The Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA), formerly Orient Airlines Association, Inc.,[1] is a trade association of major scheduled international airlines based in the Asia-Pacific region. Established in 1966 with headquarters in Makati, Philippines, the association has moved to its present headquarters in Menara Prestige, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The primary purpose of the AAPA is to serve as a common forum for the articulation of members’ views on matters and issues of common interest, to foster close cooperation, and to bring about an atmosphere conducive to the stimulation of the travel and tourism industry.

Andrew Herdman has held the position of Director General of the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) since November 2004. Mr Eran-Tasker joined the AAPA as Technical Director in July 2004, while Ms Beatrice Lim joined the AAPA as Commercial Director in July 2005. .[2]
