11th European Aviation Conference

29th November-1st December, 2023

Forwarding Welfare -

The Role of Air Cargo in Future Aviation Policy & Economics


Over its history of 20 years, the European Aviation Conference has become a unique forum for lively discussions between researchers, policy makers and industry practitioners for contemporary issues in aviation management and economics.

The conference has a long and rich history of generating lively, enriching, and productive discussions. After multiple stop-overs in many European capitals, including Vienna, Athens, Dublin, Amsterdam, the conference is finally landing in Luxembourg!

The focus of this year’s conference is on all issues relating to air cargo and freight transport in aviation. Cargo is a critical aspect of the contribution of aviation to the European economy and society, as was made clearer than ever during recent years.

The Co-Chairs of the EAC 2023 Organising Committee, Professor Benny Mantin of the University of Luxembourg and Thomas Immelmann of the University of Applied Sciences Bremen, are pleased to welcome participants and speakers to Luxembourg.

This year’s conference will thoroughly analyse the state of the air cargo sector, including:
● The relevance of cargo for the margins of passenger airlines and airports
● Competition in times of crisis: How the Ukraine war changed air cargo traffic.
● Towards freight sustainability: How to reduce and regulate the carbon footprint of air cargo?
● Limits or challenges? Airports and air freight logistics.
● The future of belly freight – will passenger and cargo traffic go separate ways?
● Effects of European air traffic liberalisation on cargo logistics: a review of the past 20 years.

EAC Conference Chair, Professor Hans-Martin Niemeier of the University of Applied Sciences, Bremen, said: “We concluded a very successful 2022 European Aviation Conference in Heilbronn, Germany, which considered the best policy responses to the harms inflicted on all aspects of aviation in the pandemic years.”
