“The global aviation market has fully recovered with ASPAC still lagging behind. Depending on global macroeconomics and the full recovery of the Chinese outbound market, the full recovery should occur end of 2024 or early 2025. With rising aircraft orders placed in the region, increasing disposable incomes, and a hunger for travel, Asia Pacific is poised to lead the industry in the next decade,” says Mayur Patel, head of the Asia Pacific region at OAG.

The statement adds that among the Most Recovered Regional Network airports that have recovered the most in the region in 2023 as against 2019, Delhi airport bagged Silver recognition.

It says that Hong Kong International Airport was awarded as Fastest Growing airport, with the highest growth rate in airline capacity change from Q4 2023 vs Q4 2022. In terms of most recovered international route, the Busan-Taipei gained recognition as the Most Recovered International route.
