The Journey is an open innovation program by Beta-i supported by Turismo de Portugal, bringing together startups and industry stakeholders to foster innovation and sustainable practices in the sector.
Airport efficiency and sustainability are at the centre of The Journey 6th edition. Startups will have the opportunity to pilot solutions with industry leaders.

Their affairs must be transformed by focusing on:

Aim to comprehend the entire airport affair in terms of data. Collect valuable information to improve the traveller’s experience, optimise the use of the facilities, and reduce the carbon footprint of it all.
Achieve optimal use of infrastructural resources by allowing for a smoother, faster passenger transit through the airport.
Offer technological innovation for the digitalization of experiences, adding to the whole airport experience while reducing its environmental impact.
GREENER AIRPORT FACILITIES
Balance the environmental impact of airports by proposing technologies/solutions for a better use of airport resources and optimal processes.
