Rebelroam

RebelRoam was voted the winner of the FTE and JetBlue Technology Ventures Startup Competition, which attracted almost 50 global entries. The four finalists exhibited and each delivered a pitch during day one of FTE Europe & FTE Ancillary shows, with RebelRoam emerging as the winner after a vote by attendees. RebelRoam revolutionises the onboard Wi-Fi experience by drastically improving Wi-Fi quality without requiring airlines to add to or change their existing network infrastructure.

Four airlines, one airport and a startup were rewarded for their customer experience and ancillary revenue excellence at the 2nd Future Travel Experience Europe Innovation Awards and Future Travel Experience Ancillary Awards in Dublin.

More than 500 of the travel and air transport industry's most forward-thinking executives - representing a global spread of airlines, airports, technology companies, industry vendors, startups, travel retail concessionaires, academia and associations - have gathered in Dublin this week for the co-located shows.
