On this episode, we talk Shashank Nigam, Founder & CEO of SimpliFlying. Rather than our typical interview style, Shashank and I have a conversation that is more likely to be heard at a conference happy hour, rather than on conference stage. Our conversation circles around a hypothetical situation of an airline merging with a hotel chain and what each could bring to the table. However, we don't just leave it at an unnamed hotel chain - we're talking specifically about Airbnb (arguably the biggest hotel chain). We talk about which airlines would be a good match for an Airbnb partner, as well as end with our top pick.

We're still experimenting with episode formats and this episode is no different.

Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System


Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System

Airports face a host of unique industry challenges, such as meeting efficiency regulations and seeking out the best maintenance practices to reduce costs and keep operations flowing. In today’s current economic climate, any potential cost savings can go a long way. 

In 2019, Alaska’s Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) sought to modernize its equipment and operations. They were dissatisfied with the performance of the gearmotors on their baggage transport conveyors and began searching for new suppliers. Regal approached FAI with a solution that could improve equipment performance and simplify maintenance, with the added benefit of energy cost savings: the Hub City® MOD Drive™ system.

This white paper discusses the hardware deployed, the test results and the annualized expectations for ROI.
