Aviation stakeholders brainstorm at LAAC confab
Major stakeholders in the aviation sector are set to meet at a conference organised by the League of Airport and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC) to chart a path to sectoral growth.
The conference, slated for July 28, 2021, will table management, policy and regulation issues affecting the industry.
While the Ministry of Aviation has pledged to be part of the event, all the aviation agencies, including Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Accident Investigation Bureau, Nigeria (AIB-N) and the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria, have expressed the desire to be fully involved.
Director-General of the NCAA, Capt Musa Nuhu, in a statement, affirmed its agency’s support and endorsement of the conference.
Nuhu said: “We will continue to partner with LAAC for a successful outing. This is in line with our resolve to invest in projects that could elicit solutions to the myriad of challenges confronting air travel in the face of COVID-19 pandemic.”
The conference and awards, in its 25th edition, will host over 250 aviation professionals across agencies, international and domestic airlines, aviation support services, travel sellers and buyers and captains of the aviation industry.
Chairman of the Conference Committee, Chinedu Eze, said top aviation personalities would deliver insightful papers on issues affecting the industry.
Also, outstanding stakeholders, made up of individuals and corporate organisations who have distinguished themselves in the industry, would also be honoured with various industry awards.
