Recorded at CAPA LCC Airports Congress - Asia, 3rd week of Sep 2015
HK Express CEO Update
HK Express CEO Andrew Cowen discusses the challenges of securing slots at its home base of Hong Kong International Airport. Its all-A320 fleet will be supplemented by A321s, enabling capacity growth where slot growth is not necessarily permissible. The carrier's cutover to Navitaire is improving commercial opportunities, although the usually strong summer season in Hong Kong had a setback with Korea's MERS outbreak stunting travel demand.
