International Airlines Group (IAG) is inviting Israeli start-ups to participate in a dedicated pitch day for a chance to partner with a global leader in the aviation industry. IAG is looking for innovative start-ups focused on products and ideas that can be utilised in the following areas:
Logistics automation – There are many critical functions that are still carried out manually at airports including processes within baggage, aircraft stand and airfield operations. IAG is looking for start-ups that can automate these processes with solutions focused on improving operational performance in the context of aircraft turn around. We are looking for automation technologies related to robotics, driverless vehicles, machine vision, artificial intelligence and more. The benefits of automation can include: improved safety, reduced equipment damage and better punctuality.
Identity Management & Biometrics – Customers today still have to walk through the airport needing to stop and present documents and passes. In IAG’s vision, the customer’s entire journey - from booking to departure, boarding, transfer, arrival and return journey - is seamless and smooth, whilst still being secure and accurate. As the main operator of Heathrow’s Terminal 5, IAG are interested in ways that can unify the entire customer experience and are willing to
explore early stage company and technologies, alongside established solutions that can be adapted to the airport environment.
Selected start-ups will have the opportunity to present their products and ideas to an IAG panel in Israel on Monday 18th March 2019. Each start-up will have a 30-minute slot: 15 minutes to present their idea and 15 minutes to explore how it may be designed, developed, trialled or implemented within our company.
IAG may decide to take your ideas further by organising a trial of the technology to understand potential and if appropriate develop a business case and roll it out. Start-ups may also be considered for Investment through IAG’s multi-million pound investment fund or the Hangar 51 Accelerator programme.

➢ Successful applicants will be invited for a dedicated 30 min slot on Monday 18th March 2019, scheduled to take place in central Tel Aviv.
