A Sneak Peak on AME’s Aviation & Aeropolitical Affairs Day – Dead Sea, Jordan

The aviation industry is one of the most resilient and agile industries in the world. During the past decade, airlines have been facing huge economic challenges ranging from regional political instability and global economic slowdown to natural disasters. In addition to “unsmart” regulations, the rising taxes and charges have continued to be a major source of cost instability. Yet despite all these challenges, the aviation industry continues to grow and evolve across the travel industry.

To mark an important milestone in the aviation industry and under the patronage of his Royal Highness Prince Faisal Bin Al Hussein and the kind hosting of Royal Jordanian, IATA will hold its joint AME Aviation & Aeropolitical Affairs Day in collaboration with the Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO), on October 04th – 5th, 2017. . This regional event will be convened under the theme "Disrupting through Innovation" and will bring together 200+ distinguished aviation decision makers and influencers from across Africa, The Middle East and the globe, comprising of airlines, airports, civil aviation authorities, air navigation service providers, travel agencies and aircraft manufacturers and government agencies.

The event will tackle crucial issues facing the aviation industry globally and regionally such as:

  • Aviation Security: is the industry up to the evolving challenges and opportunities? 
  • How airlines are managing financially during tough times? 
  • New & Emerging Technologies Transforming Aviation, 
  • The future of aviation & economies,
  • Aero political and Regulatory challenges and opportunities: what changes do we want to see and what lies ahead? 
  • Striking a balance between competition and regulations: How to get the right balance and establish the right rules?
  • And much more

The conference will be held at the luxurious Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and below you can find a sneak peak of the hotel, where our participating delegates will be enjoying their stay in comfort and tranquility, while having the proper setup to contribute to a successful industry.
