The first day of the CAPA Qatar Aviation, Aeropolitical and Regulatory Summit kicked off yesterday (February 5) at the Sheraton Hotel in Doha, Qatar.
CAPA – Centre for Aviation (CAPA), part of Aviation Week Network, is the leading provider of independent aviation market intelligence, analysis and data services covering worldwide developments.
The event, held in the presence of the President of Qatar’s Civil Aviation Authority, HE Abdulla bin Nasser Turki Al-Subaey, was attended by ambassadors, officials and senior executives from the aviation industry.
Delivering the keynote address on the first day of the conference was chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, Akbar Al Baker.
“The timing of this years’ summit is perfect to engage in fruitful discussions and constructive debate,” Al Baker said. “More than ever, our industry continues to show great levels of resilience in the face of adversity and disruption. At the same time, we remain a positive and constructive voice in improving regulatory frameworks across regions, especially in the areas of sustainability and air liberalisation.
“One of my core beliefs is that a liberalised aviation sector can be a great catalyst for global economic and human development. At Qatar Airways, we believe in connecting people with no borders, only horizons,” he added.
The CAPA Qatar Aviation, Aeropolitical and Regulatory Summit, which concludes today (February 6), features more than 40 expert speakers from across the airline, legal and government sectors, all of whom discuss and investigate the latest developments in international aviation regulation, both regionally and internationally.
