3 Jun 2022 • 42m23s

As we enter the 6th month of 2022, South East Asia’s travel industry is showing signs of revival, with the aviation sector at the heart. But, rebuilding airline supply and passenger demand after the pandemic is accompanied by various operational challenges. South East Asia is playing catch-up due to the long pandemic travel restrictions, so what is the current state of play for airlines, airports and aviation?

This week, Gary and Hannah welcome aviation analyst Shukor Yusof, Founder and CEO of Malaysia & Singapore-based Endau Analytics. Shukor discusses a broad range of issues, from jet fuel costs to FOREX risks, ticket pricing to start-up carriers and airport resourcing to consumer sentiment.

We also assess the future role of China and India in South East Asia’s air market, and the key lessons for LCCs and flag carriers from the past two-and-a-half years.
