The Asia-Pacific Aviation Sectors : A Company and Industry Analysis (August 2007)

This report updates the previous Asia-Pacific aviation report, focusing on the markets in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore
Current Environment - Key Points
- Asian carriers have rationalized their fleets and simplified their business to reduce the costs of complexity
- According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), passenger traffic in the Asia- Pacific rose 6.2% year-on-year in the first four months of 2007
- Strong demand for travel allowed airlines to revise their fares and fuel surcharges, to offset the high cost of fuel
- The recent China-US air services agreement is a step in the right direction - giving airlines greater freedom to serve passengers effectively. - Asia-s low-cost carriers have carved out routes in India, China and across much of South East Asia
- Airlines in China benefited from solid traffic growth, spurred by the opening of more flight paths, deregulation of ticket prices and more liberal bilateral air services agreements with other countries.
Industry Profile - Key Points
- Low-cost carriers including AirAsia, Lion Air and Virgin Blue have cut into the business of full- service airlines, forcing down ticket prices and substantially reshaping the travel industry across the Asia-Pacific
- Fuel now represents the highest cost item after labor, accounting for close to one third of airlines- total operating costs, according to the Association of Asia-Pacific Airlines (AAPA). - New airports in South East Asia are helping to boost the region-s economic, social and tourism development
- Asia-Pacific airlines are buying new planes to replace older models and to support expansion of their operations
- Asian airports and airlines have tightened security since the foiled August 10, 2006 terrorist plot that took place in London
- China-s closely guarded civil aviation sector is now characterized by greater openness and competition
Market Trends and Outlook - Key Points
- Airlines are expected to penetrate the Chinese market with more destinations and landing slots
- Plane makers are likely to see huge growth in sales from carriers in the Asia-Pacific. - High oil prices will continue to squeeze airline margins, forcing them to be more cost conscious than ever
- Low-cost carriers will continue to drive down airfares on some regional routes, especially on flights within South East Asia
- IATA has projected total worldwide industry profit of approximately US$3.8 billion for 2007
- Greater integration among airlines, increased prosperity and aggressive promotional efforts by carriers will continue to spur traffic growth
