Willie Walsh returns to Abta Travel Convention

Chief executive of International Airlines Group Willie Walsh is to speak once again at this year's Travel Convention in Palma.

Walsh will talk about the proposed increase in Air Passenger Duty, the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, airport capacity and how the industry is going to overcome concerns around the environmental impact of aviation.

The former British Airways boss became chief executive of IAG, the parent company of British Airways and Ibera, in January 2011.

Abta chief exeutive Mark Tanzer said: "Last year Willie Walsh was one of the star turns in Malta. His insights on key issues that affect the entire industry will once more make for essential listening.

"He has now taken on a new major role and it will be fascinating to hear how he intends to address the challenge and opportunities offered by the merger of BA and Iberia."
