Up, Up and Away: Brad DiFiore’s 2014 “Outlook for the Airline Industry”

Airlift is the lifeline of Hawaii’s tourism industry, which last year allowed a record 8.2 million visitors to travel to the Hawaiian Islands. With 975 flights per week from 48 cities worldwide, it is critical that we maintain existing airlift and develop new routes to sustain Hawaii’s tourism economy. 
This summer, air seats to the state are projected to increase from the past year with additional flights and capacity for the peak travel season. Find out which markets are anticipated to grow and about the airlift opportunities and challenges ahead during Brad DiFiore’s “Outlook for the Airline Industry” general session on day one of the conference. 
DiFiore is a co-founder and managing partner of Ailevon Pacific Aviation Consulting, a multi-national consulting firm dedicated to air service development. Last year, he presented details about airlift to each of Hawaii’s major market areas, and this year, he returns to share the latest updates and other industry trends that will help to shape Hawaii’s tourism economy for the rest of 2014 into 2015.
