What makes the European airport market very special? To get a better understanding we asked ADB SAFEGATE´s Regional Sales Director Europe, Regardt Willer. In this interview Regardt explains about the biggest challenges and also about solutions to help mitigate the effects. Because of geographical constraints, European airports do not always have the freedom of expanding by means of geographical expansion. Instead airports often need to optimize operations. ADB SAFEGATE’s contribution is predominantly based around providing the airport with the tools to aid decision-making and other tools to speed up the processes at the airport.

VIDEO INTERVIEW. The African market is very interesting in the sense that the air traffic is expected to double in the next 20 years. Africa accounts for 15 percent of the world population but only two percent of the global air traffic. For many international airlines, high profit and stable passenger growth make Africa an attractive market. And now, with traffic is set to double in the coming years, Africa will not only attract more stakeholders, airlines, investors and financiers but also the whole business world.
