The highly uncertain and dynamic aviation industry demands our decision-making techniques constantly evolve and adapt to the ever changing conditions.  Developing analytics driven methods and leveraging advanced techniques offers improvements in maintenance operations efficiency, increased resiliency, higher aircraft reliability, and improved operations performance.

Joint Sessions with the Airline Operations Study Group

This year’s conference is being organized once again in conjunction with the AGIFORS Airline Operations study group to promote a vibrant dialog on topics that touch these business areas. 


The theme of this year's conference is "Maximizing Operational Performance: Leveraging the Power of Data, Technology, an Automation".
