The full service airlines’ perspectives:

How will Asia’s airline market evolve over the next decade?

  • Operationally, and with fleet decisions
  • In distribution matters
  • Do Asia’s network airlines have a sustainable future?
  • What are the key components in new survival strategies for the network airlines – what do they have to do to survive and flourish?


Selling and paying: Turmoil & Irreversible changes ahead for airlines and agents?

Considering the comments of IATA & Kurt Knackstedt, airlines are changing distribution and payments strategies around the world, when can we expect major change in Asia and what should we prepare for?

The LCCs’ perspectives:

  • What market positions are the LCCs aiming at – what strategies are in the future?
  • How fast will they expand? – how sustainable are the massive order books of Asia’s LCCs?
  • What are their main challenges? – market access; human resources for growth; other LCCs
  • How will the large number of aircraft on order be used, and what equipment are passengers demanding?


The CAPA Great Debate: Full service airlines have no future

FSCs are under threat: Legacy sclerosis; ageing distribution systems; silo management structures; high costs; failure to understand big data implications; challenges of LCCs (short and long haul) and the Gulf carriers and Turkish Airlines – and China’s airlines.
