    Qantas and its LCC subsidiary Jetstar has experienced strong leisure demand following the easing of domestic border restrictions within Australia in 2021. Group CEO Alan Joyce stated the carriers domestic market share (including Jetstar) increased to approximately 70% in H1FY2021, which was assisted by more than 20 large corporate accounts and growth in small to medium sized enterprises selecting Qantas. 

    Improved planning processes have allowed for rapid network and schedule changes to maximise revenue opportunities during border restrictions and put the carrier in a stronger position than most in 2021.

    The carrier also opened sales for international travel from the end of Oct-2021, with the most searched service being Perth-London, "by miles" confirmed Mr Joyce. According to the CEO, passengers "don't want to stop somewhere to get to Europe", noting that the carrier's proposed Project Sunrise business case "may be even stronger" in the post coronavirus world.

The carrier operates a network of regional services within Asia and the Subcontinent, as well as services to the Middle East and Europe and several unique destinations which are not served by any other international carrier.  

     

    During the pandemic the carrier significantly expanded their cargo operations and completed an Airbus A330 freighter conversion in-house with plans to convert a second aircraft and induct dedicated freighters by the third quarter of 2021. The airline has been looking into new MRO opportunities either through joint ventures to set up a new MRO facility or by using the existing hangars and workshop capacity under a franchise.

    The Asia-Pacific region was initially hit hard by the pandemic, probably more so than the other regions. But some of the key Asia-Pacific markets have also recovered more quickly than those in other parts of the world. While borders generally remain closed, or are subject to quarantine restrictions that have a similar effect on travel, there have been some so-called green lanes established for essential travel, but in general the hoped-for travel bubbles have been slow to develop.

    Recent weeks have seen increased waves of the virus resurfacing in countries who had believed to have COVID-19 under control. This return however is not unexpected and has emphasised the need for practical, data-driven steps to opening up in a safe means. In this session we explore these methods and provide clear examples of required action.

    • How are markets performing in Asia-Pacific?

    • What practical, data-driven steps should each country take to opening up?

    • Are governments investing enough in technology, processes, infrastructure? 

    • What impact are continued waves in countries such as Japan and South Korea have on the region?

    • What impact is this having on hubs like Singapore?

    • Are bilateral corridors effective in opening up markets?

    Eurowings, CEO, Jens Bischof

    Eurowings is the Lufthansa Group’s low cost airline and specialises in low cost direct flights within Europe. The carrier commenced services in 2015, as part of Lufthansa's strategy to compete with LCCs in the European market and originally operated direct flights within Europe as well as some long haul destinations. Due to the pandemic in 2020, the group announced plans to realign Eurowings to a short haul and point-to-point carrier, transferring long haul operations to network operators under the airline group.

    Eurowings CEO, Jens Bischof recently stated that he believed the ultra low cost business model is on the decline in Germany. In this session we hear directly from Mr Bischof and hear how things look for the summer 2021 season.
