Conference Starts Yearlong Bizav PR Effort in Japan

 - January 29, 2007, 7:00 AM

In about a year Central Japan International Airport is scheduled to open, after which Nagoya Airport will focus on general aviation. A discussion on this development is one of several topics to be presented at a business aviation conference in Nagoya, Japan, on March 1 and 2. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Japan Business Aviation Association (JBAA), the event will begin a yearlong schedule of activities promoting international business aviation in Japan. Sponsors are also hoping the conference will spur interest by more companies to base aircraft in Japan. Only about 25 business jets are registered in the country, according to JBAA estimates, “despite its vast potential market and growing demand to fly elsewhere in East Asia, including China.” For more information, contact Minae Suzuki at +81-52-201-4277 or e-mail
