The event will also comprise a virtual conference programme boasting over 30 hours of industry insight shared by Chief Executive Officers and other aviation experts. Attendees will hear directly from 12 airline CEOs such as Benjamin Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Air France-KLM; Robin Hayes, Chief Executive Officer of JetBlue Airways; Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic; Anko van der Werff, Chief Executive Officer of Avianca Holdings and József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air.
