Ray Webster & Tony Davis: why they chose to speak at Aviation Outlook Summit 2006


(KUALA LUMPUR: 25 November 2005) Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation is pleased to announce that, after almost a decade at the helm of Europe’s leading LCC, Ray Webster, will be one of the Keynote Speakers at the upcoming Aviation Outlook 2006 Summit in Kuala Lumpur.

In his presentation, "Striving for excellence and innovation - learning from Europe's experiences", Ray Webster offers his views on competition between full service carriers, LCC subsidiaries and independent LCCs.

He will describe innovations in reducing costs and boosting ancillary revenues, as well as thoughts on the future evolution of global aviation markets, including yields trends, and implications for Asia.

Explaining why he chose to attend this landmark event in Asia, Mr Webster said he is delighted to share his experiences and lessons from the easyJet success story with Asia Pacific executives. “This CAPA Summit is a very important event in the year for the region. We would expect that all the principal decision-makers from Asia Pacific and Middle East industry will be there. So, I am delighted to be a Keynote speaker and I am looking forward to sharing my experience at easyJet with the Summit participants and to discovering who this year’s winners are - especially the Low Cost Airline of The Year!”, said Mr Webster.

Another keynote speaker is Tony Davis, CEO of Tiger Airways, who will address a panel session titled: "Fighting for efficiency - killing costs in a vicious marketplace".

Tony Davis said, “Tiger Airways is pleased to participate at the Aviation Outlook Summit 2006 in Kuala Lumpur on 5-6 December. We share a common goal with the organisers of the Summit to raise the bar in professionalism and thought leadership for the aviation industry in the region. Being a major player in the low cost carrier (LCC) arena, Tiger Airways has seen great progress in the acceptance of this new mode of travel, which has contributed to the growth of regional tourism and also made traveling more affordable for so many people across the Asia Pacific Region”.

There is not an airline in the world today which is satisfied with its cost base, while many airports are also striving to keep costs under control. In the panel session, Tony Davis, as well as other airport executives and industry experts, will highlight how to save money through an everyday fight for cost minimisation. This session also looks at the impact of fuel costs and the ways in which industry leaders deal with the issue.

The 2nd annual Asia Pacific and Middle East Aviation Outlook Summit will be held in Kuala Lumpur on 5-6 December and features a high-level programme packed with aviation industry leaders.
