CAPA held their Airlines in Transit Conference again this year in the beautiful surroundings of Powerscourt, Co. Wicklow, a European event which is consistently attended by the world’s main airline CEOs, OEM providers and airline influencers. One of the key topics for discussion this year was ‘Do Airline industry Associations have a future’.
CAPA’s Airlines in Transition (AIT) event in Dublin in Mar-2016 assembled a panel bringing together the heads of four of Europe‘s airline bodies (AEA, A4A, ELFAA and ERA), the head of its airport trade body (ACI Europe) and the experienced head of the Arab Air Carriers Organisation. Moderated by Kurt Knackstedt, President of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives, the panel addressed the relevance and future of these associations.
Below are a small selection of images taken over the two days of panel discussions and key note speaking engagements. For more information on CAPA, go to http://centreforaviation.com/
