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 and Athens. The 2019 European Aviation Conference was held on 7th/8th November in Vienna. In 2020, the conference was held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, the organizers have decided to organize the conference as online event again. In 2022, the conference will return to a face-to-face format at the University of Applied Sciences Heilbronn, Germany.   


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 ‘Getting real about climate change and aviation: Economics & Policy for this decade’.

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. Mike Tretheway InterVISTAS, Vancouver, Canada.
