Business Models. Technology. Innovation

The World Aviation Festival started in 2003 with the World Low Cost Airlines Congress, when low-cost carriers were changing the industry with revolutionary business strategies. 

Soon, the event started growing, and now it's one of the world’s largest aviation shows. The agenda has more than ten different content streams, that cater to every part of the aviation ecosystem. 

New business models are at the heart of our programme. We help the aviation industry keep up with new changes in the market and translate them into actionable take-aways, that drive innovation, experience and revenue. 

Over three days we'll feature 400 speakers from the world's largest airlines, airports and travel technology leaders, sharing their secrets, tips and lessons learnt. 

Whether you're in passenger experience, retailing, IT, digital transformation, distribution, loyalty, marketing, operations, communications or innovation, there's content tailored just for you.  

More than 150 technology providers will exhibit at the World Aviation Festival, so you can access hundreds of new solutions and innovations under one roof.
