A delegation from InterAviation Japan (IAJ) participated in the NBAA conference and exhibition that took place at the Las Vegas Convention Center 22-24 October. IAJ co-exhibited with World Fuel Services (WFS) at its impressive pavilion, which included booths for exhibitors, meeting rooms, reception areas and even bars for hosting guests.
“We’re very grateful to the team at WFS. They did an excellent job with design, planning and ensuring the pavilion was engaging for attendees throughout the conference,” noted Mr. Ben Hada, Client Services and Accounts Manager for IAJ, adding, “This is the ideal way for us to participate in NBAA.”
At NBAA, IAJ had the opportunity to meet established partners and customers, as well orient potential new clients on the many changes coming to business jet operations in Japan. The 2020 Olympics will mark a major turning point for business aviation in Japan. The event is expected to bring an unprecedented number of business jets to Japan, a country where the business aviation sector is relatively undeveloped. To meet the challenge, the Japan Civil Aviation Bureaus (JCAB) has established special operations procedures and expanded the number of parking spots for small aircraft. See related article.
Mr. Hada added, “We have experienced staff and all our own vehicles and equipment at Haneda and Narita airports, and are confident that we can manage the increased volume of traffic while continuing to provide the high standard of personalized service for which IAJ is known.”
