Proud to be held for the first time in Baku, Azerbaijan
Helping to build the Silk Road in the Sky
A brand new event for a growing aviation region. This 2-day summit & exhibition will cover all aspects of the aviation and aerospace industry including airline development, safety, finance, growth opportunities, technologies, business aviation & airport infrastructure.
The Caucasus and Central Asia brings together new markets and the old - these former Soviet Union states alongside nations with a proud history in aviation and independent manufacturing such as Turkey and Iran. This is the meeting point of East and West with manufacturers, governments, service providers and regulators coming together to support the concept of a recognisable developing market.
CEOs from the region’s airlines will head up panel discussions on the issues and opportunities facing them in the current climate and heads of regional industry will also be invited to participate.
China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) launched in 2013 aiming to join together routes and trade across Europe, Asia and Africa has encouraged airport growth across the Silk Road. Many new airlines are now joining the market, international airlines are increasing their routes into the region and major local airlines such as Air Astana are posting record growth in passenger numbers and revenue for the first half of 2018. The prospects for this aviation market are strong.
Azerbaijan’s exciting modern capital city of Baku is the venue for this inaugural event, brought there by Times Aerospace, organisers of successful events in Africa and the Middle East. The region’s operators – airlines and business aviation – are modernising and renewing fleets, airports are developing for both passengers and cargo as tourist boards begin opening doors to a new generation of visitors.
