Jared Simcox

General Manager, Australia

Scoot Airlines

 Jared’s roots have been firmly planted in all aspects of aviation. Migrating to Australia in 2012, a stint at Curry Aviation followed, but Jared’s last role, Wholesale Travel Manager at Groupon ANZ, gave him vital experience in distribution channels, and business during the digital revolution. He considers turning on-line business into offline revenue critical, in today’s aviation industry. That knowledge will be invaluable, further establishing Scoot in Australia with its planned long haul European expansion in June 2017.

“What really excited me about this role at Scoot, is that this company is out to challenge the status quo. Since Scoot’s launch in 2012, the highly visible, yellow liveried and quirky airline, has quickly risen to become a benchmark and trendsetter in the low-cost market segment,” said Jared.

Scoot is an airline for the young, the young-at-heart and the value-seeking. People who remember that travel is all about spontaneous discovery, connections and fresh experiences. Simply put, people with Scootitude. Operating a fleet of 14 brand new Boeing 787s, Scoot picked up Best Asia-Pacific Low Cost Carrier three years running. Scoot connects people across 59 cities in Asia, Europe, Australia and India with our fleet on Boeing 787 Dreamliners, and Airbus A320 and A319s. Operating from Sydney, Melbourne, The Gold Coast and Perth.

Artificial intelligence sprawls over an ever increasing terrain: from digital home assistants to self-driving cars, battlefield tactics to investment guidance. And now, AI looks to powering the skies. Algorithms are learning to predict delays, giving airports and airlines a better shot at avoiding them. Airlines like Scoot are using the tech to remake the ticketing process painless and turn the in-flight experience into a personalized joy. But the true promise sits in the cockpit, where AI autopilots could help manage the complex airline operations and even respond to the millisecond-urgency of unfolding cockpit crises.

Research here is young but developing quickly. In 2015, Boeing and Carnegie Mellon University launched the Aerospace Data Analytics Lab, a bid to use machine learning to spin massive piles of information into action item gold.

We are very excited to be hosting Jared Simcox and hearing his take on consumer driven emerging technology at Convergence 005 | SWITCH, on 18 September at Marina Bay Sands.
