The Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and the Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE) have extensive development plans, bringing innovation to our airfields and terminals and strengthening our regional economic impact. PHL is a vital economic engine for the region, generating billions of dollars annually and supporting more than 100,000 jobs for the 11-county Philadelphia metropolitan area, while PNE contributes nearly $500 million and more than 3,000 jobs.

Join us to hear from a panel of experts, including Atif Saeed, Chief Executive Officer, City of Philadelphia Department of Aviation; Clyde M. Woltman, Chief Executive Officer, Leonardo Helicopters US; Lakshman Amaranayaka, Vice President, American Airlines at PHL; and Chellie Cameron, President & Chief Executive Officer, The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia, and former Chief Executive Officer of the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Aviation. They will discuss PHL and PNE Airports’ Capital Development Program, ways to address workforce shortages and development issues, Standard & Poor’s upgrades, and cargo investment, among other topics.
