State of the Airline Industry in 2021
February 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$50
With hope on the horizon for travel to safely resume again, the Norwalk Community College Foundation is proud to host a special lecture from David Neeleman, who has founded four successful, independent airlines. Jet Blue was the first airline to earn $100 million annually within five years and became world renowned for its low fares and exceptional customer service. This year, David will launch Breeze Airways, which will fly non-stop service between places currently without meaningful or affordable service, and aims to be “the world’s nicest airline.'”
Besides sharing his insider knowledge on the future of the travel industry, David will speak about his inspiring path to success in the business world. As a student, he struggled with academics, but now credits the challenges he faced with making him a better business owner.
Anyone interested in travel, entrepreneurism or business, will be sure to enjoy this one-time online event, all in support of students in our community.
