Aviation MENA 2020
October 18 - October 19
The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) has been a catalyst in the aviation industry for more than a decade, with the major Gulf carriers driving change in aircraft technology and passenger experience along with eye-watering investments in business aviation, oil and gas operations and aerostructure manufacturing.
But the MENA region and Turkey is much more than simply the Gulf states.
Aviation MENA will bring the whole region together with a summit and exhibition that will break down the ‘haves and have nots’ of aviation in the area and enable industry players from across the region to share their aspirations and plans.
Airlines from the re-emerging countries such as Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Libya will join the established players from Jordan, Morocco and Saudi Arabia to share thoughts and strategies and meet with the international audience and supply chain who want to work alongside them.
At the centre of the debate will be Egypt – the historic heart of the industry across the whole Arab world with its national carrier, EgyptAir – the summit host and partner in the event.
Issues like training standards and human capital, maintenance and safety, low-cost carrier versus legacy carriers, airports and ground handling will form the core of the summit discussions, with speakers from government, civil aviation authorities, airlines, airports and aviation services companies.
The event is a two-day summit and co-located exhibition; featuring over 100 global aviation companies.
