CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit highlights opportunities in Australia’s international market
A common theme in the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit 2016 in Brisbane on 4 and 5-Aug-2016 was opportunities in Australia’s international market. Australia is experiencing rapid inbound and outbound growth, opening up opportunities for airports, local airlines and foreign airlines.
Australia-China in particular is a market in the spotlight following 22% growth in inbound visitors from China in 2015. However, there are also opportunities to develop new routes to other Asian countries and the more mature markets in Europe and North America, driven partially by new aircraft technology.
The Summit attracted over 40 airlines and 40 airports. Jetstar Group CEO Jayne Hrdlicka and Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce opened both days of the summit with stimulating keynote addresses to over 400 delegates.
