IATA 78th Annual General Meeting to Take Place in Doha

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that its 78th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit will take place  in Doha, Qatar, during June 19-21.

Both events will be hosted by Qatar Airways. This will be the second time that the global gathering of aviation’s top leaders will be held in Qatar; the first being in 2014.

Originally, the 78th IATA Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit were planned for the same dates in Shanghai, China, hosted by China Eastern Airlines. The decision to change the venue reflects continuing Covid-19 related restrictions on travel to China.

“This year’s AGM will be an important opportunity for aviation’s leaders to reflect on the shifting political, economic, and technological realities facing air travel as the industry’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic gathers pace,” said Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General.

IATA  represents some 290 airlines comprising 83 percent of global air traffic.
