FT aviation briefing

A special executive briefing hosted by the Financial Times and Inmarsat Aviation on “Sky High Economics” takes place in London on 12 September with the aim of quantifying commercial opportunities for the global airline industry.

The breakfast event is based on a report commissioned via LSE Consulting using data from recognised bodies including IATA in face of the technological  revolution facing the industry as aviation connectivity becomes more widespread.

Organisers say the event will help to show airlines how superior inflight broadband solutions will help to exceed passengers’ connectivity expectations and drive ancillary revenue opportunities.

Speakers include Spafax vice-president – development Maura McWalters Chacko; Dr Alexander Grous from the LSE Department of Management and the Department of Media and Communications, and Inmarsat vice-president aviation David Coiley.

Chaired by FT transport correspondent Tanya Powley, the briefing, to be held at Painters’ Hall, London EC4, will include a panel discussion and Q&A, and will end at about 11:40.  Attendance is by invitation only and anybody interested is invited to register in advance. Latest details on the agenda and application criteria are on the event website below.
