New economical and financial reality dictate new approaches to airline business development based upon significantly expanded international commercial cooperation, integration and merger of airlines around the globe.

The year 2010 has demonstrated an apparent drift towards liberalization of the Russian segment of the international air transport. Many airlines, both in Russia and Europe, have received new commercial rights, additional frequencies and increased payload capacities. EU-Russian aviation dialogue has hopefully grinded, albeit very slow, from the halt. However, this improvement process by no means is systematic by its nature, or generally transparent, and often presented completely different ways by its participants. As years before, policy of restrictions and limitations governs bi-lateral ASAs, seriously aggravating difficult life of Russian and European airlines who were elbowing most of the last decade through permanent chain of crises.

The 4th EU-Russia Airlines Cooperation conference aims to deliver to authorities views and vision of Russian and European carries on the most important problems of air transport development, to contribute to unblocking EU-Russia aviation dialogue and to generate recommendations to help officials and market players to enhance co-operation.

Who should attend: senior management of Russian and European airlines, regulatory and government officials, professional association experts, senior management of airports and air traffic control organizations, industry suppliers, service providers, financiers and investors, market analysts and specialist media from the EU and Russia.
