CAPA – Centre for Aviation, the world’s most trusted source of market intelligence for the aviation and travel industry, is pleased to announce Malta as the next destination for its annual CAPA World Aviation Outlook Summit and Awards for Excellence.

Scheduled for 5-6 December 2019, the event is set to bring to together the biggest names in aviation from all over the world to discuss the future of the industry.

World Aviation Outlook Summit comes to Malta in 2019

Hosted by the Ministry for Tourism for Malta, the longstanding annual CAPA Summit will provide an in-depth, big picture overview of the global aviation outlook, as well as a review of trends and challenges facing the industry in the years to come.

Speaking at the closing of the 2018 World Aviation Outlook Summit in Berlin, Germany, CAPA Executive Chairman Peter Harbison said: “Malta is a destination steeped in culture and heritage, with a historic legacy unique in the Mediterranean. Malta’s aviation market continues to go from strength to strength and it is for this reason we are delighted to bring our World Aviation Outlook Summit to this vibrant location.”

The Summit, typically attended by prominent airline leaders, will cover a mix of aviation, global macroeconomic, travel and geopolitical topics across a range of keynotes and interactive panel discussions. The Summit complements CAPA’s existing suite of global aviation events and is expected to attract more than 250 senior level executives and decision makers from full service and low cost carriers, airports and industry suppliers.

Minister for Tourism Konrad Mizzi welcomed the announcement, stating: “The Maltese islands continue to play host to prestigious events and meetings from all over the world and we are pleased that the tradition will continue with CAPA’s 2019 World Aviation Outlook Summit in December. Malta is establishing itself globally as a leading nation for innovation and excellence and this is reflected in our booming aviation sector, which is a leader in maintenance, aircraft registration, leasing, finance, as well as crew and flight training.”

CAPA Global Aviation Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner

The Summit will also feature the global CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner, awards which have recognised strategic leadership in the aviation industry since 2002.

The awards are not driven by customer surveys or sponsorship and are researched by an independent panel of judges.
