Who We Are

EONA-X is a dedicated European data space for Mobility, Transport, and Tourism, developed as part of the Gaia-X initiative. Founded by prominent leaders such as Aéroport Marseille Provence, Air France-KLM Group, global travel technology provider Amadeus, Groupe ADP, Renault Group, and SNCF Group, EONA-X aims to revolutionize the way data is shared and utilized in the mobility and tourism sectors.

Our Purpose

The purpose of EONA-X is to enhance user experiences in mobility and tourism by providing a seamless integration of travel data across various modes of transportation, including aircraft, bus, train, car, bicycle, and even pedestrian pathways. We aim to address the industry’s key challenges by ensuring data sovereignty, guaranteeing privacy, and nurturing trade. 

Our data space covers not only passenger travel but also goods transport, such as luggage and cargo activities. By improving the quality of information available to passengers and visitors in Europe, EONA-X seeks to unlock economic development opportunities and elevate service standards, ultimately contributing to a more efficient and enjoyable travel experience for all.

 

Our Values

EONA-X aligns with the Common European mobility data space strategy, which emphasizes that “Wide availability and use of data in public transport systems has the potential to make them more efficient, green, and customer-friendly. Data use to improve transport systems is also a central feature of smart cities.” . This initiative aims to set a global example by creating a trusted space for protected data that respects citizens' rights (GDPR) and adheres to the principles of the Green Deal. By fostering a secure and compliant environment for data sharing, EONA-X seeks to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of transport systems, making them more responsive to the needs of users. The initiative also aims to support the development of smart cities, where data-driven solutions can lead to improved urban mobility and a higher quality of life for citizens. Through these efforts, EONA-X demonstrates its commitment to both technological innovation and environmental responsibility, positioning itself as a leader in the mobility and transport sectors.
