CAPA Airline Leader Summit

CAPA’s Airline Leader Summit in Dublin gathers the C-level executives of the region to explore the key transformational issues confronting the aviation industry, as airlines metamorphose to adapt to change:

  • How can FSCs regain their short haul markets from LCCs? – A CAPA “Boardroom” discussion in two parts
  • Disruption: Distribution and engagement – can airlines survive in their current form?
  • Are metal neutral JVs good for the industry, the travelling public and airports?
  • Do airline industry associations have a future? – and where do LCCs fit?
  • Can airlines and airports realistically continue to project high growth unless there are substantial breakthroughs in alternative fuels?
  • Are airlines on the wrong track with branding strategies?

CEOs from all regions and business models will debate the disruptive forces at work over the coming decade at the CAPA Airline Leader Summit
