Airlines should work together on open source apps

Each airline has its own application. We need to interconnect these and we need to come up with open-source standards that can take a little bit of an app from Heathrow, a little bit of an app from Gatwick etc.” said Bulman.

He added: “This would allow us to create a very rich app that provides information about where my customer is going next time. Equally the airports should have an app that I can flow information into, and into British Airways’, for example.”
