Conference Room 2
With COVID-19's devastating impact across the aviation ecosystem, ground handlers around the world saw an unprecedented drop in operations and revenues. While some were able to successfully pivot some of their operations to cargo handling, many others were simply forced to shut down operations, liquidate assets or ask for bailouts from their government or airline and equity partners.
Ground handlers are now tasked with the important challenge of supporting logistics for billions of vaccines and rebuilding capacity as passengers return to the skies.
Join this conference to hear our experts discuss what are the key learnings from the pandemic that ground handlers must now implement, how has the industry changed over the last year and digital transformation and operational efficiency it must embrace to return to sustained growth.
Register online to get a chance to be invited to the in-person sessions from 24-26 May at the DWTC in Dubai.
