It works on solving world's greatest problems through a technology-driven community of students, entrepreneurs, and government. IncubateIND is organizing this hackathon in partnership with India's finest full-service airline, Vistara.

"Vistara is the first Indian airline to have built an end-to-end IT infrastructure on Cloud. We're adopting the latest technologies to drive innovation across avenues - from maximising convenience for travellers across customer touch points to simplifying internal processes that lead to increased productivity and cost-saving. Technology will help bring about disruptive changes in the aviation industry, some of which we hope to discover at the Vistara Hackathon," said Ravinder Pal Singh, Chief Information and Innovation Officer, Vistara.

The 'Vistara Hackathon' will involve 20 teams from each city that will compete with each other to create new applications and tools to address aviation-related challenges in areas such as, tracking traveller behaviour, personalization of air travel, intelligent crowd monitoring at airports, system integration with third-party APIs and software, in-flight entertainment and intelligent customer targeting, amongst other challenging aspects. The solutions submitted at the 'Vistara Hackathon' will be reviewed by a panel of technology and aviation experts who will hand-pick winners, based on originality, the potential for scalability, and successful execution.

The facility’s location also leverages PSA’s parts supplier base and facility operations to support just-in-time inventory. This move towards digitised inventories reduces the need to hold excess inventory, which lowers storage costs, while shortening turnaround time from weeks to days due to improved availability of spare parts. In the long run, PSA will expand the scope of these services to the wider maritime industry, including ship owners, to help build its business adjacencies.
