Updated 10MAR2020: The outbreak of COVID-19 / nCOV-2019 has impacted the planning of the IFATCA 2020 Conference. Singapore saw an early, but well-contained outbreak, and limited global spread, but in the past days, the global situation has rapidly deteriorated.

Specifically for our Conference, mandatory isolation or quarantine for operational personnel returning from travel could mean a negative impact on the global air navigation capacity in a time of need.

The Executive Board has continued to endeavour to hold the Conference in line with the principles detailed in the manual. However after reviewing the latest information and despite our best efforts, the Executive Board has determined that, in accordance with Article IV, Paragraph 1.1 of the Constitution, our Annual Conference cannot proceed as planned.

Over the coming days, the Executive Board will explore the possibility of organising a replacement event later in the year in line with provisions of the Manual. Further details will be provided as soon as possible.

People are reminded that it is their own responsibility to amend any hotel bookings.

The Executive Board thanks the Singapore Association and Organising Committee, all Member Associations, delegates, and conference attendees for their flexibility, patience, and understanding in this unprecedented circumstance.
