Event Summary

Air passenger transport in the Asia Pacific region has been steadily growing and reached 1.6 billion passengers in 2018. 

Japan hopes to achieve even greater targets of 40 million foreign visitors in 2020 and 60 million in 2030, and is implementing policies such as reviewing the flight paths of Haneda Airport,developing a third runway in Narita Airport and promoting airport management privatization utilizing the Concessions Method.

In addition, the Asia Pacific region has drastically changed owing to the enhancement of long-haul direct flights from the U.S. to Asian destinations, the construction of mega airports in Asian countries, and the rise of Low Cost Carriers.

JTTRI is pleased to invite experts in international civil aviation to discuss the future vision and strategies of international civil aviation in the Asia Pacific region.
