Skift Take

Our inaugural Skift Aviation Forum will be an essential event for anyone looking to understand the aviation industry's path forward from what has been its greatest crisis. Led by Skift's Airline Weekly and Skift editors, these conversations with CEOs and industry leaders are not to be missed.



Skift Aviation Forum is taking place as an online conference this year on November 19, live on Central CST timezone and on-demand the following day.

This forum, the first aviation-specific conference staged by Skift, will be a fast-paced, deep dive into the business of aviation, bringing together Skift’s editorial viewpoint, extensive research insights, and broader travel industry knowledge with the depth and authority of Airline Weekly, a Skift brand. The highly influential global business newsletter is consumed by CEOs and senior executives every week across the airline industry. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is a premier host of the event.
