This will be the second time that Singapore will host the IATA AGM. Thelast time the IATA AGM was held in Singapore was in 2004 when theindustry took the decision to move to 100% e-ticketing globally.

The event will include a presentation of the results of IATA’s Vision2050 initiative – a brain storming session that was also held inSingapore earlier this year.

The 67th IATA AGM was originally scheduled to be held in Cairo, Egypt.“We regret not being able to host this event in Egypt as originallyplanned. We look forward to hosting a future AGM in Egypt when itspolitical transition is complete,” said Bisignani, IATA’s DirectorGeneral and CEO.

“Singapore is a great aviation city having built its success on globalconnectivity. The government has always facilitated a healthy aviationsector – one that can drive the greatest economic benefits for thenational economy. Today Singapore is home to one of the world’s topairlines and one of its best airports,” said Bisignani.
