Spring, Texas – Nov. 11, 2015 – ExxonMobil received a 20-year strategic partner award from the IATA – a trade association that represents 84 percent of total air traffic. The award was presented to ExxonMobil during IATA’s bi-annual Aviation Fuel Forum last week.
Founded in 1990, the IATA Strategic Partnerships program was designed to serve as a global forum for aviation solution providers and key industry stakeholders. The program enables participants to gain unique insights into airlines’ priorities and to contribute to the development of effective solutions to key commercial and technical challenges.
During the Aviation Fuel Forum, Nancy Carlson, vice president of ExxonMobil’s aviation and marine global business unit, presented findings from ExxonMobil’s report, “The Outlook for Energy: A View to 2040.”
“Through the annual ExxonMobil Outlook for Energy, we strive to broaden the understanding among individuals, businesses and governments about the key challenges impacting global energy supply and demand,” said Carlson. “Aviation demand is expected to increase about 70 percent to more than 8 million barrels of oil equivalent per day. Most of the growth is expected in China, India and in emerging markets around the world.”
