MESSAGE FROM CHAIRMAN

We have not lost hope and is not retreating, but we are even more determined to prepare our personnel and systems for full operation, to be ready to take action as soon as the situations in Thailand and the world return to normal.

I am an economist and I always remember that when drafting a plan, we must assume that if all things are being equal and unchanged, then how should our actions be plotted to bring about positive results for our own good.

In this regard, the likelihood of achieving planned results is however, almost non-existent, because in the real world nothing is static and all factors are in constant flux.

Over the past year up until today, nontheless, it is the first time that we have experienced this apparent stillness. No assumption is needed.

It is thus an opportune moment (one that will not likely manifest again) for AAV to take advantage of this state of stillness to draw its plans with the utmost accuracy and to ensure the most benefit for its shareholders and all its stakeholders.

In my role as Chairman of the Board, kindly allow me to assure all of our shareholders and stakeholders that we have not lost hope and is not retreating, but we are even more determined to prepare our personnel and systems for full operation, to be ready to take action as soon as the situations in Thailand and the world return to normal.

We are confident that the world still needs air travel and still believe in our motto "Everyone Can Fly". We see this halt as a temporary situation, similar to pressing ‘Pause & Play’ buttons.

We are hopeful that our shareholders and stakeholders will continue to support us and treat each other the way we have always been.

Mr. Vichate Tantiwanich
Chairman of the Board
