Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO, spoke at the IATA Ops Conference event in Copenhagen, Denmark on April 18. In his remarks, he urged aviation stakeholders to take advantage of the numerous opportunities to communicate with policymakers on developments that are vital to enabling aviation to support economic growth and job creation in the areas of:

  • Infrastructure
  • Regulation and
  • Emerging Safety Challenges

We’ve been less successful in advocating with politicians who ultimately control the purse strings for essential infrastructure investments and structural changes,” said Tyler.
