Pathway to resilience: Rebuild confidence. Restore travel. Fly responsibly.

Bringing together Europe’s leading airline CEOs, policymakers and global aviation leaders

A4E CEOs will return to Brussels to meet EU policymakers, industry leaders and the press face-to-face for the 6th annual A4E Aviation Summit, held in partnership with FlightGlobal.

Two years on, aviation’s turbulent COVID-19 recovery continues. Which policies are critical for EU airlines’ recovery? And who will fund the post-pandemic aviation ecosystem? Meanwhile, the emergence of new COVID-19 variants continues to test the EU’s successful Digital COVID Certificate system, with diverging national rules, restrictions and requirements sowing confusion amongst passengers and threatening to hamper any chances for a return to pre-pandemic travel rules.

In parallel, new Green Deal legislation and negotiations on key decarbonisation policies are moving forward. Hear leaders discuss how the sector can best tackle the myriad of challenges ahead this year– and what policymakers can bring to the table, as well, in helping airlines deliver for their passengers.
