CEOs from the region’s airlines will head up panel discussions on the issues and opportunities facing them in the current climate and heads of regional industry will also be invited to participate.

The prospects for this aviation market are strong.

Azerbaijan’s exciting modern capital city of Baku is the venue for this inaugural event, brought there by Times Aerospace, organisers of successful events in Africa and the Middle East.
