The keynote programme has been revealed for the 24th Annual GHI Conference, Lisbon, 28-30 November.

Exclusive sessions include: 

The Big Debate: Leading the turnaround – what airlines want from ground handling v2.0
GHI invites airline leaders for a candid view of what they see as the essential components of a winning ground handling business strategy over the next five years. From fast-tracking GSE electrification to automation, how have expectations of GSPs changed post Covid and what core attributes constitute ‘the right stuff’ in the eyes of an airline customer? 
Panellists include: Joerg Mnich, Vice President Commercial Airport Agreements, Lufthansa German Airline; Carolyn Prowse, Chief Customer, Commercial and Strategy Officer, Vueling; Dieter Bruneel, Group Director of Ground Operations, TUI Airline

Policy: A new EASA safety regulatory framework for ground handlers – what it means for you
An exclusive session on a new regulatory framework for ground handling service providers that aims to increase the overall safety level of the aviation system and reduce the damages to aircraft and vehicles.
Adina Szonyi, Ground Handling Expert, EASA

Robotics: The humanoid rampie
Rapid advances in robotics twinned with artificial intelligence are tipped to see humanoid-style robots replace humans in a vast array of labour-intensive industries such as manufacturing and healthcare over the next 20 years. So, could humanoids be the answer for our own skills depleted sector?
Jeff Cardenas, CEO, Apptronik

Airports: The airport and the ground handler – building the dream team
The airline-handler relationship is the dominant focus of our attention when it comes to discussion over building performance enhancing ground partnerships. But, is the airport an equally influential and under-utilised ally in crafting world class safety, OTP, sustainability standards on the apron?
Panellists include: Liam Bolger, Head of Operations, London Luton Airport; Albert Kalmbach, Assistant Vice President, Cargo Business Development, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

Skills: Going with the grain – building effective partnerships with your union
With employer pay deals unable to keep pace with rampant inflation, tension between union members and management has never been higher. What are the steps to establishing common ground between leadership teams and frontline workers that ensure we move forward together?
Eoin Coates, Head of Aviation, European Transport Workers Federation
