She has extensive experience in the management of air cargo franchises, corporate management, strategic planning, planning and development of air cargo facilities, marine cargo terminal as well as transportation planning for the airport since the early inception of the New Airport Master Plan. She has a particular flair in applying operational research in the planning and design of airport. She is currently an Assistant General Manager – Aviation Logistics at Airport Authority. She is a visiting Assistant Professor in Transport Policy and Planning at The University of Hong Kong and a visiting lecturer in Airport Management and Planning at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
The management of airport is a complex system of people, cargo, aircrafts, multi-modal surface transport, telecommunication, information and money flow. Over the last decade, the policy in ground handling services in the international arena, in particular in Europe, has been undergoing deregulation. In Hong Kong, the policy to deregulate the ground handling services has been instigated where appropriate since the mid 1990s for the new airport at Chek Lap Kok. This seminar reviews the development of the policy to deregulate ground handling services and discuss the attributes for the effective management of aviation logistics services at an airport.
