Charting a better future for Air Canada
MONTREAL, Jan. 21, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Media representatives are invited
to attend the Business Luncheon of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan
Montreal on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, at noon. On this occasion, Calin
Rovinescu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada, will be
the guest speaker.
A fundamental reinvention of the global airline industry is underway
with the proliferation of low-cost carriers, the aggressive growth of
Gulf carriers and a shift in airline alliances. Calin Rovinescu will
talk about Air Canada's strategy to strengthen its position as a global
player in the airline industry.
Canadian travelers are flocking to U.S. carriers at border airports at
the expense of Canadian carriers and airports such as Montréal-Trudeau.
Mr. Rovinescu will therefore stress the urgent need to address Canada's
uncompetitive aviation infrastructure costs as a result of an
exorbitant fees and charges structure imposed by government and
government agencies in Canada.
Tuesday, January 22, 2013
From noon to 2 p.m.
Speech - 12:15 p.m.
Le Centre Sheraton
1201 René-Lévesque Blvd. W.
