Michael Wilton, exhibition director for organiser Mack Brooks Exhibitions Asia Ltd, said, “The rising demand for air travel across the region is an overriding trend. This creates the need to continuously develop airports across the whole region. The exhibition serves this need and supports the industry to achieve growth. The show attracts key buyers and authorities from across the region who will experience products and equipment at the exhibition. This is a great opportunity to learn and keep abreast of the latest developments in the industry”.
Ng said, “Increasingly, technology and automation are becoming important themes, as airports seek to become more efficient amid rising labour cost, larger traffic volumes and shortage of manpower. CAAS and Changi Airport work closely with various stakeholders, such as airlines and ground handlers, to accelerate the adoption of technology for airport-wide programmes that would benefit the airport community and enhance passenger experience.
