CAPA's Airline Fleet and Finance Summit, 2/3 March 2015:
As LCCs across the intensely competitive short-haul Asian market rethink their business models in light of the Ultra-LCC model success in Europe and North America, questions are being asked as to how they can successfully differentiate their offerings to improve profitability. Unbundling the product offering is one strategy, while pursuit of a greater share of the corporate market or tapping regional markets are other responses. Meanwhile the low cost-long haul model will continue to evolve in 2015 and more connections within the region and particularly to the Middle East Europe are likely.
The common factor however is the large number of aircraft deliveries needing to be financed by these airlines, as well as traditional airlines in the region. But financiers are concerned about backing the airlines that will be the winners in an evolving marketplace.
CAPA’s upcoming Airline Fleet and Finance Summit in Singapore on 2/3 March 2015, with the theme, ‘Financing the successful airline business models of the future’, will seek to answer many of these questions.
Seen by many participants as the ‘most airline-centric air finance event on the calendar’, the CAPA Airline Fleet and Finance Summit will bring together Finance, Treasury and Fleet executives from some 60 airlines from across Asia and beyond, as well as participants from the region’s burgeoning finance sector.
The Summit will take place once again at the stunning Capella Sentosa Resort, Singapore.
