C-LEVEL KEYNOTE INTERVIEWS

Asian aviation is changing: with more passengers flying than ever, a growing number of LCCs taking over not only regional markets but also long-haul flights, and new technology radically changing passengers’ expectations from their flying experience, airlines need to adapt – and quickly. With increasing pressures on yields, a high operating cost environment and more competition for passengers than ever before, the winners will be the ones who innovate. This session will bring together leaders from a combination of FSCs and LCCs to discuss their views on innovation, technology and changing business strategies, first through a series of 10 minute interviews and then in a lively panel discussion.
Interviewee: Zhijie Wang, Chief Executive Officer, Spring Airlines
