Crisis Management

In the event of a crisis, it is essential that AAPA member airlines are prepared for any eventuality. Thus crisis management and emergency response planning play a pivotal role in the operations of an airline.

AAPA actively works with industry stakeholders in ensuring that member airlines and their stakeholders are prepared in an event of a crisis through various communication channels, forums and conferences. AAPA also promotes best practices amongst its member airlines, and encourages airlines to put in place mutual assistance arrangements with other airlines in an event of an aircraft emergency.

Health Crisis

AAPA recognises that the governing authority on health issues is the World Health Organisation (WHO). As a member of TERN (Tourism Emergency Response Network), AAPA is part of a global network that aims to ensure proper communication and collective action in case of health crises threatening the air transport and tourism industries.

Recognising that airlines need to incorporate the threat of health pandemics into their crisis management plans, AAPA strives to promote close interaction between airlines and other stakeholders on this front. AAPA members have raised the level of awareness and work closely with their local airport, health, and government authorities to establish comprehensive crisis plans.
