IATA’s 78th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit (WATS) is taking place on 19-21 June 2022 in Doha, Qatar, hosted by Qatar Airways.
This major event for aviation gathers the top leadership from airlines, the aviation value chain and governments as the aviation industry faces complex and dynamic operating, business and geopolitical environments.
The recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 continues to take shape, albeit at different speeds in different parts of the world. The war in Ukraine is impacting fuel prices, altering operations, and challenging the globalization which aviation’s efforts have underpinned. A broader sustainability agenda is emerging as aviation moves forward with its commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Technology is creating new opportunities to improve customer centricity. And, as all stakeholders including governments, adapt to ever-changing industry realities, finding a smart regulatory approach remains a top priority.
