During the 2020 Summer Aviation Forum held in the presence of leaders of air transport on Friday 28 August, Hermes presented its new publication entitled: “The History of Air Transport”. The first copy of the book was presented to the President of ICAO Council, Salvatore Sciacchitano.
This book provides an updated timeline of the key moments of air transport. It is based on the first aviation history book Hermes published in 2014 in partnership with ICAO, ACI, CANSO & IATA.
Director General of Hermes, Dr Kostas Iatrou and author of the book said: “Commercial aviation recently celebrated its first centennial. For more than 100 years since the first take off, aviation has witnessed challenges and changes that have made it a critical component of modern societies. Most importantly, air transport brings humans closer together, promoting peace and harmony through connectivity and social exchange. A key role for Hermes Air Transport Organisation is to contribute to the development, progress and promotion of air transport at a global level. This is and will not be possible without knowing the history and evolution of the industry.”
