Future of Air Transport

A very powerful group of speakers has been lined up for a two-day conference at London Millennium Mayfair Hotel 3-4 December, the Future of Air Transport.

Introducing the conference will be the former Director General and Chief Executive Officer of IATA, Giovanni Bisignani.  Amongst other topics he will discuss the European Emissions trading scheme.

Also due to speak is James Hogan, Chief Executive Officer, Etihad; Wang YingMing, Chairman and President, Hainan Airlines; John Slosar, Chief Executive Officer, Cathay Pacific; Steve Ridgeway, who holds a similar position at Virgin Atlantic and Dr Temel Kotil, Chief Executive Officer, Turkish Airlines.

On what one might call “the technical front” Isaiah Cox, Chief Executive Officer, WheelTug (see below), will discuss the latest regarding aircraft that are self-driven on the ground, giving no emissions, whilst Mary Veronica Tovsak Pletersi, Director for European and International Carbon Markets, DG Climate Action, European Commission, will bring us further up to date on this vexed question, whilst Paul Gretch, Director, Office of International Aviation, US Department of Transport, will offer the American viewpoint.  Jonathon Counsell, Head of Environment, British Airways, is another speaker.  The impressive full programme and line-up is on the website. http://marketforce.eu.com/conferences/air12/programme
