Aviation-Event 2021 Tenerife

Welcome to Tenerife: 11 June 2021

Aviation-Event 2021 Tenerife will be held on 11 June 2021 at the Gran Hotel Meliá Palacio de Isora,
in Alcalá (Guía de Isora)

For the first time Aviation-Event will take place in a tourist destination, and not in a European airport, as has been the norm until now. Its celebration was confirmed by the president of the Cabildo of Tenerife, Pedro Martín, last December and it is expected that some 200 leaders of the aviation industry and representatives of institutions will share strategies on the evolution of the sector.
