"Digital, simple, networked and individual – that's the new way to travel. And yet, in our dealings with each other, personal contact is equally important at least: a friendly welcome on board, a few kind words when providing a service, perhaps a special gesture – we all know how good that makes us feel. And so it should be our goal to combine the physical and digital experience, for I am certain that the human being, in his or her role as a person of confidence and someone we can look to for advice, will always be appreciated in an increasingly virtualised world."
