Adelaide Airport has welcomed the announcement by CAPA – Centre for Aviation (CAPA) – the leading provider of independent aviation market intelligence, analysis and data services – that the airport will host the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit in 2022 together with the South Australian Tourism Commission.
Representatives from Adelaide Airport attended this year’s CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit held in Sydney last week to make the announcement to 300+ aviation, travel and corporate travel delegates from across the country, as well as 170+ virtual delegates streaming the event live around the world.
The CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit will be held in September 2022 to explore a range of issues facing the industry – with a focus on domestic and international capacity recovery as well as sustainable aviation.
The Summit is expected to again bring more than 300 aviation and corporate travel executives from airlines, airports and suppliers together in what is widely regarded as the largest strategic aviation summit in the Australia Pacific region.
The Summit will also attract airline leaders from across the aviation industry, with past speakers including the chief executives of Qantas, Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, Jetstar, Etihad, Garuda Indonesia, Citilink, Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei Airlines, Fiji Airways, Hawaiian Airlines, SriLankan Airlines, AirAsia X, Scoot, Nok Air, VietJet, Cebu Pacific and Regional Express.
Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Brenton Cox, said the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit offered an exciting opportunity to showcase to airlines and the aviation industry what Adelaide and South Australia had to offer.
“Adelaide was Australia’s fastest growing airport for international passenger numbers before the pandemic – we’re keen to recover and then further grow our international network over the next few years,” Mr Cox said.
