IATA has confirmed it will hold its 67th Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Singapore from 5-7 June 2011.

The AGM attracts about 800 delegates, including some 150-200 CEOs from airlines, manufacturers, airports and other industry partners.

Giovanni Bisignani, IATAs Director General and CEO, said, Singapore is a great aviation city having built its success on global connectivity. The government has always facilitated a healthy aviation sector one that can drive the greatest economic benefits for the national economy. Today Singapore is home to one of the worlds top airlines and one of its best airports. It will be a great host for the 67th IATA AGM.

This will be the second time that Singapore will host the IATA AGM. The last time the IATA AGM was held in Singapore was in 2004 when the industry took the historic decision to move to 100% e-ticketing globally. This year, the AGM will take place as the industry continues its recovery from the global financial crisis. The meetings agenda will comprise the major topics facing air transport today, including the drive for even better environmental performance, the impact of rising fuel prices on weak industry profitability and efficiency gains through technology. One highlight of the event will be a long-term look at aviations future with the presentation of the results of IATAs Vision 2050 initiative.

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 originally planned. We look forward to hosting a future AGM in Egypt when its political transition is complete, said Bisignani.
