IATA announces Dublin as 2016 AGM venue, while new chairman takes over

IATA has unveiled its new chairman and announced the venue for its next annual general meeting.
The association has announced that Aeromexico chief executive Andres Conesa has assumed his duties as Chairman of the IATA board of governors for a one-year term.
Conesa succeeds Calin Rovinescu, chief executive of Air Canada, whose one-year term expired at the conclusion of the association’s 71st Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit in Miami.
Rovinescu will continue to serve on the board of governors and the chair committee.
Conesa said: “I am eager to work closely with director general and chief executive Tony Tyler and the entire IATA team to promote the better understanding of aviation among our key stakeholders and to help drive forward important initiatives that will make it ever safer, more efficient, and sustainably profitable.”
IATA also announced that IAG chief executive Willie Walsh will serve as chairman of the board of governors from June 2016, following Conesa’s term.
The AGM concluded with an announcement that Aer Lingus will host the 72nd IATA AGM and World Air Transport Summit in Dublin, June 1-3 2016.
