General information

We are very excited to finally have another face-to-face conference, after three years of meeting virtually due to the COVID pandemic.  So, after our last in-person conference in Paris, in 2019, the AGIFORS Airline Operations 2023 Study Group Meeting will be scheduled for Tuesday, June 6 through Friday, June 9, 2023 in historic and beautiful Mexico City in conjunction with our host Aeroméxico.

In addition to a robust technical program, we will once again return to having a social program.  Our 2023 social program for this conference will include an afternoon visit to the great pyramids of the Sun and the Moon at Teotihuacan, on the outskirts of Mexico City.

Come and share with us your ideas, thoughts, current trends, philosophies, and latest technological advances on any of the above topics. We look forward to seeing you in 2023 in Mexico City!


The venue for this year's conference is the Sheraton Maria Isabel Reforma - a beautiful and luxurious hotel centrally located in the business heart of Mexico City. 

Here you can see the view of the main avenue of Mexico City's commercial district - Reforma -from a window of the Sheraton.

We will also be providing free shuttle service to one of the world's finest museums - the Museo Antropologico - 13,000 years of human history in Mexico 

Discounted hotel registration is available! 

We have reserved a block of rooms at a rate of US$125 per night on a first-come, first served basis
