NEW YORK, May 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aviation Week Network, serving the global aviation, aerospace and defense industries, today announces the rollout of a month-long interactive, digital content program focused on business aviation in Europe, launching the week of May 25. The program was created in light of the current COVID-19 crisis, which has forced the cancellation of key industry gatherings.

Led by ShowNews Editor-in-Chief John Morris, along with contributions from industry experts including Business & Commercial Aviation (BCA) Editor-In-Chief William Garvey; Graham Warwick, Managing Editor, Technology, Aviation Week Network; Guy Norris, Senior Editor, Aviation Week Network; Molly McMillin, Editor-in-Chief, The Weekly of Business Aviation; Angus Batey, contributor, Aviation Week Network; and Fred George, Chief Aircraft Evaluation Editor, Aviation Week Network, the program will deliver an in-depth special report, providing a deep-dive into the post COVID-19 outlook, with content that includes:

  • Survey results with more than 130 responses from business aviation CEOs across Europe on the impact of the crisis
  • Key technologies that could reshape the industry, supported by EBAA Insights on Europe’s vital role in the industry’s future
  • A webinar entitled “European Business Aviation – Strategies for Recovery,” which will be hosted by Morris on May 27 at 10 a.m. EDT/ 4 p.m. CEST. Click here to register.

“The COVID-19 crisis makes it even more imperative to keep the European business aviation community informed on the current and upcoming regulatory and policy updates. From the safe re-opening of air travel and specific health and safety measures, to the humanitarian and advocacy support for the medical missions and the front-line heroes,” said EBAA Secretary-General Athar Husain Khan.

Aviation Week Network is a long-established partner to the business aviation community, connecting through virtual events with its on-going webinar series, as well as intelligence, marketing services, fleet, data and forecasting tools. Its commitment to the business aviation community is to provide situational awareness to its customers to help them navigate beyond the crisis, understand how the industry is responding, and what the future holds.

“Business aviation is forecast by many to lead the recovery of air transportation after the crisis, and it may indeed bounce back robustly. Our special report will help prepare the industry with valuable news on markets, new products and services, and strategies that may be helpful in the coming months,” said ShowNews Editor-in-Chief, John Morris.
