The three-day conference provided a golden opportunity for key players within IATA’s 240 member airlines to gather in person and share insights on important topics impacting the future of the airline industry such as eliminating single-use plastic: limiting air pollution and the importance of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Furthermore, Qatar Airways has signed an expansive codeshare agreement with Virgin Australia and saw the signing of three key Memorandums of Understanding with the IATA Environmental Assessment Program, IATA Postal Accounts Settlement System, and IATA Direct Data Solutions.
