1st International Conference on Aviation Future: Challenge and Solution

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam


The Vietnam Aviation Academy and the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) are proud to jointly organise the 1st International Conference on Aviation Future: Challenge and Solution on 27-28 May 2021, online.

About the conference

Vietnam air transport quadrupled over the last 10 years and is expected to grow with double digit figures. These extreme growth rates are no exception in the region; the entire aviation system is being put to the test. Airlines are expanding their fleet and networks (destinations and frequencies); Airports and ATC try to upgrade the capacity by building new facilities and/or make smarter use of those available, education; Aviation training institutes struggle to deliver the required amount of well trained and highly skilled professionals. An increasing number of new passengers are discovering the advantages of air travel.

In the aviation practice, operations professionals are doing their utmost to meet the daily flight schedules; there is little time to implement short term plans to increase capacity, let alone to perform a thorough investigation towards innovative solutions for sustainable aviation development. Urban issues, tourism, public transport connection, big data management impact have a major upon airports as well as upon aviation in general.

This raises the question what is the future of Aviation? Is the current capacity crunch just a short term challenge in the long-term trend of stable aviation growth over the last decades? Will aviation be disrupted by new technologies? Will new business or airport operating models or urban planning solve these issues? What can be learned from developments in other regions or industries and what are the insights from scientific research towards these challenges in aviation?
