With the International Air Transport Association (IATA) expecting 7.2 billion passengers to travel in 2035-a near doubling of the 3.8 billion air travellers in 2016-passenger volumes show no sign of slowing down. CrowdVision, Amadeus Ventures’ latest investment, is helping airports manage the growth, so travellers can benefit from faster check-ins and shorter security lines.

Collaborative Decision Making Across The Airport Process
Within the airport industry, we are at a crucial point in our evolution. The economic recovery means that global air traffic is set to increase and yet many airports, because of capacity constraints or outmoded legacy IT systems, are not in a position to cope with this growth. As an industry, Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) is being embraced as way of gaining the most out of our existing infrastructure.
