Farewell lecture

In the plenary sessions, high-level academic speakers will exchange ideas with high-level government and industry speakers. The main theme of the conference will focus aviation, economic growth and sustainability. A lot of studies try to indicate the expected growth in employment as a result of growth in the number of aviation passengers or flights. However, airports often already serve cities with a strong economy, and such cities often are also important tourist destinations. In general terms: accessibility is important for a strong economy, but a healthy transport sector needs a strong economy. Transport and the economy support each other.
