You do not have to be a member of IDA to watch the webinar and it is free to join the lecture via the link.


Futures for aviation and the possible consequences for Denmark

Abstract: Aviation started as an activity purely for a wealthy minority of the population. Later the charter revolution opened up aviation for a much broader group of travellers. The last decades a huge growth in cheap flights following the liberation of traffic rights has opened up even more travel options. But new technologies and growing environmental concerns have created black clouds over the world’s aviation. The big question is how the society and the aviation sector will handle these challenges. The lecture will discuss different possible scenarios for aviation and what influence this could have for the Danish part of the sector.
