AAI 2017 Airline Roundtable: Broadening the Lens on Airline Competition

Date: December 07, 2017
Location: National Press Club, Washington DC

On December 7th, the AAI hosted its 3rd annual Airline Roundtable: Broadening the Lens on Airline Competition. Experts in antitrust and regulation from government, industry, advocacy, and academia discussed major competition issues facing the airline industry and consumers of air travel. Evolving enforcement issues, regulatory initiatives, and legislative proposals made this an especially timely program. These included: developments in opening domestic passenger markets to international competition; market entry issues surrounding airport access, control, and infrastructure; and enforcement actions involving potentially anticompetitive agreements. 

The Roundtable focused on challenges to competition, with the goal of focusing antitrust and regulatory aviation policies to promote rivalry, innovation, and consumer benefits. The day included a “Year in Review,” three panels, a luncheon speaker, and roundtable discussions.
