The Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) is a trade association of major scheduled international airlines based in the Asia-Pacific region. Established in 1966 as the Orient Airlines Research Bureau and based today in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the primary purpose of the AAPA is to serve as a common forum for the articulation of members’ views on matters and issues of common interest, to foster close cooperation, and to bring about an atmosphere conducive to the stimulation of the travel and tourism industry.

Andrew Herdman has held the position of Director General of the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) since November 2004. Mr Eran-Tasker joined the AAPA as Technical Director in July 2004, while Ms Beatrice Lim joined the AAPA as Commercial Director in July 2005. .[1]



The Association currently has fifteen member airlines from the Asia-Pacific region:

They collectively carry 285 million passengers and 10 million tonnes of cargo, representing approximately one-fifth of global air passenger traffic and one-third of global air cargo traffic respectively.[2]
