Airport Development


The Centre’s Executive Chairman, Peter Harbison, stated “the objective of Airport Development 2006 is to bring together global aviation investor and strategic interests in airport and ANS development, focusing the global spotlight on Asia Pacific, Middle East and Eastern European issues”.

“This global aviation interest highlights the need to share experiences in state of the art finance/investments, regulations & policies, privatisation, retail strategies, latest infrastructure, strategic and new technology requirements for airports in these rapidly emerging markets”, he said.

Airport Development 2006 will be held at the prestigious Raffles City Convention Centre in Singapore, from 29 August to 2 September 2006. It is organised by CAPA with key partners, including Airports Council International (ACI) and IJK and Associates, supported by Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO).

ACI members committed a record USD36 billion on capital expenditure in 2005, following USD31 billion in 2004. The Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation estimates approximately USD170 billion in airport expenditure has been announced (globally), mostly falling within next five years. The Centre also estimates the global airport privatisation pipeline (currently around 40-50 airports) is valued at up to USD40 billion, which will keep credit quality under pressure.
The confirmed speaker list already includes many of the leading participants in the global airport sector, including:
