We are looking for developers, designers, marketers, aviation experts, and business-savvy individuals to team up and disrupt the aviation industry.

THE HACK

Do you have an idea that will revolutionize the passenger journey?

THEME

Then this is the event for you. The theme of the hackathon is Passenger Solutions - we want to see you bring your expertise to take the customer experience to the next level.

When you arrive at PaxTechHack, you will have the choice of participating in just one of two challenges. We are looking for innovative ideas, something completely different from what’s currently out there—a real game-changer!

Each challenge winner will be awarded 5000€!

THE CHALLENGES

INFLIGHT PASSENGER COMMUNITY CHALLENGE

Sometimes you can sit on a flight for hours without even exchanging a word to the passenger seated next to you. It’s time we started looking at the rest of the flight as a community, rather than strangers. How can you connect passengers through developing such a digital community?

BOOST AIRPORT RETAIL CHALLENGE

We all know those airline passengers that go through security and head straight to the gate to be first to board the plane. For retailers, this means missing out on a customer that doesn’t have time to browse the duty-free shops. What digital solution can you produce to ensure these early-birds at the gate become airport retailer consumers?

WHY JOIN?

  • Maximum exposure at the Passenger Technology Solutions Exhibition
  • Networking opportunities with some of the biggest names in the aviation industry
  • Complimentary tickets to Passenger Technology Solutions Exhibition, plus entrance to demos and conferences
  • Exclusive prizes for the winning teams
