AAPA: “Asia Pacific carriers have managed their way successfully through the downturn, and are on track to report significantly improved financial results for the full-year 2010. The outlook for 2011 also remains broadly positive, given expectations of sustained demand growth. Nevertheless, carriers need to remain vigilant, and will be carefully monitoring the progress of economic recovery in the major developed markets, as well as the threat of higher oil prices, amongst other challenges, including unwelcome increases in government taxes and charges which undermine the important role played by aviation in promoting positive economic growth and social development,” Andrew Herdman, AAPA Director General.
