34th Annual Conference

Theme: A Way Forward - Aviation Through A Sustainability Lens

Thank you to everyone who joined us in Lisbon, Portugal, November 9-11, 2022, as we explored and learned about what is coming in the world of aviation and sustainability, and how IAWA members can help champion A Way Forward.

As we move out of two years of disruption and uncertainty, a new opportunity awaits aviation. In the near future, there will be an introduction of rules in finance, governance and policy, where the core focus will be on ensuring companies and countries create a better future together. These new rules will empower diversity and inclusion, as well as the health and safety of employees, customers and communities. Advanced thinking and planning will give the aviation industry the opportunity to continue to provide the world with connection to friends, family, cultures and commerce, all while improving our footprint on the planet.
