HFW Aero Magazine - Edition 5 - March 2022
Welcome to our latest Asia edition of HFW Aero, our quarterly update of the legal, commercial and regulatory issues affecting the aviation industry.
In this Asia edition, which follows hot on the heels of the Singapore Airshow last month, we feature IATA’s Jane Hoskisson as she looks back on her career and how her own experiences have shaped her work at IATA pioneering the 25by2025 campaign. Jane shares valuable advice for companies on how to create the best possible conditions for the success of women in their organisations, starting with data.
We are fortunate to feature a fascinating “In Conversation” piece with Changi Airport Group’s Gerald Ng, who provides a valuable insight into the impressive work CAG is doing to achieve net zero carbon emissions. This is a topical issue with the imminent publication of Singapore’s Sustainable Blueprint – Singapore’s response to the challenges faced and a framework to guide Singapore’s sustainability efforts to 2030.
HFW’s Barry Vitou and Anne-Marie Ottaway from our Global Investigations and Enforcement Team provide guidance for our aviation clients on the importance of due diligence and robust contracts in a post-covid world as the industry experiences significant change.
We also look at the emerging EVTOL market in Singapore and in our Global News roundup we look at topics including new Brazilian legislation making life simpler for foreign airlines, a UK framework for delayed flight compensation and sustainability for aviation lessors.
We are proud to serve the aviation industry in this vibrant and exciting part of the world. Please do get in touch if you’d like to talk to us more about any of the topics or issues we have featured.
