The aviation industry is a sector that thrives on partnerships with other businesses across the world. These partnerships can lead to vital business growth such as route expansions. Airline networking is essential for allowing these businesses to come together and discuss potential opportunities. CONNECT allows airlines, airports and other aviation business to network at a single venue.
