Keynote LLC CEO Panel: As we approach pre-pandemic levels how is the low cost landscape evolving and what are the key trends emerging when it comes to digital technology, sustainability, and ancillary revenue?
This 45-minute panel was moderated by John Strickland, JLS Consulting and composed of four CEOs, three from low-cost carriers (LCC) and one from a travel company.
- John Strickland, JLS Consulting
- Eddie Wilson, CEO Ryanair DAC
- Robert Carey, President Wizz Air
- Marcel de Nooijer, CEO Transavia
- Mary Li, CEO Atlas
The session was filled with debate and packed with interesting ideas.
With a heavy focus on distribution, the dynamics of the panel elevated their discussion with Mary Li and Eddie Wilson presenting opposing approaches from one another. The session explored a range of topics from digitisation to ancillaries, inclusivity to personalisation, and e-commerce to sustainability.
Eddie, Robert, and Marcel proposed diverse opinions in answer to LCC specific questions and Mary enhanced their overall discussion firstly with a non-airline perspective and secondly by drawing on an Asia-Pacific viewpoint.
No avoiding tough questions, John also pushed the panellists to answer on the rising prices of airline fares and reconciling growth and sustainability.
