Ask the Expert – What did you vote to discuss?

Find out the expert views on key topics currently impacting the global aviation industry. Our ‘Ask the Expert’ stories allow you to choose the subjects that the Routesonline digital content team will discuss with respected industry professionals.

We asked for your input last month on some of the current key aviation discussion points and the topics you wanted  us to discuss with experts in the industry.

Ahead of World Routes 2016 in Chengdu, China in late September, Routesonline will be holding a couple of interview sessions with Jeremy Robinson, partner at international law firm Watson Farley & Williams LLP to get a legal perspective on some of the major talking points in the industry.

Robinson, a regular speaker and panellist at our events, specialises in EU and UK competition law across all sectors. His work covers international merger control for mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures; distribution and licensing arrangements; restrictive agreements/abuse of dominance; competition compliance; state aid; sanctions; economic regulation of certain industry sectors, in particular aviation, transport, energy and utilities.

In our first of three interviews, Robinson will provide insightful views on the UK Brexit referendum and what it means for air service agreements and future connectivity to and from the UK. But for the others topics in the subsequent interviews will asked you, the Routesonline community, to tell us what you wanted to hear about.

You had six options:

  • Liberalisation and protectionism: which way are we going?
  • The rise of the Gulf carriers and the global response
  • Ever greater safety in the skies: regulatory developments
  • Making new connections in developing aviation markets
  • Managing capacity peaks and troughs through the economic cycle
  • Connecting aircraft finance to route development

As the adjacent poll shows, there were two clear winners... Making new connections in developing aviation markets and The rise of the Gulf carriers and the global response. Look out for this material appearing on Routesonline ahead of World Routes.
