The inaugural Skift Aviation Forum will be a fast-paced, deep dive into the business of aviation, examining the industry’s unique and powerful connections to the larger ecosystem of travel. The event will bring together Skift’s editorial and research insights on the broader travel industry with the depth and authority of Airline Weekly — the highly influential global business newsletter consumed by CEOs and senior executives across the airline industry.
Our signature “Skift Talks,” Executive QAs and deep-dive panels will probe the global, economic and technology trends that shape aviation with a mix of thought-provoking insights from the best creative and business minds from the broader travel communities including hospitality, cruising, tours, destinations and more.

It will prove to be a fresh and provocative event for leaders of the airline sector –as well as all travel verticals– to learn and engage with those driving the future of aviation.
