Asia's aviation spotlight

Final arrangements are in hand for the 12th Aviation Festival Asia (AFA), which will be taking place in Singapore on 23 and 24 February next year at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.

More than 2,000 aviation experts are expected at the event, which is in two parts – a conference and a major exhibition highlighting developments in all sectors throughout the industry, from high-tech to catering, including the latest Asian start-ups.

The conference is the stage for top executives, influencers and game changers to meet to share ideas on the latest and most vital innovations that AFA organisers say are changing the way full-service airlines, low-cost carriers and airports are doing business.

More than 200 industry leaders – including Arif Wibowo, president and CEO of Garuda Indonesia; Juha Järvinen, senior vice president and chief commercial officer of Finnair; and Barathan Pasupathi, CEO of Jetstar Asia Airways – are expected to speak on topics regarding the aviation and airport business, technological advancements and application, and improving and developing passenger experiences.

Airlines that have confirmed attendance so far include Etihad Airways, Delta Air Lines, AirAsia, Lufthansa, Air New Zealand, VietJet Air, Tigerair and Air France-KLM.
