Airports in South-East and East Asia 2016

Capital Investment Programmes

The countries covered in this report from Brooks Market Intelligence form a large part of the Asia-Pacific region, which retains its position as the world’s biggest aviation market, having earlier overtaken that in North America. Its share of world air traffic in 2014 stood at 33 percent by passenger journeys and 42 percent when measured by revenue passenger-km. Airport passenger traffic grew by 5.9 percent in 2014 to 2.48 billion, with cargo handled rising 5.7 percent to 46.3 million tonnes. There were positive indications of further growth in 2015. Relations between China and Taiwan continue to improve and a proposed single ‘open-sky’ aviation market in the ASEAN region together with increasing economic activity should further boost development of air traffic. In response, Civil aviation and airport authorities are making major investments aimed at enhancing their air transport infrastructure, generating significant opportunities for the sector’s suppliers.
