The Asian Business Aviation Association, (AsBAA) the region’s non-for-profit representative trade body for business aviation hosted its first Singapore Committee meeting under the leadership of its new Board of Directors, AsBAA said in a statement.
The meeting saw around 25 industry leaders and guest speaker, LinkedIn gather to discuss issues and opportunities for the business and general aviation industry in Singapore and the wider Southeast Asian region, the statement said.
“Singapore is a good environment for Business Aviation, however there are challenges faced by all sectors of the industry here. Increasing AsBAA’s visibility with the various Ministry departments, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Changhi Airport Group (CAG) will be crucial in ensuring that the contribution and value of business aviation is not overlooked” AsBAA Vice-Chairman, Gary Moran said.
“We plan to increase involvement and support from key business stakeholders and aircraft owners to make this possible. We are committed to rejuvenating and expanding the AsBAA membership in Southeast Asia to effectively represent the needs of our members here. With this, we will offer regular meetings, an enhanced programme of events, and support on pressing issues such as access, slots, and safety, particularly in relation to Seletar airport,” Moran added.
AsBAA also invited LinkedIn to deliver a presentation on digital marketing at the meeting in an effort to diversify the services it offers to its members.
The presentation focussed on new opportunities and creating a more connected aviation community through social and digital platforms.
