A 'National Summit on the Recovery of the Air Sector' brought together industry partners, including airports, airlines, associations, labour and consumer rights groups, and government departments and agencies to discuss critical issues facing passenger air transportation and the future of the air sector in Canada.
"This past summer demonstrated how much work remains to be done to ensure a strong recovery of the sector and the ongoing need for collaboration between partners," the federal government said in a press release.
"It is only by continuing to improve that we can grow the industry and our economy, create good jobs for Canadians, and ensure reliable service for travellers," the statement added.
Led by Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra, Summit participants covered a broad range of challenges, strategies, and next steps.
Discussion topics included:
-- COVID-19 lessons learned and challenges for the future
-- Supporting digital transformation
-- Managing costs and infrastructure
-- Integrated management of services at airports, including through data management
-- Transparency, accountability and passenger rights
Prior to the Summit, Transport Canada invited air sector stakeholders to participate in an online survey to share their views. It says the Summit and survey responses will inform its work, along with other government and industry partners, as they develop approaches to support Canada's air sector recovery and improvements in services for travellers.
In the meantime, Transport Canada says it will continue to collaborate with partners to improve air transport system performance with a particular focus on the upcoming holiday season, and ensuring further improvements in advance of summer 2023 volumes.
