The means by which the aviation industry can work together to promote its efforts to continue to reduce its carbon footprint will be a key topic for discussion at this year’s European Regions Airline Association (ERA) conference in Malta next month.
Scheduled for 25–26 March at the Westin Dragonara, the gathering will also debate what are the current and future steps being taken to ensure the industry continues to be environmentally responsible, while maintaining transport links for Europe.
The first session, ‘Achieving green and sustainable connectivity’, will be chaired by ERA president Andrew Kelly with Aviation Environment Federation director Tim Johnson as key speaker.
Air Iceland Connect managing director Arni Gunnarsson will be in the chair for session two on how ERA members' efforts can achieve their environmental targets, goals and expectations.
Also taking part are Braathens Regional Airlines head of sustainability Anna Soltorp, KLM Cityhopper managing director Warner Rootliep and ZeroAvia business development lead Julian Reinz.
Shannon Group strategic adviser Patrick Edmond will chair session three, on the industry’s efforts to achieve its environmental targets, goals and expectations, with IATA regional vice-president Europe Rafael Schvartsman also on the panel.
Session four will welcome inspirational speaker Ben Saunders, who in 2013–2014 led the first return journey to the South Pole on foot via Shackleton and Scott's route.
