Hello, my name is Thomas Tankiewicz and I welcome you to Ideas For Future TV - the show for everyone interested in novel & feasible ideas for our holistic and collective future. Our ideas and future scenarios presented here are of very high quality, as we develop them with software that creates an optimal mental state for creativity and idea development - so we always deliver you fresh thought goods ...


Tourism & Pricing

Original post from 14.05.2020: Tourism & Pricing


The airlines can develop attractive packages for business travellers and holidaymakers in cooperation with the tourism industry, which is also hard hit, that can already be booked now.  

Even if it is currently not yet apparent when the booked packages can actually be used, they would be applicable immediately after the corresponding relaxation of the current restrictions.  

In order to encourage customers to book, free and flexible cancellation with refund of all costs or the possibility of rebooking is a matter of course.  

The basic idea of this concept is that airlines and the tourism industry work closely together, to get the best for both industries.


Background information on this idea:

At the beginning of the pandemic, many airlines responded very flexibly to the resulting flight changes and cancellations, often to the benefit of their customers. Passengers had the choice of rebooking their flights at no additional cost, receiving vouchers for future flights or requesting a full refund of the airfare.

According to our original assessment, the Travel Fever of potential vacation flyers is expected to continue unabated. Accompanied by the gradual easing of travel restrictions at the beginning of the summer, this picture has been confirmed by full vacation planes. Many summer vacationers have taken advantage of the planning security offered by package tours to save themselves additional expense in the event of a flight change or cancellation. The associated hotel bookings were adjusted for the travelers, if necessary, by their tour operator in accordance with the new flight dates at no additional cost.


First applications of this idea:

With the relaxation of international travel restrictions, Helvetic Airways has already started to offer so-called pop-up flights - see also our idea on flying on demand. Here, passengers can book offers to attractive destinations with and without hotel.

Towards the end of the year, the major tourism providers, in line with our idea, are now also offering their customers deals with extremely flexible cancellation terms. In doing so, inexpensive vacation packages can already be booked in advance, from which the vacationers can still withdraw free of charge until shortly before the start of the trip next year.





1. the current situation of airlines in the context of the Corona pandemic

In this part of our project "Ideas for international airlines during and beyond the crisis". is about the question "What is the current situation of the airlines in the context of the Corona pandemic".


Hardly any other industry has been so visibly affected by the ongoing Corona pandemic as the airline industry. International air traffic came to a virtual standstill from one day to the next. The industry, which used to see over 100,000 aircraft movements a day worldwide, carrying vacationers, business people, commuters and cargo, is literally at a standstill. Even the effects of September 11 and the global economic crisis around 2009 on air traffic seem negligible in comparison.

Only the most necessary flights are currently being made, for example to bring people back to their home countries and, of course, cargo traffic, which has taken on a new significance as a result of the crisis. If you look at the sky these days, contrails have become a rarity. But the silence is deceptive. In the background, commercial airlines are working feverishly to relaunch or revitalize air traffic, so that as soon as possible they can once again bring passengers to their destinations safely and soundly in regular service - and connect the world.

How airlines will take off into the profit zone again in the future with necessary innovations and fresh ideas

A novel methodology of trend and future research paints a picture that goes beyond the established scenarios of the industry.

NEURONprocessing, a Hamburg-based company specializing in innovative idea development (ideation), has investigated the question of what "The possible future optimum for airlines - especially with regard to new business fields" might look like. The question is part of the project "Ideas for international airlines during and beyond the crisis"., as part of the COUNTER CRISIS IDEATION | IDEAS DEVELOPMENT FOR CRISIS MANAGEMENT initiative.

Based on the current situation, it is difficult for most airline executives to envision the possible development of the aviation industry over the next few years.

The current situation is forcing most airlines to focus mainly on acute issues, such as resuming air traffic as quickly as possible at present. This leaves the companies little or, in the worst case, no scope at all to deal with the development of a possible future optimum based on sustainable measures and innovations.

For this reason, the ideation specialist NEURONprocessing with its research-based NEURONprocessor Software The Institute for Idea Development set out to work out a possible optimum for the airlines, which could last beyond the crisis.

In general, a global market shakeout in favour of the renowned and state-owned airlines is already taking place during the crisis - and also in the following years.

As paradoxical as it may sound at first glance in the current situation, the spectrum of new possibilities (solutions) is very broad and accessible to every competitor on the global market who sees the crisis as an opportunity.

In addition, promising new business areas are emerging for airlines that are willing to innovate. These can be easily integrated into the airlines' newly created infrastructure in the change that is now urgently needed. In the project results, these lucrative business areas will be discussed in more detail.

These include:


  • A new environmental approach with real results that are transparent to society
  • Health care and related new services
  • Public innovation as an accelerator of sector-specific issues

Within the framework of the entire project "Ideas for international airlines during and beyond the crisis"., the following points were elaborated:

  1. The current situation of airlines in the context of the Corona pandemic.
  2. Other possible immediate measures by airlines for regular flight operations out of the crisis.
  3. Possible period of the critical phase of the pandemic for airlines.
  4. Steps that airlines need to take now, in parallel to the above immediate measures, to enable an entry into an optimal future development.
  5. The milestones of the airlines on the way to a possible optimum.
  6. The possible optimum for airlines beyond the crisis - especially with regard to new business areas.
  7. Currently still helping, missing ideas (in the sense of immediate measures) - and possible new business areas for aircraft manufacturers that are lucrative even beyond the crisis.
  8. Currently still helping, missing ideas (in the sense of immediate measures) - and possible new business areas for airport operators that are lucrative even beyond the crisis.
  9. Finally, it was examined whether there are striking differences in the application of the developed ideas in an international comparison.



The NEURONprocessor

The NEURONprocessor software builds a specific brainwave pattern in your brain during use, which enables the optimal mental state for idea development.

The structured approach of the NEURONprocessor method binds the waking consciousness, which gives the right brain hemisphere more space. This leads to a more extensive access to stored (expert) knowledge and an extremely increased intuition.

Because your brain is permanently busy with:

  1. Compliance with the method
  2. Selection (multiple choice)
  3. Writing
  4. Speaking (audio feedback)
  5. Optional sketches (or graphical interaction)

We can understand our right brain hemisphere here as a tool that provides us with information that we otherwise do not get to - or that we do not become aware of because the everyday or waking consciousness is always in front of it.
