PROGRAMME

Enhancing Aviation’s Value for Tomorrow

Commercial air travel has been a major catalyst for social, cultural, and economic development. All around the world, aviation has connected peoples, enabled economic growth, and increased cultural exchanges for the betterment of societies and communities.

Air transport demand is projected to grow strongly over the next two decades. However, future growth will be confronted with several challenges. These include expanding airspace, airports, regulatory and workforce capacity to meet the growth in air travel demand; pursuing the upsides of adopting new technology while managing the downsides; and mitigating the impact of air transport on the environment. The aviation community needs to address these challenges and enhance the value of aviation so as to create the conditions for sustainable growth for future generations.
