Subhas Menon joined the Association of Asia-Pacific Airlines in March 2020. Menon has over 35 years of  experience in international aviation with the Singapore Airlines Group, having served in a wide variety of roles including international and government relations, marketing, product development, logistics, as well as country and regional management. As regional vice president for an Asian airline in various regions around the world, and having also served as chief executive of SilkAir, Menon is more than familiar with the Asian airline environment, its market dynamics and the region’s diverse political landscape.  Building on his early experience in international relations, he has well-developed lobbying and negotiation skills as well as dealing with government affairs, which makes him well-placed to undertake the kind of advocacy and lobbying activities AAPA conducts as a trade association on behalf of its member airlines. He is a graduate of the National University of Singapore, with a Bachelor of Social Science (Honours) in Sociology.
