The airline industry has been hit hard by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Despite TSA surpassing 1 million screened passengers for the first time since March, it’s still a far cry from where things were at this time last year. Some executives don’t see demand returning to pre-pandemic levels until 2024.

In the midst of the uncertainty, however, we have seen carriers announce new international service (in addition to domestic route changes). Perhaps most notable among these announcements is United, which is planning to expand its network to cities like Johannesburg (JNB) and Bangalore (BLR) in 2021.

So how exactly do these decisions get made, and what other considerations go into an airline’s international strategy?

Well, you have a chance to peek behind the curtain a bit on today’s Future of Travel webinar, as TPG’s founder and CEO Brian Kelly welcomes Patrick Quayle, Vice President of International Network and Alliances for United Airlines. They’ll cover a lot of ground, including the pandemic’s initial impact on United’s network and how the carrier is looking to 2021 and beyond in meeting the needs of its customers around the world.

But don’t wait! Registration closes as soon as the session begins, so you have just a few hours left to reserve your spot.

In his current role, Patrick oversees United’s international strategy, which covers numerous aspects of the airline’s global operation — including capacity, scheduling, alliances and even aircraft configuration. That includes the reconfiguration of United’s widebody fleet with Polaris business class, a product that continues to roll out across the fleet.
