Asian LCCs’ struggle with overcapacity to increase demand for flexible MRO support

The Asia-Pacific region is currently experiencing by far the quickest growth in LCC. This is especially true in case of Southeast Asia, as the regional LCC fleet grew by about 19% in 2013 to 485 aircraft, becoming a source of overcapacity in the industry. Nevertheless, according to CAPA, Southeast Asia’s low-cost carrier fleet is still projected to increase by nearly 20% as major players plan to acquire 88 aircraft in 2014 despite a recent spate of delivery deferrals and suspensions of expansion. However, as optimizing fleet performance might imply unexpected changes in route networks, the carriers, requiring prompt and qualified support of their aircraft on the new directions will thus put additional pressure on the MRO providers.

Will China’s slowing aviation growth solve its personnel-related issues?

The most common aviation related topics discussed in the last several years include a growing number of aircraft sales orders, rapidly accelerating production and an increasingly complex backlog. Last year alone airlines welcomed 1.274 aircraft which is twice the volume of aircraft produced nine years ago. Such numbers have been especially fuelled by the developments in the Asia-Pacific, particularly China, followed by the industry-wide pilot and engineer deficiency. However, as lately the growth in different segments of the Chinese aviation industry has been slowing down, is it possible that the HR-related issues in the region will become less pressing than they have been so far?

High season in aviation: no grounds for long-term personnel investments

Today the air transport industry operates a network of around 40.000 routes and is expected to carry over 3.3 billion people and 50 million tonnes of cargo in 2014. Consolidations and joint ventures have enabled airlines to raise their efficiency even under difficult trading conditions. Although this is especially true in the case of low-cost carriers, their profitability still relies heavily on the performance during the high season, when the demand for air travel tends to rise dramatically. However, the summer season is also exerting more pressure on the MRO providers, who are expected to provide continuous support to their clients on all of new destinations, and thus have to deal with an increased demand for qualified technical personnel.

Supporting ambitious Russian carriers: a job for Western aircraft engineers

Recently, the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has announced about its decision to prolong the duty-free import of passenger aircraft into Russia until the 1st of January, 2017. The new rules, unlike their previous edition, also apply to such aircraft types as Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 in various modifications. As a result, the share of the Western-built aircraft in the expanding fleet of regional carriers (around 70 percent of which already consists of foreign-built airplanes), is expected to become even larger, naturally raising the demand for qualified and experienced pilots. However, the industry experts warn about an even more pressing area of concern in the region - the potential shortage of appropriately trained technical personnel.
