The Asia Pacific Airline Training Summit

9th - 11th September, 2024.

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore


As the aviation industry continues to rebound from the pandemic, Asia-Pacific airlines are leading the charge with impressive growth figures.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) data, Asian carriers saw a 27.0% year-on-year increase in demand, with capacity up 26.0% and load factors rising to 81.6%. This growth cements the Asia-Pacific region as a crucial driver of the global aviation recovery, contributing to 42% of the industry's year-on-year increase in May.

This robust performance highlights the critical importance of

APATS 2024

, set to take place in Singapore from September 9-11th. The Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium (APATS) is a pivotal event for the region's training market, offering unparalleled opportunities for aviation professionals to engage with the latest industry developments, share best practices, and foster partnerships.

As Middle Eastern airlines also reported a significant 9.7% year-on-year increase in demand, with particularly strong routes between Asia and the Middle East standing 32% higher than in 2019, the interconnectedness of these regions underscores the need for advanced training and collaboration. APATS 2024 will provide a platform for discussing these trends and preparing for future demands on the aviation workforce.

The global trend of increasing travel demand, reflected in a 10.7% year-on-year increase in May and record seat occupancy at 83.4%, indicates that the growth trajectory is set to continue.

This surge places additional pressure on air navigation service providers (ANSPs), with Europe experiencing 5.2 million minutes of air traffic control delays even before the peak season, and the US facing significant challenges over the Memorial Day weekend.

Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General, emphasised the need for ANSPs to meet the high expectations of airlines and travellers alike, calling for improved efficiency to ensure smooth operations during peak travel periods.

As the aviation industry navigates these challenges, the role of

becomes increasingly vital. By bringing together experts and stakeholders from across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond, APATS 2024 will be instrumental in shaping the future of aviation training and ensuring that the industry can meet the demands of a rapidly growing market.
