IATA focuses on building sustainable future for ground operations
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that the 34th IATA Ground Handling Conference (IGHC) will take place in Paris, France from 31 May to 2 June 2022.
Under the theme - People, Purpose and Passion - Building a sustainable future for ground operations – the event will focus on improving implementation procedures and operations, forging sustainable new agreements and empowering the workforce to deliver lasting and environmentally sound solutions.
“The recovery from COVID-19 brings its challenges—including the need to address staff retention and attraction, effective training and just culture principles. The scaling-up of operations to meet demand is also an opportunity to improve efficiency, increase compliance with global standards, improve safety and environmental performance and accelerate efficiency gains with digitalization and automation. The discussions at this year’s IGHC will help all stakeholders in this critical part of the aviation value chain to align on the key components of its long-term sustainability,” said Monika Mejstrikova, IATA’s Director of Ground Operations.
IGHC brings together industry leaders from airlines, airports, ground service providers to manufacturers for networking and business development. The event provides a unique platform for the discussion and implementation of industry standards, policies and procedures.
