Aviation Leaders Assemble in Sydney for IATA's 74th Annual General Meeting
 

Dubai, UAE, May 31, 2018:  The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that leaders of the global air transport industry are gathering in Sydney, Australia, for the Association’s 74th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit. Hosted by Qantas, the event will include addresses by Sir Peter Cosgrove, Governor-General of Australia; Michael McCormack, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Transport; and Dr Fang Liu, Secretary General, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

“Sydney will be the capital of air transportation as aviation leaders gather for the 74th IATA AGM and World Air Transport Summit (WATS). The airline industry is in its ninth consecutive year of profitability. And solid progress is being made on the top priorities of safety, security and sustainability. The big issue of the day is infrastructure. A global infrastructure crisis is being complicated by governments considering an acceleration of private sector involvement in airports,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.

The IATA AGM and WATS is expected to bring together more than a thousand leaders in the sector, including CEOs and senior management from IATA’s diverse membership and the entire air transport value chain; as well as media..

A highlight of the World Air Transport Summit is the CEO Insight panel featuring Sir Tim Clark (Emirates), Peter Elbers (KLM), Rupert Hogg (Cathay Pacific) Christopher Luxon (Air New Zealand) and Calin Rovinescu (Air Canada). The panel will be moderated by CNN’s Richard Quest.

Topics to be addressed at the gathering include sustainable aviation fuels, airport privatization, benefits and risks of tourism, gender equality, making the best use of data, next steps on aviation security, and preventing human trafficking.
