IAR China Aviation Summit at the Aviation Festival

China Partner
Institute for Aviation Research



China is one of the largest and fastest growing aviation markets in the World. Whilst the Western aviation & tourism sectors and suppliers continueto show considerable interest in the Chinese market it has generally failed to understand how the Chinese airline industry operates, the nuances of the market and how Chinese airlines both thinks and operates.

What is the IAR China Summit? 

The summit will be a half-day executive level aviation summit that brings together key decision makers across major network airlines and low-cost carriers in China.

The Summit, created by the Institute for Aviation Research (IAR), with support from Terrapinn, will deliver practical advice to support the commercial objectives of the aviation industry, aviation suppliers, destinations and travel companies looking to build effective and long-lasting relationships with China’s airline industry.
