SINGAPORE AIRSHOW AVIATION LEADERSHIP SUMMIT (SAALS) 2020

The Singapore Airshow Aviation Leadership Summit is the only event of its kind in the industry that brings together high-level participants from regulators, the private sector, government and airline operators to address a wide range of hot topics from environment liberalisation and security challenges to salient strategic trends the region faces. 

Into its 7th edition in 2020, SAALS will once again welcome these key stakeholders in an exchange of ideas to advance the strategic interest and address the salient trends facing the aviation sector.

The Summit will take place on 9 & 10 February 2020 and is jointly organised by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), Experia Events, International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Singapore Ministry of Transport (MOT).

The only event of its kind
in the industry.

SAALS 2018 HIGHLIGHTS

With the theme “Reimagining Aviation’s Future”, the summit saw in-depth thought leadership discussions and served as a unique platform for industry players to engage government officials in advancing the strategic interests of the aviation sector.

The Summit brought together key stakeholders in aviation, including top government representatives, civil aviation authorities and senior executives of airlines, airline operators, aircraft manufacturers as well as the heads of the International Civil Organization (ICAO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to exchange valuable insights, network and strengthen the nexus between governments and the aviation industry.

PROGRAMME

Enhancing Aviation’s Value for Tomorrow

The value that aviation has created for mankind is incontrovertible. Since commercial air travel became available to the masses, it has been a major catalyst for social, cultural, and economic development. All around the world, aviation has connected peoples, enabled economic growth, and increased cultural exchanges for the betterment of societies and communities.

While the growth of aviation has created economic and social benefits, future growth will be confronted with several challenges, such as ensuring the safe passage of an increasing number of aircraft in the skies, mitigating the impact of air transport on the environment and surrounding communities, and sustaining profitable growth. The aviation community needs to enhance the value of aviation so as to create the conditions for sustainable future growth.

Opening Speeches

Air transport demand is projected to grow strongly over the next two decades. Air services policies, airport infrastructure, manpower capability and air traffic flow management will need to keep pace with the growth in demand for air travel. At the same time, competition amongst airlines and airports has been intensifying.

Cooperation, capacity building and capability development by stakeholders within the aviation system will be key to enhancing value. How can airlines and airports maximise growth opportunities? How can States work together to liberalise air transport policies to allow airlines to expand services to meet market demand? How can air navigation services providers, regulators and airlines collaborate to facilitate more aircraft movements through crowded skies safely and efficiently? How can the air transport industry transform its processes to realise greater efficiencies and provide passengers with a seamless and secure travel experience?

Aviation in the Digital Age

The rise of aviation was built on digital and technological advancements. From aircraft technologies enabling increasingly longer non-stop flights to air traffic management systems that allow for more efficient use of crowded airspace, digital innovations have enabled the growth of commercial aviation.

Going forward, the transformative impact of technology on aviation, especially with artificial intelligence and machine learning, can be game-changing, and enable the industry to overcome environmental, capacity, safety, and security challenges. But technology in and of itself is not fool proof. How can the industry overcome the risks and shortcomings within technology and digital systems, while continuing to harness its potential to catalyse growth? How can regulatory frameworks support the deployment of new technologies, while ensuring a safe and secure operating environment? What safeguards against cybersecurity threats are necessary to reassure passengers of the robustness of these systems?

Towards a Greener Aviation Industry

Air transport is poised to register stronger growth in the coming decades, providing considerable benefits to economies and societies across the globe. However, such growth could also increase the environmental footprint of aviation. As the effects of climate change continue to be felt across the world, the aviation industry is expected to do more to tackle one of the most critical challenges confronting the human race.

Through green innovation and technology, there is potential for the aviation community to advance on a greener pathway for a more liveable and sustainable future. How can industry and innovators work together to maximise the potential of green technologies? How can governments and industry collaborate going forward to drive the long-term sustainable development of aviation?
