As the first business in the industry Stuttgart Airport founded an academic sustainability advisory council in February 2014 in order to discuss the strategic relevance of corporate responsibility topics. In annual meetings Stuttgart Airport asks the six member expert panel for their constructive and well-founded criticism and advice. Together they elaborate approaches for developing the fairport strategy.

In the face of current megatrends such as digitalization and electrification, the smart fairport STR project derived from one of our council meetings. In cooperation with a group of scientists and university students the airport operator outlines a vision of the “smart fairport STR” – the Stuttgart Airport of the future. The new forum works for example on how the passenger journey and visitor experience could be improved by integrating information networks in a smart way.
