Hamad International Airport (HIA) is set to participate in the Passenger Terminal Expo 2019 (PTE), the world’s leading international airport conference and exhibition, taking place in London on 26, 27, and 28 March 2019.

 

PTE, the most highly-regarded airport conference in the world, attracts over 7000 senior airport, airline, aviation authority, government and related business executives from all over the world to debate current issues, exchange ideas, and forge new business relationships across the airport and aviation industry.

PTE, as A platform for knowledge-sharing and learning from best practices, has a foothold in shaping the future of the aviation sector by tackling the most pressing issues we’re facing today.”

“HIA has, in a few short years, become recognized as a leading international airport for it’s operations, facilities, and passenger experience excellence. Part of what shapes our success is the willingness not only to learn from key players in the industry, but to offer our expertise and viewpoints to contribute to the success of the global airport industry. We are honoured to represent Qatar at PTE this year, and look forward to working with other participants”, he added.

During the first day of the event, Sujata Suri, HIA’s Vice President of Strategy and Developement, will chair the panel discussion on customer service and passenger experience, offering insight into how the fast-changing needs of travellers impacts the airport’s business development strategy, strategic investments, and the overall passenger experience.

Ioannis will discuss the next phase of HIA’s expansion plan which will accommodate nearly double of HIA’s current capacity.
