Singapore’s CAAS signs MOU to grow APAC aviation


AAV_Bulletin_NEWSThe Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to strengthen collaboration to support the growth of aviation in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region. Under the MOU, CAAS and IATA will work together on initiatives in the areas of aviation sustainability, air traffic management, aviation safety and aviation training.

The key initiatives under the MOU include:

  • Aviation Sustainability: Development of initiatives to advance sustainable aviation for Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region. These include the development of a Sustainable Aviation Fuels accounting and reporting system.
  • Air Traffic Management: Development and implementation of a regional training cooperation framework to improve regional air navigation services performance.
  • Aviation Safety: Development of solutions and provision of operational safety data and expertise to support the identification and mitigation of safety risks, including through data-driven safety initiatives.
  • Aviation Training: Development and provision of training courses and assistance to local and international trainees.

Han Kok Juan, Director-General of CAAS said, “Singapore is a small island state for which international aviation is existential for our survival. We find in IATA a natural partner. We are like-minded. We share the same commitment to serve the international aviation community. Coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic and with aviation poised for growth, the CAAS-IATA MOU cements this partnership and takes it to a higher level. By bringing our teams closer together, we hope to unlock the many opportunities to provide new connectivity, products and services to serve airlines and air passengers better, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Willie Walsh, Director General of IATA said, “IATA has a long history in Singapore, having established our office in 1969. Singapore is IATA’s home in Asia-Pacific. From here we manage activities to support the sustainable development of airlines and the aviation industry. CAAS has always been an important partner for IATA and we are delighted to deepen this collaboration through this MoU. We look forward to a continuing close relationship that strengthens aviation’s benefits for Singapore and across the Asia-Pacific region.”
