Aviation Festival Asia, the leading annual gathering of Asia’s commercial aviation leaders, will take place in Singapore at Suntec Convention Centre on 14-15 June 2022.
After an absence of more than three years, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event marks the first time that the region’s commercial aviation leaders have been able to gather together since 2019.
Over 1,500 of the region’s leading commercial aviation players will gather together under one roof to share strategies to drive Asia’s aviation industry forward as we move beyond the pandemic, under the theme of “Rethink. Rebuild. Recover.”
Airlines already confirmed to attend the show include Singapore Airlines, Scoot, Malaysia Airlines, Thai Airways, Garuda Indonesia, Etihad Airways, Delta, Cebu Pacific, Finnair, Fiji Airways, Firefly, IndiGo, Gulf Air, United Airlines, KLM, Jetstar, Korean Air, Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines and more, made even easier by the fact that Singapore now offers easy entry for all fully-vaccinated travellers.
“With borders across the region opening up, the Aviation Festival Asia team has been working tirelessly to bring this outstanding group of aviation leaders together under one roof for the first
time in years,” says Paul Clark, Managing Director – Asia for Terrapinn. “With aviation traffic showing stronger signs of recovery across much of the region, returning demand for both business and leisure air travel and a real step up in recruitment drives by many airlines, this is the time to get these leaders together and chart the way forward as we look to rethink, rebuild and recover.”
