Miami – Miami will be the capital of the global air transport industry next week as its most senior leaders gather to discuss critical issues such as safety, security, sustainability, meeting passenger demands and revitalising the air cargo sector,” said Tony Tyler, director general and CEO of the International Air Transport Association (Iata).

Up to 1 000 delegates are expected to attend the global event hosted by American Airlines, FedEx, UPS and Airlines for America.

Iata announced on Thursday that US Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx will deliver a keynote address at the 71st Iata annual general meeting and world air transport summit taking place in Miami from June 7 to 9.
Iata is the global association of the world’s airlines, headquartered in Montreal, Canada and founded in Havana, Cuba in April 1945.

The AGM brings together CEOs and senior management of its 256 member airlines that carry some 83% of global traffic. Stakeholders from across the value chain will participate in the event, including leaders from governments, international organizations, aircraft manufacturers and other industry partners.
