Royal Thai Air Force Commander-In-Chief Makes Introductory Visit to Singapore

 

Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) Air Chief Marshal (ACM) Alongkorn Vannarot called on Senior Minister of State for Defence Heng Chee How at the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) this afternoon. During the meeting, both sides reaffirmed the close and long-standing defence relations between Singapore and Thailand, and discussed ways to deepen defence cooperation between both air forces. 

 

ACM Alongkorn, who is on his introductory visit to Singapore from 15 to 16 December 2022, also called on Chief of Air Force Major-General Kelvin Khong after reviewing the Guard of Honour at MINDEF, and was presented the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Honorary Wings award for his significant contributions towards strengthening the bilateral relations between both air forces.

 

ACM Alongkorn's visit underscores the close and long-standing bilateral defence relations between Singapore and Thailand. The RSAF and the RTAF interact regularly through high-level visits, professional exchanges, courses, and exercises such as Exercise Cope Tiger. Such interactions have enhanced the professionalism and mutual understanding between the personnel of both air forces.
