North American Airlines face a mixed outlook for 2020 as uncertainty over the grounding of Boeing 737 MAX narrowbodies lingers and the prospects of weakening economic trends continue to grow. There’s growing concern that an imbalance between supply and demand will occur once the MAX returns to service, particularly so in the US, which would create pricing pressure.
The CAPA America’s Aviation & LCCs Summit, to be held on 15-16 October 2020 will tap into these issues over two days of thought provoking discussion. This high level forum will also examine the geopolitical outlook and its potential changes following the 2020 election, airline infrastructure reform, as well as the continued development of route economics as new aircraft technology opens up ultra long haul markets. The disruptive role of new distribution options and an increasingly demanding customer profile will inevitably be a key feature as 2020 heralds the next generation of developments in this area.
New to the 2020 event will be an injection of stimulating discussion on the evolving LCC market. North American LCCs are the most mature in the world, but recently they’ve faced headwinds to keep costs competitive while increasing revenue, as ULCCs become a significant force.
The dedicated LCC Summit sessions will assess the current state of the competitive LCC landscape, how to improve profitability and unlock sustainable growth prospects in key markets. As domestic pressures increase, strategies now stimulate trans Pacific, trans Atlantic, Latin American and Canadian network thinking.
In line with previous years, the Summit will attract hundreds of senior aviation and transport executives, airports, political leaders, industry experts and suppliers – not just from North America, but across the globe.
