Aircraft MRO
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all segments of the air transport industry. For many airlines, more than 80 per cent of their aircraft are already parked. Therefore the scheduled aircraft maintenance and repair segment of the business will inevitably suffer from a large number of requests from carriers needing to defer their payments. This scenario throws up enough questions and raises a number of new tasks to be overcome, all of which prove the value of a gathering of the professional community to take part in an effective dialogue at the upcoming online event. As part of the online event, we will talk about optimising aircraft maintenance costs, optimising and transforming maintenance programmes, maintaining the qualifications of technical personnel, new opportunities for Russian maintenance and repair facilities, spare parts logistics, engine maintenance and returnable maintenance forms.

  • The optimisation of costs for the conservation of aircraft, and the optimisation and transformation of maintenance programmes
  • The maintenance of the qualifications of technical staff
  • New opportunities for Russian MRO facilities
  • Spare parts logistics, engine maintenance and returnable maintenance forms
Digital Aviation Forum
What is unique about the current crisis? The key difference between the COVID-19 crisis and previous similar events is that innovation is expected. Clearly, a proactive response is critical for all companies, and for this they will need a well-positioned and efficiently used innovation department which can become a catalyst in speedily finding much-needed new solutions. The usual resistance to innovation has disappeared. Now, we need it fast. We need it today. We also note that a quick response to the crisis – and the increased use of technology – can become key survival factors for most businesses, and is likely to be critical for their smooth recovery. Innovators often turn such problems into great opportunities – and their main assistant now is technology – so there is a need to identify which technologies can best help the industry in its recovery. Those who accomplish this will not only survive this crisis, but will also come out stronger and better prepared to work with a completely new tourism market. All of this, and more, is why we are inviting the professional community to take part in the first online conference for air transport, outliving the crisis.
Human Resources in Crisis and Post-Crisis

The unprecedented crisis in which global air transport has found itself requires leaders at all levels to form new strategic decisions, respond quickly to changing market conditions, re-think and review many of the processes that have become routine. In these settings, an intensive exchange of opinions and ideas becomes extremely relevant, and the importance of operational and relevant information is growing. The usual format of conferences and exhibitions cannot meet these interests. This is why we are transferring communication between industry participants to the online format, saving its usual efficiency and supplementing it with advanced features.

Changes in the market structure are leading to the fact that, in the near future, when the rehabilitation period for the industry comes, we will face an inevitable increase in the workload on specialist aircraft training centres, as flight crews will need training and retraining.

As part of a 'Post-Pandemic Human Resources' webinar, we will discuss the most pressing issues facing the industry, develop recommendations from leading experts in the field of flight personnel training and provide an opportunity to create a professional dialogue for all participants.

  • How to protect human resourses in the face of a volume of work extreme reduction?
  • Transition (full or partial) to the home office mode — how it will affect companies, opportunities and challenges
  • Maintenance of pilots and crew professional skills during the pandemic
  • How will vocational training methods change?
Aircraft Manufacturers: A New Economic Reality
In recent decades, civil aviation has been repeatedly challenged by crises. Because an aircraft generates income only when it is in the air, every minute on the ground makes a loss. We believe the crisis will change the demand model by type of aircraft. So what remains: an overproduction crisis or new opportunities? Is the transition to the era of narrow-body aircraft waiting for us? What will be the most promising types of aircraft? What is the potential of Russian aircraft manufacturers? We will discuss these and many other questions with industry experts at the upcoming online event.
World Aviation Fuel Market
An unprecedented supply/oversupply versus demand situation in the oil market — which by all indications is likely to be protracted — against the background of a dramatic decline in air traffic worldwide, is leading to global turmoil in the business of the production and supply of jet fuel. The Russian aviation fuel market is no exception.

It is no surprise that leading market players and jet fuel consumers alike are keenly interested in all relevant information and substantiated forecasts regarding the aviation fuel industry, especially those developments that directly affect the air transport business. Each party is desperate to learn whether airlines in the country are expecting a decrease in domestic prices for aviation fuel and, if so, when and by how much. Also, will the crisis lead to changes in the status quo of the domestic aviation fuel market by further decreasing the share of independent suppliers? Will the rapidly changing conditions in the world market lead to a crisis in jet fuel supplies in Russia and in the Customs Union countries, sparking a decrease in fuel quality caused by long-term storage issues?

Within the framework of the online conference, experts from the world's ratings agencies, representatives of the largest domestic vertically integrated oil companies, fuel-filling complexes, state regulation bodies, scientific institutes and airlines will all investigate the possible answers to these questions.

The long-standing problems traditionally associated with the Russian aviation fuel supply industry — especially those which are related to the organisation of fuel quality control — and the blurred borders of responsibility of the federal executive authorities and the imperfection of the country's regulatory framework, are all critical aspects which will not be ignored by this conference.
Biosecurity in Air Transport and The Transformation of Airports After the Crisis
Leading industry experts are convinced that, in a situation of radical business transformation, innovative technologies can both help overcome the crisis and at the same time open up new opportunities for future development. The global market for airport technologies, especially those related to the safety of passengers in the terminal, is now becoming especially marketable. Some leading airports have already launched a range of infrastructure solutions which include applications and services such as the location of and presence of tag sensors, communications systems, ground control for passengers, cargo and baggage, IoT-enabled beacons, self-service kiosks, robots for moving passengers and baggage, electronic gates, a baggage RFID system, air/ground control, automated border controls, biometrics, and others (navigation, landing aids, airport management software, digital advertising, etc). But many airports are now still at the stage of forming and optimising their plans for the use and implementation of IT technologies. The Biosecurity in Air Transport and The Transformation of Airports After the Crisis online event will allow participants to become acquainted with advanced technologies and solutions, exchange implementation experiences and learn the views of leading industry experts and suppliers of high-tech solutions. They will have a unique opportunity to showcase their developments and offers to a target audience, which includes international airports, airlines, travel services operators and aircraft manufacturers etc.

  • What technologies, new products and services will be in demand to meet the security and efficiency needs of future airport models?
  • What are the main airport security technologies, including baggage handling?
  • What are the difficulties of introducing the necessary technological products to the market?
  • Who are the main suppliers of innovative solutions in this market? What challenges do key suppliers face?
  • What will happen to hubs and mega-hubs? How much time and money will it take to rebuild them?
  • Video recording and face-recognition systems have become key elements in ensuring aviation security at airports. What if all passengers are wearing masks?
  • How will baggage-handling processes change?
Helicopter Operations
Despite the fact that helicopters account for less than five per cent of the passenger turnover of Russian air transport, the value to Russia of this type of aircraft cannot be underestimated. Helicopter technology plays an important role in the exploration and production of minerals industries, including hydrocarbons, as well as for the performance of health-care tasks. These two segments are the main ones. In remote regions of Russia, helicopters remain the only way to communicate with the mainland. For example, the top 35 airlines in Russia in terms of the number of passengers carried include nine operators operating helicopters.

  • How the COVID-19 pandemic will affect the development of the helicopter industry?
  • Will helicopters be replaced by aircraft?
  • Will the state support the helicopter industry?
  • Manufacture of civil helicopters
  • Digitalization of the helicopter industry
  • MRO helicopters
Legal Practice of Anti-Crisis Measures

In the current situation, many companies in the aviation industry are facing unprecedented challenges, and among these are a host of legal ramifications. Therefore, the contribution of legal experts is extremely important and relevant. As part of an online event dedicated to anti-crisis measures from the standpoint of legal considerations, the industry’s professional community will discuss the steps many companies must take in order to obtain practical recommendations for safe business practices, such as bankruptcies, staff reductions, debt prolongation and restructuring, the use of government support measures, etc.

  • How to define and optimise the new and current business relationships between airlines, airports and lessors. What are the likely consequences of broken contracts?
  • Are bankruptcies expected among airlines and airports? Can a virus of bankruptcies penetrate the entire air transport production system?
  • What are the specific features of bankruptcy procedures for Russian companies?
  • The problem of returning money to passengers through the charge-back procedure provided by payment systems. What should airlines do?
  • What lessons can air transport industry players learn from the current crisis?
  • How to improve the regulatory framework governing relationships between air carriers, their passengers and other industry participants?
  • How to harmonise the processes of industry digitalisation with the existing regulatory framework? What are the future development trends?
  • Government support measures and the necessity of zero VAT
  • Business restructuring opportunities in the new environment
Air Cargo
The global air cargo market has been in stagnation in the last year. However, against the current backdrop of a radical reduction in passenger aircraft flights and the capacity of their cargo holds, the global demand for air cargo transportation services has sharply increased, mainly due to the need for urgent medical shipments. The shortage of freight capacity has even forced airlines to carry cargo shipments in passenger compartments without re-equipping them.

The first of a series of events designed to monitor and communicate best practice to the global community of specialist air cargo transportation professionals in the context of the pandemic, will provide an opportunity for an open dialogue for air cargo operators. With passenger carriers also rapidly entering or re-entering the air cargo market, can this new revenue stream become a lifeline for them? Is the competition intensifying? What difficulties have Russian carriers encountered and what is the international situation? To what extent does the regulatory framework meet these new realities? All this and much more will be discussed soon at an online event.
Restoring Confidence in Air Transport
The crisis caused by the Coronavirus pandemic has not only put the airline industry in a critical financial situation, but it has also radically undermined the confidence of passengers. This was initially due to objective reasons such as airlines unable to fulfil their obligations to refund unfulfilled transportation, as well as subjective ones including the fear of 'catching an infection' added to the fear of "breaking up".

  • What actions are being taken by ICAO and IATA?
  • What can airlines and airports do?
  • How to form influence groups, to attract influencers to your side?
  • How to restore passenger confidence?

Participants' opinions on offline and online events
I would like to thank all the participants, speakers, translators, as well as the organizers of the online conference. It was incredibly interesting, I am a beginner in this industry yet, the information received from each of the conference participants was perfectly and professionally presented. The opinions received during this event are very valuable and inspiring, and give hope for a favorable outcome for all aviation structures.
Nikita Karpenyuk
S7 Technics
It is interesting to know the ideas of market participants about the implementation of MRO in today's conditions, sooner or later the pandemic will end and there will be no time for restart, airlines will need to meet passengers fully operational, that means with a working fleet. So why not use the time for the fleet optimization. Many thanks to the organizers for a well-organized online event (the second one where I am a participant), which made it possible to feel that life in our aviation world had not stopped, but had begun to move in a new format, and reached a new level.
