The aviation industry remains an industry that is heavily regulated. Regulations governing the industry include safety, security, passenger facilitation and commercial practices.
AAPA works to promote the harmonisation of regulations and the liberalisation of the industry, including to but not limited to the following:
- Passenger Facilitation Legislations
- Cargo Facilitation Legislations
Passenger Facilitation Legislation
AAPA member airlines are recognised leaders in standards of service and are committed to the safe transport of all passengers in a non-discriminatory manner.
AAPA supports its members through coordinating forums that members from the operational departments are able to share experiences in compliance to certain regulations, with the aim of promoting best practices amongst members whilst at the same time ensuring that all passengers are carried in a non-discriminative manner. AAPA also actively assists members in consultations sought by national and regional agencies, representing its members in providing Asia Pacific industry’s perspective and comments to proposed legislation.
Cargo Facilitation Legislation
The importance of air cargo transportation has been increasing over recent years as a result of economic globalisation. Air freight is a reliable and high-quality transportation method used especially for high value cargo, or cargo that is highly perishable or time sensitive.
AAPA supports and works closely with the cargo arms of member airlines in discussing cargo facilitation legislations that are impacting cargo operations.
