    As the fastest growing international market in the world, southeast Asia has spawned ground-breaking international LCCs, cross border JV models and even LCC alliances. An essentially liberal bilateral approach by governments in the region has permitted this market driven proliferation, partially aided by the application of ASEAN open skies principles. This has also given the opportunity for discussions at multilateral level with the EU and the potential for a significant dialogue, with common goals. There is however residual resistance to full liberalisation as the framers of the ASEAN multilateral proposed.

    • The future of the bloc – will ASEAN governments pursue an EU-like approach to aviation?
    • Will the bloc extend to include Asia Pacific?
    • Will cross-border JVs become redundant as the skies liberalise in Southeast Asia, allowing regional international connectivity?
    • To what extent is the cross border JV a commercial vs a regulatory model?
    • How are airlines lobbying governments to open as many markets as they can in order to reduce their risk of being exposed to only a few key markets?
    • Is competition too fierce in ASEAN domestic markets? Is further expansion from foreign entities via cross border JVs rational?

    Air cargo is viewed by many passenger carriers as a “stepchild,” but changes in the global supply chain have given cargo greater prominence. The surge in growth of “e-commerce” has transformed consumer behaviour and has driven major increases in demand. Moreover, for countries such as the State of Qatar, having unfettered access to air cargo markets is a critical matter of national security.

    • What forces are shaping the global cargo market? Does the regulatory framework support or hinder the growth of the industry
    • What are the challenges to cargo growth?
    • Safety and security issues

    Just as airlines begin to savour the prospect of financial sustainability, the threat of failing to meet sustainability goals can quickly replace that challenge. In the area of climate change, of course, national and EU emissions targets provide clear goals for airlines (and airports) to plan for. But the rapid growth of the industry intensifies the need to act quickly and effectively. And sustainability relates to more than simply our approach to climate change.

    • Why does industry need to earn its licence to grow?
    • What external pressures are we seeing to challenge aviation’s sustainability record?
    • Status of EU ETS/CORSIA and overlap of national emission schemes with CORSIA
    • Noise regulation as a challenge to growth
    • The impact of illegal wildlife trafficking and industry’s efforts to save iconic species
    • How to drive the commercial deployment of sustainable aviation fuels as a pillar of industry’s climate action strategy

    Since June 2017 Qatar Airways has had to operate under the imposition of an air space blockade by neighbouring countries, forcing the airline to operate longer routes and to seek new markets to replace highly profitable established markets in the blockading countries. We ask GCEO, HE Akbar Al Baker, how Qatar Airways is dealing with these challenges, his plan for returning the airline back to profitability in particular in the face of rising fuel prices and the potential for the blockade to continue into the long term

    The EU has played a vital leadership role in aviation in Europe and the North Atlantic and, increasingly, globally. In recent years the face of the airline industry has changed rapidly, with new entrants, new airline types and new aircraft all contributing to a very different environment compared with 20 years ago. The panel will review the extent and relevance of these developments and discuss where the industry – and its regulation – might be heading.
