Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation releases 2006 targets

Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation Executive Chairman, Peter Harbison, today outlined the company’s strategic plans for 2006. Highlights include the launch of a major new airport/ATC finance and development conference with Airports Council International in Singapore later in the year (supported by CAAS), further expansion of the Centre’s information/data services offering and a push by the consulting unit for further airline restructuring assignments.

“2006 is a year of challenges ahead for the industry and we are well positioned to advise the industry on the best course of action through our unique range of solutions, including strategic consulting services, intelligence and data services, and niche summits for industry leaders”, said Mr Harbison.

Announcing the 2006 strategy, Mr Harbison paid tribute to the team of professionals employed by the Centre, including its expanding international network of consultants and representatives.

“We achieved rapid growth in 2005, adding new services to an expanding client and member base. 2006 will be no different, with several initiatives planned, including the expansion of our online statistical data and search capabilities, as well as new industry management reports, including a focus on emerging markets, such as the Middle East”, said Mr Harbison.

“We have consolidated our very successful office in India and expanded our consulting resources in the Singapore office. In 2006, we shall be expanding our presence more aggressively into China and Japan, giving us an unmatchable aviation presence – from the Suez Canal to the Bering Strait”.

In addition to major ongoing airline restructuring and turnaround projects, the Centre’s strategic consulting team has several significant assignments for start-up carriers, including business plan analysis for airlines in India and other markets. The Centre’s capability in airport privatisation studies and advice is expanding in line with increasing privatisation in the region as governments seek to exit airport ownership. The Centre is also developing its airport security advisory capability in 2006.

The Centre currently has four major Aviation Leadership Summits planned in 2006:

- India & Middle East Aviation Investor Summit, 3-4 April, Mumbai
- Airport Business Asia 2006, Late August, Singapore
- India & Middle East Low Cost Airline Symposium 2006, Delhi, Early October
- Aviation Outlook Summit 2007, Late November
