IATA released data for global air freight markets showing that demand, measured in freight tonne kilometers (FTKs), rose 3.1% in October 2018, compared to the same period the year before.
IATA (The International Air Transport Association) revealed that present trends in air transport suggest passenger numbers could double to 8.2 billion in 2037.

Passenger traffic is projected to double by 2036. We will not be able to handle this growth or satisfy evolving customer expectations with existing airport capacity, current processes, installations and ways of doing business. Furthermore, accommodating growth with ever larger airports will be increasingly difficult, if not impossible. New on-ground concepts are, and increasingly will be required to optimize the use of emerging technologies, processes and design developments. Individual stakeholders, such as airlines, border control, customs and screening authorities, have designed their processes around their own obligations and requirements, with little or no coordination between them. This has resulted in repetitive processes for the passenger, such as having to present travel tokens (boarding passes, passports, etc.) to many different stakeholders for different purposes across the end to end passenger experience. This is inefficient and not sustainable in the long-term.
IATA’s Passenger Experience vision is to lead the industry in delivering an end-to-end passenger experience that is secure, seamless and efficient. One ID seeks to introduce a collaborative identity management solution that spans all process steps and stakeholders in the end-to-end journey from booking to arrival at destination and back, putting the passenger in the center. The concept relies on early validation of the passengers’ identity, and controlled access to this information by the various public and private stakeholders on an authorized-to-know basis, so that the passenger can be recognized and attended to in the most efficient way in subsequent process steps. The concept involves the use of a trusted, digital identity, biometric recognition technology and a collaborative identity management platform. It will be supported by the development of a trust framework among the different stakeholders. One ID will remove the repetitive processes of passengers having to present different travel tokens to many different stakeholders for different purposes across the end to end passenger experience.
