Recorded at CAPA Airline Leader Summit Americas 2024, 9-10 May 2024

Region Focus Trans-Pacific travel – will the delayed recovery happen in 2024?

Trans-Pacific flights have been among the slowest to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks to a messy combination of unclear rules and regulations, geopolitical tensions and substitution to other markets. Yet, airlines on both sides of the Pacific seem buoyant about the prospects in the market for 2024, with a flurry of capacity additions and new routes announced late in 2023. Traditional network carriers are eager to expand their somewhat limited operations, while LCCs are increasingly interested in the market.

  • What are the prospects for a return of travel to/from mainland China and Asia and Australasia for 2024?
  • What are the important new destinations in Asia and Australasia to look out for?
  • Who is set to benefit from the delayed recovery?
