General Session 2: Air Turbulence – Airport/Airline Roundtable                              1.5 CPE Credits
Shrinking airline revenues have led to increased pressure for reductions in airport charges and delays or
cancellations of capital programs. But there is a need to plan for the future and the inevitable return of
passengers and cargo. How do we reconcile the fact that airlines are principally focused on short term
survival while airports must also concentrate on the long term air service and the economic needs of their
communities? Join us for a spirited discussion about how airports and airlines can better work together to
ensure operational and financial success in the short and long term.
