ERA assembly this week

Airline alliances, joint industry ventures and partnerships will be the theme at this week’s three-day European Regions Airline Association (ERA) General Assembly, taking place in Juan Les Pins from tomorrow, 8 October.

Under the leadership of ERA director-general Montserrat Barriga and president Andrew Kelly of ASL Airlines Ireland, the main conference session will ask what is new for the industry and the lessons to be learnt from other regions and different business models.

Chaired by SAS vice-president external production Mikael Wångdahl, the session is expected to provide some stimulating conversations between senior leaders from the industry.

Panellists include Regional Airline Association USA president and CEO Faye Malarkey-Black and Valter Fernandes, managing director of TAP express, which is operated by Portugália.

ERA member companies will also be presenting their latest news and announcements during the event with the traditional Airline and Airport CEOs' Breakfast taking place at the start of the event.

This is scheduled for 08:00–09:15 on Wednesday, 9 October, in the Marriott Hotel, next to the conference centre, and is again sponsored by the Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation.

ERA member companies Airbus, ATR, DeHavilland Aircraft of Canada, Embraer, GE Aviation, Mitsubishi, Pratt & Whitney Canada and TrueNoord will be presenting their latest news and announcements, providing a great opportunity to speak to our member companies face-to-face.
