Oman Air CEO to speak at 'Future of Air Transport'
Oman Air’s CEO Peter Hill has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at The Future of Air Transport 2010 conference in London.
The airline executive will speak about the role of in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) as a factor in customers’ choice and the evolution of IFEC to meet the changing needs and expectations of travellers.
“The Future of Air Transport is acknowledged as one of the aviation industry’s leading events. I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak to some of the industry’s leading figures and to promote the debate on how we can continue to meet and surpass customers’ expectations when it comes to IFEC and other in-flight technologies,” said Hill.
“As we found when Oman Air introduced in-flight mobile and Wi-Fi connectivity, customers value the chance to stay in touch, be entertained, update their social media and work whilst travelling. Oman Air and an increasing number of other airlines have taken great steps forward within the area of IFEC and one of the major challenges for the future will be how we match the pace of technological change. I look forward to discussing with colleagues the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead,” he added.
Having first entered the airline industry in 1961, Hill has worked with a number of different airlines, including BOAC, Gulf Air, Emirates and Sri Lankan Airways, where he was CEO. He was appointed as Oman Air’s CEO in 2008.
The Future of Air Transport will be held at Le Méridien Piccadilly, London on 29th and 30th November.
