A three-day mission program that will include an Australia – Thailand aviation industry forum Flying Towards Safer Skies, one-on-one business matching and mini-exhibition.
Thailand has become a major aviation hub of Southeast Asia due to its strategic location in the centre of the region and growing tourism sector. Airports of Thailand’s (AOT) six international airports served 727,750 flights, 109,817,004 million passengers and 1,350,614 tonnes of freight and mail in 2015. This coupled with intense focus on aviation safety is driving increased demand for aviation related products and services including education and training to develop workforce skills and to operate the sector in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) requirements.
The Thai Government’s Aerospace Industrial Estate Development Plan (2016 – 2045) centred around U Tapao – Pattaya International Airport aims to develop an internationally focussed aviation maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) and training centre and will also be a focus of this mission.
