A debate on the future and growth of the aviation sector

The aviation sector is growing at an incredible rate. The image of aviation, however, is under pressure. So last week, the Aviation and Business Travel Symposium focused on the limits to growth in the sector, with the focus on the consequences of growth for the (business) traveller. The symposium was organised by Breda University of Applied Sciences for the fifteenth time.

In her opening speech, Elisabeth Minnemann (president of the Executive Board of BUas) said that “it is time for a debate on the future and growth of the sector. We feel a responsibility to take on a convening role because the aviation industry is an integral part in many of our degree programmes.” She told her audience: “Regardless of background, or which organisation or interest you are presenting, we all have a common interest: we want a future for the aviation industry, we want to be able to travel, and we do not want to ignore the adverse effects. We must find solutions, together.”
