Launch of the Series of Talks on the Aviation Industry


Aviation in the Making 2017-2018


Kazimieras Simonavičius University and the company Friendly Avia Support have joined forces with the intention of concentrating ideas and deepening the knowledge of air transport by organising a series of public discussions about the industry with its leading managers.

The current situation within the world of aviation is very optimistic, although there are a number of contradictions. The big players are buying out the small ones, challenges within aviation security are on the constant increase, and new areas of operation and regulation come into play as drones and commercial space flight become a reality.

Much strategic thinking about the future of air transport needs to be accomplished as it predetermines the economy within the entire region. International Air Transport Association predicts that air travel will double within the next 20 years and freight air transport is already one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy within the European Union. What do aviation leaders think of such predictions?

Sixteen meetings will take place during the 2017-2018 academic year in which distinguished aviation company managers will share their views and insights on the situation within various fields of air transport and evaluate the region’s airport systems within a global context. Aviation industry leaders: Gediminas Almantas, CEO of Lithuanian Airports; Gediminas Žiemelis, Chairman of the Board at Avia Solutions Group; Žilvinas Lapinskas, CEO of FL Technics will participate in the upcoming Aviation in the Making events.

Ariandas Šliupas, an independent expert, politician and aviation manager launches the series of talks with the topic ‘Evaluation of Airport Efficiency: Profit or State Interest?’ at 5 PM on the 19th of October, 2017 in Kazimieras Simonavičius University premises.

All the events are free to attend, are held in English and certificates will be available for regular attendees at the end of the series.
