Organised by CAPA – Centre for Aviation (CAPA), an independent global purveyor of market intelligence and analysis of the aviation world, the CAPA Asia Aviation Summit 2017 will be held from 7 to 8 November 2017 at Capella Hotel Singapore.


“Singapore is a natural aviation hub in Southeast Asia and as such, CAPA has consistently chosen Singapore as the venue for our annual Asia Aviation Summit due to that flexibility in bringing together all the industry players from across the region. In addition, we love Singapore for the ease of organising our conference and the help provided on the ground. It’s a conference we look forward to every year and hosting it in and with Singapore is a pleasure,” said Stephen Pearse, Managing Director, CAPA – Centre for Aviation.


Besides its standing as a leading provider of strategic knowledge, CAPA also contributes to the growth and development of major trends in international aviation. As a result, the organisation provides business solutions for aviation professionals to assist in making strategic decisions. CAPA hosts industry events that gather aviation and corporate travel industry leaders to encourage knowledge sharing, debate and networking.


With consumers’ growing desire to travel and the corresponding means to do so, the demand for efficient and cost-effective air travel makes it essential for aviation businesses to keep up their robust aviation capabilities. The CAPA Asia Aviation Summit aims to empower the industry through keynote speakers and education sessions to maintain a competitive edge amidst these challenges, leverage technology and innovation, and elevate consumers’ travel experience.

for Excellence

This year’s CAPA Asia Aviation Summit will bring together up to 30 CEOs of leading air carriers based in Asia, as well as other key stakeholders and distinguished guests from the aviation and corporate travel industry. The event is expected to provide opportunities for attending executives to gain fresh insights and make business connections.

Some hot topics that will be explored under the summit’s agenda are the evolution of low-cost and hybrid carriers and the survival of full-service flights, key technology trends in airline distribution in Asia, as well as a look into the future of aviation and corporate travel in 2018 and beyond.

With a notable list of speakers that includes Lim Ching Kiat, managing director of Air Hub Development at Changi Airport; Peter Bellew, group chief executive officer of Malaysia Airlines; and Yuji Hirako, president and chief executive officer of ANA, among others, the summit is a must-attend for organisations that have links with Asian aviation.

Taking place alongside the CAPA Asia Aviation Summit are two other summits: the CAPA Corporate Travel Innovation Summit and the CAPA Asia Pacific Aviation Awards for Excellence 2017. The former will touch on important views shared by key corporate travel buyers, airlines, and travel management companies, while the latter is an awards ceremony sponsored by travel commerce platform Travelport that celebrates strategic excellence in the aviation industry since 2002.

Initially limited only to the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions, the CAPA Asia Pacific Aviation Awards for Excellence was later expanded to include all regions. This year, it will be presented separately at two gala dinners – one for the global industry in London on 12 October, and one for Asia Pacific to be held in Singapore on 7 November.

Some of the prestigious awards – each with a CAPA international and CAPA Asia Pacific edition – up for grabs include Airline of the Year, Airport of the Year and Innovation of the Year.
