Aimed at solving the airline industry’s biggest challenges, the Air Pitch Startup Competition is a new platform for innovators working to revolutionize the traveler experience, help airlines operate more efficiently, and shape the future of flight.

We’ve partnered with the Accenture Amadeus Alliance to launch our first-ever startup competition: Air Pitch, which is aimed at identifying the next generation of disruptors in the travel industry.

The Air Pitch Startup competition is for US-based startups in all funding stages who are developing solutions that can solve the airline industry’s biggest problems. If your startup is working to provide an innovative solution for the airline industry — like developing effective ways to inspire and acquire customers, using intelligent solutions to create exceptional travel experiences, or helping airline operations run more efficiently — we want to hear from you.

The grand prize for the top start up includes a design sprint at the Accenture Amadeus Alliance Innovation Center in Dublin, $5,000.00, access to Skift Research, and more.
