China Eastern Airlines to host 78th IATA AGM in Shanghai

BOSTON, October 5, 2021

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that China Eastern Airlines will host the 78th IATA annual general meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit in Shanghai, China, from June 19-21, 2022.
 
This decision was made by the 77th AGM and World Air Transport Summit in Boston, IATA said. 
 
This will be the third time China will host the global gathering of aviation's top leaders. The AGM was previously held in Beijing in 2012 and in Shanghai in 2002. 
 
Director General Willie Walsh said: “We look forward to gathering the aviation industry in Shanghai for the 78th IATA AGM. China is a dynamic aviation market, with its domestic travel among the fastest to recover from the damage brought by Covid-19." 
 
China Eastern Airlines Chairman Liu Shaoyong said: “We are excited to host the IATA AGM and to welcome our industry colleagues to our home city of Shanghai. In the 20 years since the AGM was last held in Shanghai, the city has completely changed. We look forward to showcasing our vibrant city and warm Chinese hospitality.”-TradeArabia News Service
