10 airlines in Asia account for over 50% of the region's orders: DVB
DVB MD Vicente Alava Pons, speaking at CAPA's Financing the Asian Aviation Revolution conference, stated (07-Sep-2012) over 50% of aircraft to be delivered to Asian airlines in 2012 and 2013 will be placed with just 10 airlines. China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines and Air China are projected to take 60 or more aircraft each. The other seven carriers in the top 10 include AirAsia, Malaysia Airlines, Shenzhen Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Lion Air, Jet Airways, and Garuda Indonesia. "Most of these names of course are quite good but some airlines might be under pressure," Mr Alava Pons said.
