airport experience for passengers.
Gate-to-gate – Steve Williams, NATS (PDF)
The impact of new SESAR solutions aimed at improving gate-to-gate operations, including free-routing, business trajectories, functional airspace blocks and ATM performance targets.
The role of wider EU policies such as Regulation 261/2004.
- Session 3. Looking ahead to 2035 and 2050
Futures near and far – Christoph Schneider, Munich Airport (PDF)
Evolution of demand – market maturities, new technologies and travel patterns.
From where will the key performance improvements come? – panel discussion (PDF)
Major improvements and barriers. Is the 4-hour target achievable – at what price? What should be the role of regulation and policy?
