    Weather in May

    In May, Modena basks in a pleasant 22.3°C, with days of rainfall taking a leap to around 80mm. It illustrates a vibrant cityscape, with the city's plentiful greenery thriving under the warm sun. The increase in temperature points towards the approach of summer, yet the city maintains its refreshing ambiance with frequent rainfall. The longer daylight hours paint the city in a unique hue of glamour and mystique. Despite the onset of summer heat, the cool breezes and showers keep the climate enjoyable.

    Co-Hosted By


    The policy of AGIFORS for all their meetings are to have the registration fee for Airline staff and Academics as low as possible. The philosophy behind this is that academics are likely to enter new lines of thought into our field, and having a strong presence by airlines brings great value to both the vendors and the airlines.

    It would therefore be great if your organisation could this year be one of our sponsors

    Gold (USD 5,000)



    Silver (USD 3,500)



    Bronze (USD 2,000)
