The GHI Big Debate Webinar - 28 May

Your survival kit for the Covid-19 crisis

Sign up for our free-to-attend webinar on 28 May and enjoy exclusive operational hints and tips from panellists at JBT Aerotech, AirAsia, SATS and Sobie Aviation

Bruised and battered aviation operators are facing any existential threat as they try to ride out the Covid-19 crisis. Recent GHI research found 34% of stakeholders describing their business mood as ‘pessimistic, taking a huge financial hit and braced for worse’. Around 64% of sector leaders anticipate depleted flight volumes for up to two years and cash flow reserves are under severe stress.

So, what can our industry do to bolster its position and outlast the pandemic. How will social distancing take shape in the ground handling environment and are we about to see a transformational market shift towards more integrated stakeholder collaboration?

Unfortunately, GHI can’t physically host a conference session to discuss these crucial topics. However, in a spirit of defiance and ongoing collaboration among the aviation community – GHI will hold a virtual conference session on the same date instead.

We invite you to join GHI’s free to attend Webinar, which is available to all of our loyal conference delegates and their colleagues.
