Airline Cost Conference

Postponed to Q4, 2020

The 2020 edition of the Airline Cost Conference (ACC), initially planned for August 2020 will be postponed to Q4, 2020. The new dates will be announced as the situation allows and the agenda may be adapted in light of the COVID-19 crisis.

The 8th edition of Airline Cost Conference (ACC) will be heading to San Francisco, and should happen in the eve of the Aviation Data Symposium, a major digital aviation event.

During challenging times the Industry is facing with COVID-19 these days, staying lean and efficient becomes even more essential for each and every Airline.

Having emerged after the 2012 global economic crisis, ACC has become the best forum to learn and discuss ways to practice Cost Excellence - through sharing knowledge, ideas and practical cases on achieving operational efficiencies.

The following topics will be covered, among many:

  • What is Cost Excellence and how to implement it?
  • What does it take to setup and manage cost efficient airline?
  • How to streamline operations and achieve real savings?
  • Environmental implications and fuel costs – are there further opportunities to improve?
  • How digital solutions drive Airline cost efficiency?
  • What are the different ways to improve Airline financial health?

We will be expecting top-notch speakers to learn from, while exchanging within innovative session formats to enhance interactive discussions. Our goal is that each one of you will leave the event by bringing back a bit of hope and inspiration to your airline.

Destination: San Francisco, CA

San Francisco is well-known for its hilly terrain, Victorian architecture, scenic beauty, summer fog, and great ethnic and cultural diversity. These are only a few of the aspects that make San Francisco one of the most visited cities in the world.

Probably the most recognizable landmark in San Francisco and one of the most famous bridges in the world, the Golden Gate Bridge, is one of the major road routes into and out of the city.

San Francisco

Within the center of the city, the famous cable cars run up and down the hills of San Francisco between Market Street and Fisherman's Wharf and offer quite a ride. The Bay Area is also home to some of the world's finest wine country, including Napa Valley and Sonoma, plus waterfront towns, dramatic beaches, and the tech-savvy southern end of the bay known as the Silicon Valley, where lunchtime ideas at Google, Facebook, and Apple, turn into the next brilliant innovation.
