Achievements
2020: 
Horizontal integration: a) integrated vision crucial on AirRail (intermodality Air + Rail +Airports + Governments). Since AirRail is an European Union priority, it enforces the need to create integrated vision to develop services efficiently, examples: organizing baggage at the airport; branding AirRail. b) integrated systems. Rail systems need to be integrated or linked to optimally sell and market products, example: revenue management systems (rail systems sell only 3 months before departure while airlines sell 11 months before departure), IT systems (exchange info on delays, travel info) c) ownership/stake in partners, in order to have more influence on strategic decisions to develop partnerships successfully example: route capacity decisions. When airlines + railways still think individually, it could be easily decided by railways to stop a route without consulting the airline. Ownership/voting rights would solve this threat.
