50 airline delegates already confirmed for CAPA Aviation Finance Summit Asia, Singapore, 20/21 March

Press Release

CAPA is pleased to announce a new aviation finance event for Asia - one which promises to deliver the content every aviation finance and aerospace professional needs to know: hard facts about airline fleet and financing plans directly from the airlines themselves.

Rather than serving up a sponsor-driven agenda, CAPA will assemble up to 18 Asia Pacific carriers, big and small, to present their fleet and financing plans to the audience within a series of 10-minute investor-roadshow style presentations. Up to 40 airlines will be participating in the broader event, the CAPA Aviation Finance Summit - Asia. The event will include the unique Fleet MarketPlace - where all participating airlines will occupy a designated space within the exhibition area to meet with finance sector participants in a relaxed setting.
