2019 JITTI USA Civil Aviation Symposium

Air passenger transport in the Asia Pacific region has been steadily growing and reached 1.6 billion passengers in 2018. While air passengers in the region have increased, Japan hopes to achieve even greater targets of 40 million foreign visitors in 2020 and 60 million in 2030, and is implementing policies in order to address these increasing aviation demands. One major policy is to enhance the functions of Tokyo metropolitan airports by such measures as reviewing the flight paths to and from Haneda (Tokyo International Airport) and developing a third runway in Narita Airport. Another is to strengthen gateway functions at regional airports through such actions as airport management privatization utilizing the Concessions Method. 

  However, at the same time, the competitive environment for international civil aviation in the Asia Pacific region has drastically changed owing to the enhancement of long-haul direct flights from the U.S. to Asian destinations other than Japan, the construction of mega airports in Asian countries, and the rise of long-haul Low Cost Carriers (LCCs) , especially from Southeast Asian countries.

JITTI USA is pleased to invite experts in international civil aviation from aeronautical authorities and air carriers in Japan and the U.S. , and an airport operator in Japan, to discuss the future vision and aviation strategies of international civil aviation in the Asia Pacific region.
