As an integral organisation within the international aviation community, CAAS contributes expertise and resources towards the continued development and harmonisation of international aviation policies and standards to ensure safe, secure, efficient and sustainable air transport globally.
Singapore joined the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as a Contracting State on 20 May 1966, following our independence in 1965. Since then, within the global aviation framework of ICAO and through close cooperation with ICAO Member States, Singapore has developed into a major aviation hub in the Asia Pacific, providing a comprehensive range of aviation services to the world.
Singapore shares ICAO’s vision of promoting safety, security, environmental protection and sustainability in civil aviation globally. As with all other ICAO Contracting States, Singapore has benefited from the international aviation framework, and is attuned to the importance of international aviation as a vital mode of transportation in a globalised world and its contributions to the socio-economic progress of a country, particularly island States. We are committed to contributing our resources and expertise to the growth of civil aviation as a safe, secure, reliable and efficient mode of transportation worldwide. We are also honoured for the opportunity to serve on the Council of ICAO since 2003 and the Air Navigation Commission since 2005, and will do our utmost to further ICAO’s work.
