Air transportation trends in Emerging Europe and Western Europe

Press Release Date 08.10.2019

Global passenger traffic is expected to double over the next 20 years. The pace of growth will vary by region, slowing down across mature economies and accelerating in developing and emerging markets, according to analysts.

Government policies will play an important role in promoting competitiveness and growth in air transport — there is a tangible opportunity to stimulate air transport growth in emerging Europe through favourable policies for the benefit of consumers and local economies.

During the first day of the Wings of the Future international aviation forum, Kate Markhvida from IATA’s Economics team will discuss the trends and key drivers of air transport growth globally and in emerging Europe. Kate will also share IATA’s views on the challenges facing the industry and opportunities to promote sustainable growth.

This year’s Wings of the Future forum is to take place from October 30-31 at Moscow’s Renaissance Monarch Center Hotel.

Based on the success of last year’s experience of conducting a parallel stream for the heads of PR and marketing departments, we are pleased to announce that the draft of the workshop agenda for this year has been published.

The key topics for this year are:

  • Modern communication crises in the industry — fighting without rules
  • (CSR / ESG): Sustainability: New Reputation Management Laws

A parallel stream will take place on the first day of the Forum, October 30th.
