The editorial team has decamped to Cannes in the south of France for the Airline Business World Air Forum.
Also, check out our introductory video below and keep an eye on this blog as we post all the videos from the conference!
We’ll be hearing from the chief executives of Vueling, Aer Lingus, Royal Jordanian and Oman Air, along with US government official and regulation guru John Byerly.
Listen to the next video to hear Vueling chief executive Alex Cruz’s somewhat controversial views on how the stripped down airline product does not have a future…
I also caught up with Aer Lingus chief executive Christoph Mueller on how traditional and low-cost airline products are increasingly converging to the middle ground.
John Byerly, deputy US assistant secretary for transportation affairs, voices his views on how ownership and control should “not be a bargaining chip” and how China, South Africa, Russia top the USA’s Open Skies wish list.
Oman Air chief executive Peter Hill talks about how his mandate is to “put Oman on the map”.
