Summit Themes

Expected to be the single largest market by 2020, the Summit focuses on three key themes over the course of a high-powered summit at which leading industry figures from China and Europe will discuss their visions for the future development of the market.

Air Service Development
With new services realised through participation at last year’s event and more scheduled services to be announced by Chinese carriers during the course of 2018 the summit will look at what markets will be the next to secure service. Key themes that will be discussed include: -

            Potential changes to air service agreements in the next three years.

            The potential for secondary city development in China.

            The partnership approach to route development as seen from a Chinese Airline.

Ancillary Revenue & Loyalty Programmes
Amongst some of the highest spenders when travelling overseas how can airports and airlines maximise ancillary revenues. Amongst areas that will be explored are: -

            The power of e-commerce and social media channels in ancillary revenue generation.

            The power of the electronic wallet amongst Chinese travellers and how to gain share.

            How loyalty programmes can be used to generate revenue amongst travellers.

On-Time Performance and Operational Efficiency in China
Rapid market growth and capacity constraints have placed pressure on capacity leading to some challenges with on-time performance. This session will explore the subject in great detail, covering such areas as: -

            Fact or fiction, what are the key facts around OTP in the region.

            How airlines are addressing this issue with key insights from locally based Airlines.

            New technology solutions and their adoption at Chinese Airports.
