SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reapra Aviation Partners launched this month, specializing in high-value, low-cost strategic solutions for the region’s aviation stakeholders. This Singapore aviation company will focus on collaborating with partners in the aviation space and is led by 39-year old regional low-cost carrier veteran, Priveen Raj Naidu. Priveen started his career with Tony Fernandes’ AirAsia in 2003 as part of a two-man team that set up the airline in Singapore, and thereafter with the group branding team. Post Airasia, Priveen has taken on several key positions within and beyond the aviation space.
Realizing that there is need to empower regional aviation stakeholders, Reapra Aviation Partners will open the gateway for economies in the region through improving the competitiveness of these destinations and its’ key players. Their intent is to create a new economy through reinventing and enabling new destinations within Asia.
“We all know that transportation into any country is key to opening up local economies. At Reapra Aviation Partners, we have identified approximately 110 airports and 7 airlines that would benefit immediately from our initiative. We will also be working alongside governments to set up new airports and airlines to increase distribution channels into their regions. Our motto of Innovating, Enabling and Empowering is testament to our belief that change does not need to be Expensive”, said Priveen. “The aviation space has changed drastically over the past decade. It's no longer about aircrafts and terminals only. In today's aviation commerce, it's about marrying the commercial infrastructure, MRO, processes, retail, branding and much more. With this in mind, we have put together a consortium of experts from different industries. Reapra Aviation Partners will be leading this team of Strategic partners comprising DHL, Optimal Cost, The Gamechangers, GushCloud, Positive Performance Consulting and an independent travel meta search company to provide our clients, a one-stop shop,” Priveen added.
“We are excited to bring this needed change to the region, and believe that this step forward would add a new layer of destination options for travelers. Tony redefined the way we travel in this region through the introduction of AirAsia 15 years ago, and we are now confident that through Reapra Aviation Partners, we can give travelers more destinations and adventures to fly to. We are looking to improve and turnaround 10 destinations in the next 8 quarters. We want to help our Asian neighbors increase their passenger arrivals, and airlines to increase their load factors.
Truth be told, we will need the blessings and the buy-in from all the industry stakeholders, airlines and airport policymakers to share this vision, but nevertheless, we remain undaunted and confident that the ASEAN countries will share the collective vision of One ASEAN United”, Concluded the chief of Reapra Aviation Partners.
