Aviation Outlook, Consolidation, Mergers & Acquisitions
South Asia aviation continues to boom. With the industry’s upward trend some of the major players are merging with a view to consolidate and stabilise in the area. The impact of liberalisation of Air services in the region has been dramatic paving the way for greater choice, increased capacity and cheaper fares to the discerning customer.
We have already seen how competition, lower fares and increasing routes have provided a boost to trade and tourism in the region. Hundreds of new aircraft are being ordered, infrastructure at airports is improving and passenger numbers are growing faster in India than anywhere else.
Domestic air travel is forecast to grow by 25% over the next 5 years; the sky is certainly ‘no limit’ for the Indian Aviation market. Carriers, the government and aircraft manufacturers are working overtime to meet this increasing demand. The potential of the market is enormous and by 2010, India's fleet strength will stand at 500-550 and growth is expected to continue apace. New airlines catering to Cargo, Regional and International Low cost sectors will herald the next phase of aviation development in the region.
The stronger players through mergers may remain as the lasting players What will this mean for the economy and the industry? What are the significant benefits for the region? And what are the airlines plans to maintain profitability and stability in the region? Also, how do International airlines perceive the Indian market? What challenges do they face in flying to India? What does it mean for Manufacturers, Suppliers, Service Providers and Aviation professionals?
These and many other key issues will be discussed by some of the leading aviation players in the region.
