The AGM will also hear about Disaster Response and Humanitarian Crises from Steven J. Smith, President and CEO of AIRLINK.

The organisation has helped people around the world by mobilising the aviation community to ensure emergency supplies and relief workers reach those impacted by natural disasters and other humanitarian crises around the globe.

These will be followed by a closed session dedicated for AACO members to discuss and decide on internal and administrative issues related to AACO’s work and on common strategic issues.

The afternoon session of 6 November will witness a presentation by  Chris Tarry, director and chairman of CTAIRA, on challenges and opportunities of Arab carriers.

It will be followed by the CEOs’ Panel which is a discussion panel gathering Chief Executive Officers and decision makers on strategic issues in the aviation industry. The panel will be moderated this year by Michael Bell, senior client partner in Korn Ferry.
