MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2012) - With the number of commercial flights poised to double between now and 2040, the global aviation community must agree on a coordinated strategic response to its critical capacity challenges at the ICAO 12th Air Navigation Conference (AN-Conf/12) in Montréal from 19-30 November 2012.
At risk as flight volumes increase will be the prompt access that people and businesses take for granted today to on-demand travel and tourism, next-day deliveries and many other critical day-to-day services readily available through the current air transport system.

Please be sure to stipulate which event/dates apply to your visit.

Hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of infrastructure and aircraft modernization planning will be impacted by these decisions over the next several decades, affecting multiple industries and socio-economic sectors and the day-to-day travel experience of billions of global citizens (aviation transports 2.5 billion passengers and $5.3 trillion worth of cargo annually).
