about the eac

Since 2012, the European Aviation Conference (EAC) has offered a unique meeting place for industry stakeholders, researchers and government officials from across Europe and around the world to discuss timely, policy-relevant issues in aviation with the goal of the seeking insights from best practices and practical solutions to challenges facing the aviation industry. The conference takes place in a different European city each year. Recent meetings have taken place in Berlin, St. Gallen, Amsterdam, Cranfield, Dublin, Athens and Vienna. The 2022 European Aviation Conference was held in Heilbronn, Germany. In 2023, the conference will take place in Luxembourg.

Each conference addresses a different aviation theme, such as the aviation value chain, airport infrastructure capacity, aviation liberalisation, business models and airport ownership/control. This year’s topic is ‘Forwarding Welfare - The Role of Air Cargo in Future Aviation Policy & Economics’.

The EAC is organized by an international committee comprised of researchers, industry managers, government policy-makers and regulatory officials under the chairmanship of Professor Hans-Martin Niemeier (Bremen University of Applied Sciences, Germany) and Dr. Thomas Immelmann.
