Dublin hosts 72nd IATA Annual General Meeting


GENEVA, Switzerland – The 72nd IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit will take place in Dublin, Ireland, from Wednesday 1 June to Friday 3 June 2016.

Program Highlights

This year’s AGM takes place against a backdrop of generally rising industry financial health but also a growing regulatory burden. Security, safety, and environment issues, however, remain top of the industry agenda. The long-tern trend shows safety is steadily improving, but recent tragedies reinforce the importance of working together to fully understand and reduce the risk of future occurrence. The industry also faces a vital year at ICAO with the decision in September on whether to implement a global market-based measure for aviation.

These issues will be addressed by the industry’s top leaders at the IATA AGM, which is open to accredited media.

Program highlights will include:

• The IATA Director General’s Report on the Industry

• Updated Economic Outlook

• CEO Insight Panel

• Panel Discussions on Cyber Security and the Environment

• Media Briefings on key industry topics
