The annual ACI Airport Exchange conference and exhibition kicked-off at Qatar National Convention Centre. The event commenced with addressing latest developments in the aviation sector. Themed ‘Beyond Airports 2020’, nearly 1,000 delegates from around the world are expected to attend the two-day conference.
HE Abdul Aziz Mohammed Al-Noaimi, chairman of Qatar Civil Aviation Authority, inaugurated the Exhibition Arena. Senior Qatar Airways Group representatives attending the inauguration included Patrick Muller, executive vice president, and Abdulaziz Al-Mass, senior manager, public relations and communications for Doha International Airport (DIA), and Nabeela Fakhri, vice president, HR Employee Services for Qatar Airways.
Attending delegates were briefed on how Qatar Airways and Hamad International Airport (HIA) aim to enhance the region’s air transport infrastructure and capacity, as well as set new standards for airport hubs regionally and internationally.
Ashish Jain, Qatar Airways senior vice president for group safety and security said: “Fundamentally, HIA arose from a need to increase Qatar’s aviation capacity. The new airport will keep pace with Qatar’s growth and actively contribute to this exciting era of cultural and economic development.”
Over the course of the event, DIA and Qatar Airways will shed light on how the HIA will deliver passenger experiences.
