In the wake of rising air traffic and development of new airports, the Airport Authority of India Thursday asked its officials to introduce digital transformations to make flying safer and think of newer ways to reduce wasteful expenditure.
The authority said this on the first of a two-day conference of its top officials here to discuss the current business scenario of the aviation sector and form strategies to achieve various goals of its corporate plan.

AAI Chairman Guruprasad Mohapatra in his keynote address appreciated the work done by the authority's functional and airport heads in improving airport infrastructure and passenger facilities, according to an AAI statement.
"In the wake of rising air traffic in the country and development of new airports, he (Mohapatra) encouraged participants to think of newer ways to implement sustainability initiatives, reduce wasteful expenditure, introduce digital transformation and make flying safer for all," it said.
The purpose of this annual conference is to "apprise senior leaders of the current business scenario and strategies to achieve corporate plan, vision and mission", the statement said.
The theme for this year's conference is 'Sustainability for Future Operations, in Financial, Operational and Environmental Domains'.This is the second edition of this annual conference.
