The Door Opens to LCCs in China and North Asia
North Asia has lagged well behind Southeast Asia in its penetration by LCC. China in particular has not supported homegrown LCCs. This is now changing and each of the North Asian nations is now well represented by their own models. As the competition increases and policy changes stimulate new entry – including more cross-border joint ventures – so the scenario changes. Which airlines prosper will depend on their business models, the positions they are able to establish in their home markets and the nature of competition in their key routes. This panel of North Asian leaders looks at the factors at play and why their own airlines will survive and prosper.
