From 1 to 4 October 2019, the Artheau Aviation team visited IFTM Top RESA, the unmissable and essential event for professionals in the tourism and travel industry. All through the week, we were very happy to meet new partners and keep in touch with our clients and contacts. Every year, it is a pleasure for us to strengthen our ties with our daily contacts and to exchange views on our activity with new employees.


The show brought together more than 34,000 professionals (+4.83%), French and international buyers, distribution and production professionals, journalists and media, influencers, students, French and international officials who came to meet the 1700 exhibiting brands (tourist offices, airlines, hotel groups, technology companies, start-ups, etc.). The many trade fair events, workshops, dedicated conferences and evenings are highlights that allow an entire profession to discover new trends and share experiences in a friendly environment.

This edition saw a 5% increase in visits according to the organizers and was dedicated to growth, foresight and openness to digital futures.

However, we cannot forget the economic situation during which the show took place, bearing in mind the bankruptcies and liquidations of XL Airways, Aigle Azur, Thomas Cook and Adria.

The market is actually tightening with a decrease in the number of aircraft in Europe, but the impact on the tourism sector is not yet fully visible: there will be more bankruptcies in the sector.

At Artheau Aviation, anticipation and vigilance are our key words. We are constantly alert to the financial situation of our various service providers. Protecting our customers is our priority and we have been bearing this in mind on the flights we have operated in the last few black weeks.
