Through its quarter century in business, PAX has been the trusted source of news covering IFSA, continuing the trend in partnership with APEX and FTE. PAX journalists worked diligently with APEX through the pandemic, covering the Associations’ advocacy to reopen U.S. borders, to return to in-person conferences and to lift the inflight mask mandate.

In 2023, the event brought together almost 3,000 attendees, more than 97 airlines and 76 airport operators. PAX was thrilled to be onsite sharing live updates from the 2023 EXPO, including speakers, the exhibition floor and media briefings.
