2024 Aviation Summit

Forums & Summits

The Philippine aviation industry depicts a dynamic and resilient sector that has weathered several hurdles over the years. Domestic travel has reached pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2023, while international travel recovery will occur sometime in 2026. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is seen to lead in traffic growth in the next 20 years. To cater to the growing demand for air travel, the government has already laid the foundation for airport rehabilitation and congestion improvement. The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has been privatized and will be operated by a private consortium by September 2024. Nonetheless, headwinds that come with progress need to be addressed to attract more investment and assure long-term economic growth.

Infrastructure development, safety concerns, regulatory framework, and the need for competent human capital, among others, are all pivotal areas that require collective attention to promote continued advancement in the industry. Recognizing Philippine aviation as a main catalyst for trade and investment, overcoming current challenges and riding on the momentum will require strong interventions from all players in the aviation sector. Likewise, it is imperative for industry stakeholders to align aviation policies with international standards and policies as well as forge partnerships with ancillary sectors.

As we fly forward, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) and the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) are once again joining forces in organizing the 2024 Aviation Summit. Building on the gains of the 2023 installment, this year's Summit intends to draw deeper awareness of aviation's critical role in the Philippine economic progress and push for advocacies that promote growth, sustainability, efficiency, and safety within the sector both internationally and internationally.

To catalyze the transformation of the Philippine aviation sector into a frontrunner among Asian counterparts by 2028, a critical imperative emerges: the urgent overhaul of existing laws and regulations. Beyond mere airline operations, the dynamic areas of business and general aviation are poised to play pivotal roles in the country's development trajectory and its support industries. Achieving competitiveness commensurate with regional peers will foster increased investment across aviation education, maintenance and repair organizations, fleet modernization and upgrades, and operational enhancements, all aimed at ensuring the safe and efficient utilization of airspace and physical infrastructures.
