About the webinar

ForwardKeys and Edinburgh Airport – “The Airport view on Covid-19 Recovery, from 0 – 300K pax in 2 months.”

2020 will forever be etched in the memory of many as B.C and A.C – before and after Coronavirus. The health pandemic has bought pain into many homes and fear of travel for many more. However, the travel sector needs to unite and pull through this crisis as it has many other past obstacles through innovation, facts, and greater industry collaboration.

Born out of this moment of halting airplanes, travel restrictions, and many conversations within the industry, we proudly launch ForwardKeys & Friends. A webinar series where we place the spotlight on one of our industry friends to discuss the future of the hospitality, tourism, and aviation with an emphasis on how to use data more effectively.

In our fourth webinar, we welcome Pavel Halas, the Aviation Development Manager at Edinburgh Airport. The team at Edinburgh Airport has had to overcome some serious challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic which saw passenger numbers drop to zero at the peak of the outbreak. Discover how this Scottish airport transformed itself and grew its passenger audience to 300K over two months with the help of data and innovation.
