Raffles City Convention Centre
9 - 10 February 2014

The SAALS, held in conjunction with the Singapore Airshow, is a collaborative effort by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), Experia Events Pte Ltd, International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Ministry of Transport (MOT).

This global event brings together key aviation stakeholders for a frank exchange of views on key issues and challenges facing aviation. The Summit offers a unique platform for airlines, airport operators, air navigation service providers, and manufacturers to dialogue with government and regulatory leaders.


'Shaping the Next Century of Commercial Aviation'
The second century of commercial aviation begins in 2014. Commercial aviation began on 1 January 1914 when Tony Jannus piloted a flight carrying a single passenger on a 23-minute air journey between Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida. Little would he have expected aviation to become the industry it is today, carrying over three billion passengers and 48 million tonnes of cargo. Aviation is a vital driver of economic growth and connectivity, supporting 57 million jobs worldwide and US$2.2 trillion of economic activity, equivalent to 3.5% of global Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Despite the 100 year history, the return on capital invested in the airline industry worldwide is nowhere near the 7.5% investors expect. Governments, infrastructure providers, and suppliers are challenged to support aviation's growth. If aviation is to deliver on its potential, all partners in the aviation value chain will require new thinking and coordinated action.

Attendance for this summit is strictly by invitation only.
