World Low Cost Airlines Congress

The World Low Cost Airlines Congress is on its way again, taking off on 8-9 September at Islington’s Business Design Centre in London. One regular speaker probably missing this year will be Alex Cruz, previously of Vueling but just about the take up the reigns of the more-exalted British Airways. (see this issue)

David O’Brien, CCO of Ryanair, is expected to discuss the airline’s latest move and outline plans for the next five years of growth. Ryanair recently announced it is in discussions with long-haul carriers to provide feeder services, which would push the airline to a new level of growth in Europe.

Also listed to speak is Carolyn McCall of easyJet and Bjorn Kjos of Norwegian, kept apart at Gatwick, with the Luton-based airline now homing in at the North Terminal and the non-EU upstart always based in the much-revitalised original building. 
Called the ‘Global Aviation Experience’, the congress includes:

AirXperience: Passenger experience technology and innovation for the world’s airlines and airports.

Aviation IT Show: Technology innovation and performance for the world’s airlines, airports and partners.

Air Retail Show: Retail innovation and technology for airlines, airports and partners.

The Aviation Interiors Show: Innovation in design and interiors.

Aviation Marketing: Dedicated summit focused on marketing, data and analytics.
