BOC Aviation: Southeast Asia situation 'much more difficult' due to mixed vaccination rates

BOC Aviation MD and CEO Robert Martin, speaking at CAPA Live from Puerto Rico October 2021, stated (13-Oct-2021) the situation in Southeast Asia is "much more difficult" as the region has a mixture of "very low vaccination rates and high vaccination rates", adding: "So there's going to be a reluctance to open those economies quickly to external travellers". Mr Martin said: "When we look at Asia, unfortunately it's going to be slow and it's going to be pockets of intra-Asian growth, rather the total trans-Asian growth".
