Emirates harnesses new technologies to deliver better travel experience

  • Published by Vedat
Emirates’ Knowledge-driven Inflight Service (KIS) System, one of the initiatives under the airline’s continued drive to harness technology to enhance customer experience, has been recently recognised with the Editor’s Choice Award by the Corporate Publishing International (CPI).

emirates-kis-appThe KIS system and tablet, which was developed by Emirates’ Group IT in partnership with Microsoft and HP, enables cabin crew to operate with greater efficiency and provide a more personalised service to the airline’s customers.

Created exclusively for the use of Emirates, the technology places flight, staff and passenger-related information into the hands of Emirates’ Cabin Crew. This enables the team onboard to respond dynamically to operational and customer needs and deliver a heightened level of service, unrivalled within the industry and for which the airline prides itself upon.

“The KIS tablet is the first of its kind in the industry. It has transformed the way Emirates’ 17,000 plus cabin crew interact with each other, and how they respond to the needs of 35 million customers annually. This award is testament to the competencies and commitment of our people, not only in IT but in other departments across the Emirates Group,” said Patrick Naef, Divisional Senior Vice President IT for The Emirates Group and Head of mercator.

“There is a lot more to travel than just getting from point A to B, and Emirates is always seeking new ways to do things better. We are constantly investigating the possibilities presented by technology to improve operational efficiencies and enhance the travel experience for our passengers at every touch point. From baggage tracking technologies to cloud computing solutions and day-to-day passenger operations, at Emirates airline and the across Group, we invest in advanced technologies and in developing our own capabilities so that we are ahead of the competition, and future ready.”
