Silk Way Airlines Attends 2008 TIACA Executive Conference, Annual General Meeting

On May 12-14, 2008 Silk Way Airlines participated at The International Air Cargo Association's (TIACA) Executive Conference (EC) and Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The aviation industry is working hard to reduce emissions and its impact on the environment. Any future legislation must take into account the overall impact of aviation on climate change ad well as the industry's vital importance to world trade.

The 200 delegates attending the TIACA conference heard the ATA call for proportionate policies that recognize that aviation drives 8% of the global economy yet accounts for less than 3% of greenhouse gas emissions.

At a special Hall of Fame Gala Dinner on the first evening of the conference, the TIACA delegates were graced by the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Joachim of Denmark, who attended the awards presentation to the 2008 TIACA Hall of Fame inductees. From Silk Way Airlines the delegates were: Vice-President, Sales & Marketing of Silk Way Holding, Mr.Kamran Gasimov, and Head of Foreign Relations Department of Silk Way Airlines, Mr.Farid Akhundov.

Jack Boisen, Chairman of TIACA, said: "We especially wish to recognize and thank our main sponsors - Copenhagen Airports and SAS Cargo - for making our 2008 Executive Conference such a fine and interesting event. We had an informative and lively conference and, as we expected, it was the environment that generated the most views and concerns."
