Tweets of the day:

@BFlinter Key to better border management is collaboration between airlines, airports and governments #ATIS2016.

@Inflight_Steph The buzzword of the #ATIS2016 today has definitely been ‘single token’ travel, which will be enabled by IoT.

@Inflight_Steph The aim is for your password and your information never to leave your device – your phone is the key, interacting with other tech #ATIS2016.

@JetwayMJ .@SITAonline sees future where passenger #travel data, docs, passports etc. combined in “single token” #ATIS2016.

@JetwayMJ #Airlines currently charged $4160 for each passenger arriving in US without proper identification #ATIS2016 #cybersecurity #airportsecurity.
