Qatar Airways Cargo to host IATA Cargo Hackathon


Qatar Airways Cargo will host the next IATA One Record Hackathon to be held from November 24 to 26 in Doha.

The hackathon is an around-the-clock event that brings together teams of developers to work on innovative solutions that address an industry challenge.

Solutions are presented to a jury, and the winners have the opportunity to share and communicate their solutions to the industry.

Teams are asked to build solutions to enhance cargo products using the ONE Record data sharing standard and API connections.

The hackathon aims to develop new ideas based on industry standards; disruption by inventing new products and services; and enhancement of standards by exposing them to the developer community.

Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo at Qatar Airways, said: “We look forward to welcoming innovative minds to Qatar to be a part of this exciting weekend and have the chance to churn out great ideas for the industry and also explore our diverse and wonderful city. “Qatar Airways Cargo is at the forefront of advanced technology and is continuously investing in innovative solutions to enhance operational efficiency, visibility and security, and improve overall performance.”

Brendan Sullivan, global head of cargo, IATA added: “Digitalisation experts from around the world will gather to put the IATA data sharing standard ONE Record through its paces and demonstrate innovative use cases that will change air cargo.”

IATA’s hackathon programme was launched in 2015, initially focusing on airlines’ retailing capabilities. The scope has since evolved to address other areas including environment, payment, cargo, and accessibility, among many others.
