FlightPlan: Strategies for Recovery

FlightPlan – the aviation industry’s largest ever virtual initiative – returns for a second edition to bring the latest in expert analysis and debate regarding the future of air travel on 10 November 2020.

Hosted by Inmarsat and the leading international Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX), ‘FlightPlan: Strategies for Recovery’ will delve into the industry’s biggest challenges in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and explore strategies to accelerate a recovery.

The broadcast event is a follow-up to ‘FlightPlan: Charting a Course for the Future’, which aired during the first weeks of the global aviation crisis in April, bringing together a host of leading voices from across the industry. The hugely successful all-day livestream grew into a significant industry initiative, inspiring an audience of thousands from 100 countries worldwide, watching live and on demand.

Streamed interviews

Six months on, with aviation still in the depths of its most extreme crisis to date, the event will connect leaders on the digital stage once again, through a unique combination of streamed interviews, virtual panels, live discussion and audience interaction to find out what has been learned, which innovations give cause for optimism and what ideas can lead to aviation’s next chapter.

Discussion will be open and wide ranging, with an emphasis on technology and innovation, passenger experience, airline operations, sustainability and digital transformation. A key highlight will be the results of the largest global passenger confidence survey completed since the pandemic began.

Participants will include speakers from leading industry bodies such APEX, International Air Transport Association (IATA), and CAPA – Centre for Aviation, in addition to airlines such as Aeromexico, Air China, Air France, Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines, easyJet, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Oman Air, and Virgin Atlantic.
