(MENAFN - Arab News) The top leadership of the air transport industry will be gathering in doha from june 1 to 3 for the iata 70th annual general meeting (agm) and world airport transport summit.

this is only the fourth time that the iata agm will be held in the middle east following agms in amman (1997) tehran (1970) and cairo. (1946).

qatar airways a longstanding iata member is hosting the event.

qatar airways ceo akbar al-baker has served on the iata board of governors since 2012.

the emir of qatar sheikh tamim bin hamad al-thani has agreed to be the patron of the annual general meeting in doha.

'the agm will be a big event for aviation in the middle east and particularly for the airlines based in the gulf region" said tony tyler iata's director general and ceo.

'these carriers including qatar airways have been at the core of a major shift in global aviation. in just over a decade the share of global traffic accounted for by middle east airlines grew from 4 percent to 9 percent. much of this growth has been realized here in the gulf" said tyler.

about 1000 delegates and journalists are expected to attend the agm.

the program includes a ceo forum on the first day of the agm featuring david barger ceo jetblue airways; ivan chu ceo cathay pacific; andreas conesa labastida ceo aeromexico; and willie walsh chief executive international airlines group.

cnn international business correspondent richard quest will moderate the session.

'this agm will be a special one because the commercial airline industry is celebrating its 100th birthday. the governments in the gulf are among those strategically using aviation as an economic catalyst. and i think that it will be a great place not only to celebrate our first 100 years but also to look ahead to aviation's next century" said tyler.
