CAPA LCC Congress Bangkok

Now established over 20 years and once called Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation, CAPA is holding a one day Low-Cost Carrier (LCC) Congress at the Shangri-La Bangkok 15 September.

The Australia-based aviation information and analysis consultancy points out that LCCs now account for more than one in four airline seats worldwide, whereas within Southeast Asia close to three in every five seats are now produced by LCCs. In virtually every region worldwide LCCs are the growth engine within the airline business.  But the airports they serve were often built in a very different era.  As a result, there is commonly a mismatch between airport infrastructure, technology and services and the contemporary needs of LCCs.

The one-day CAPA summit in Bangkok aims to help bridge the gaps in awareness that exist between the stakeholders – to help create the conditions for a win-win in Asian aviation and beyond.

Speakers include:

•    AirAsia, Group CEO, Tony Fernandes
•    Airports of Thailand, Chairman, Prasong Poontaneat (TBC)
•    CAPA – Centre for Aviation, Chief Analyst, Brendan Sobie and Executive Chairman, Peter Harbison
