Airlines in Asia have been slow to recover since the pandemic slammed the brakes on the fastest growth market for global aviation. In this episode, host Allan Marks speaks with Milbank Transportation and Space partner Paul Ng about the current state of Asia’s aviation market, recent restructurings and prospects for future growth in air traffic. They explore the shape of the recovery for airlines, passengers and air cargo, manufacturers and lessors of aircraft – and some reasons for optimism – despite uncertain demand, high fuel costs, tight labor markets and ongoing supply chain disruptions.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight.
