International Air Safety Summit Dublin – One week to go

Held annually since 1947, the Flight Safety Foundation’s International Air Safety Summit is aviation’s premier safety summit, drawing as many as 325 representatives from 50 plus countries to exchange information and propose new directions for further risk reductions. The summit covers safety, training, practical solutions, management, human factors and other issues for scheduled airlines, manufacturers and equipment suppliers, trainers, flight crews, maintenance personnel and industry executives.

Willie Walsh, chief executive of International Airlines Group (IAG), will be the keynote speaker. Mr Walsh became chief executive of IAG in January 2011, joining from British Airways where he was chief executive from October 2005. IAG is the parent company of Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia, LEVEL and Vueling. It is one of the world’s largest airline groups with 547 aircraft flying to 268 destinations and carrying more than 100 million passengers each year. Previous to his role at British Airways, Willie was chief executive of Aer Lingus from October 2001. He joined the airline in 1979 as a cadet pilot and became a captain in 1990 before moving into management roles. Originally from Dublin, Willie is also chairman of the Ireland’s National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA).

This year the event is hosted by Aer Lingus and takes place in Dublin from 23rd-25th October, less that one week away.
