World Air Transport Summit

Today (Monday 20 June) sees the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of IATA (International Air Transport Association. The World Air Transport Summit (WATS) opens immediately following the AGM.

A highlight will be the third edition of the Diversity and Inclusion Awards sponsored by Qatar Airways.

The event (19-21 June) attracts the industry’s most senior leaders from among IATA’s 290 member airlines, as well as leading government officials, strategic partners, equipment suppliers, and media.

In addition to the updated industry economic outlook, key topics to be addressed include: the War in Ukraine and its implications for the globalized world; the challenges to achieving sustainability, including net zero carbon emissions by 2050, and reducing the use of single use plastics, allocating scarce airport capacity, and ensuring safe carriage of lithium batteries. New for 2022 is a CFO Insights Panel.

WATS will also feature the popular CEO Insights Panel moderated by CNN’s Richard Quest and featuring Adrian Neuhauser, CEO, Avianca; Pieter Elbers, CEO, KLM; Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive, Qatar Airways; and Jayne Hrdlicka, CEO, Virgin Australia.

BTN plans to report on the conference next week but it can also be followed on the TWITTER column @BTNewsupdate and twitter.com/iata.
