May 30,2019 - Last updated at May 30,2019

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) said leaders of the air transport industry are gathering in Seoul, Republic of Korea, for the 75th IATA Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit.

Hosted by Korean Air, and held for the first time in the Republic of Korea, the event is expected to attract more than a thousand top leaders from among IATA’s 290 member airlines, their suppliers, governments, strategic partners, international organisations and the media. “The airlines will be meeting in challenging times.

2019 is expected to be the 10th consecutive year of airline profits, but rising costs, trade wars and other uncertainties are likely to have an impact on the bottom line,” according to Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s director general and CEO.
