MAIA 1st Stakeholder Workshop – Connecting air and city grounds

MAIA 1st Stakeholder Workshop – Connecting air and city grounds

04 Dec 2023

POLIS Network offices, Brussels, Belgium

The goal of the SESAR project MAIA is to develop a set of data analytics and modelling tools to support the evidence-based design and implementation of multimodal airport access solutions based on two passenger mobility innovations: shared autonomous vehicle fleets and unmanned aerial vehicle fleets.

MAIA tools will monitor and anticipate passenger behaviour changes due to these new options, optimise vehicle dispatching under multimodal disruptions and recommend appropriate locations for vertiports, with the aim of maximising the contribution of these mobility innovations to the competitiveness and sustainability of the European aviation sector.

The workshop will present the results of their first project investigations in terms of airport accessibility state of the art. The challenges observed and needs for improvement will be discussed with the audience, as well as best practices and potential for collaborative learning. The audience will dive into sustainability aspects, as well as smart connections and user-friendliness. The workshop will allow to gather feedback about the opportunities and risks associated with passenger mobility innovations in a multimodal airport access context.
