The CEE region is currently among the most dynamic regions in Europe. Its aviation industry is experiencing a rapid growth which follows the trend among Western European countries. Strong industrialisation in the recent years along with more disposable income is driving the aviation sector on both corporate and recreational levels.
Flag carriers are maintaining growth and are turning profitable due in part to lower oil prices. And so LCC carriers are set for exponantial growth. Our aim is for the conference to be the Business Forum in the long run for the region’s industry leaders and in doing so, to offer a strong networking opportunity to do business and to exchange best practices.
More than 10 sessions and presentations, case studies and best practice sessions will take place on 3rd-4th September. IATA, ERA and Europe’s prominent Airline and Airport Heads will discuss the latest trends and deliver their best practice models with the aim to take the CEE region to a next level.
The 2015 CEE Aviation Annual Conference will provide a forum to reflect on the relationship between the internationalization through aviation and institutional responses to these important global challenges.
Conference subthemes include:
• Revised EU state aid guidelines
• GDS cooperation with traditional and LCC carriers
• Digital Trends for the Aviation Industry
• Repositioning the airline models
• Best route development practices
• Regional Airports as the catalyst in the regional growth etc.
