The Environment for Southeast Asia's New and Evolving Airlines

This paper examines the situation in the initial stage of the competitive battle emerging in Southeast Asia with a wave of new low cost airlines . The competition will be shaped by environmental and industry factors, as some of the world's most successful international operators are already entrenched in precisely the type of routes that attract low cost airlines. Incumbents are establishing their own low-cost subsidiaries and some of the busiest city-pair markets are open to a considerable amount of competition. The paper's environmental analysis examines travel markets, conditions of access to markets, the potential for airlines to reduce costs, and policies that set competitive rules.
