Stakeholders to discuss airlines’ survival amid tough environment

Stakeholders in Nigeria’s aviation industry would discuss ways airlines can survive challenging operating environments and remain profitable at the 28th edition of the Annual Conference of the League of Airport and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC).

Themed ‘Aviation Survivability Amidst a Challenging Macro-Economic Environment,’ the Conference will hold on 26th July, 2024 at Providence Hotel, GRA, Ikeja.

The theme of this year’s conference was informed by the challenging state of the country’s economy which has amplified the already existing constraints to growth and development of Nigeria’s aviation industry in form of poor access to forex, weakening currency, high fuel costs, maintenance costs, poor airports infrastructure, regulatory constraints, growing manpower demands, technology upgrade, passenger comfort, among other issues that require urgent attention of industry stakeholders.

The conference presents an opportunity for organizations to highlight its activities as it is expected to attract over 200 aviation industry professionals cutting across the aviation agencies, security agencies, international and domestic airlines operating in Nigeria, aviation support services, including travel service providers and tour operators

LAAC is Nigeria’s aviation media umbrella body saddled with the responsibility of ensuring effective media coverage and practice in the aviation industry, and the LAAC Annual Seminar has over the years, made an unquantifiable impact on Nigeria’s aviation sector by throwing up policy, management and operational issues for public discussion.

This has resulted in tremendously significant evidential changes in Nigeria’s aviation sector.

Aviation and allied business organizations have equally taken advantage of sponsorship opportunities presented by this event to sell their products and services. This 2024 edition presents yet another opportunity.

“This year’s conference is peculiar because it will focus on the industry’s survival and sustenance which constitutes a major subject of discussion in a time like this,” says Chinedu Eze, chairman, LAAC conference planning committee.
