6 April 2021: 45-minute Regional Forecast Presentation

3PM SGT | 8AM BST | 3AM EDT

Latest COVID-related traffic forecast for the region and associated MRO demand. What trends can we see in Southeast Asia? What are the implications of reduced orders for the number of aircraft operating in the region for years to come, and for the resulting demand for support services? With many airlines burning off their greentime engines, will we see a wave of shop visits when this comes to an end? At what rate do we expect the SEA region return to rapid growth and what are the expectations for maintenance and re-activation or part-out of parked fleets? How do we plan for the regional fleets to grow and age into a more maintenance-intensive phase?
