Event Summary

The aviation industry in Southeast Asia, like elsewhere in the world, has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. There has been a sharp decline in the number of air passengers both domestically and internationally, and a corresponding slump in the management of airlines, which has led to some business failures and other moves. On the other hand, the economic growth of the region and the increase of tourism exchange will remain unchanged in the medium to long term, and there are some efforts by the public and private sectors to solve these issues continuously. But there is not so much well-organized information on them.  For this reason, this colloquium will provide an overview of recent trends in aviation in Southeast Asia, including the recent impact of COVID-19, medium- and long-term topics such as airport development, MRO (Aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Over-haul), and aviation human resource development, as well as the ASEAN’s Single Aviation Market and Air Transport Agreement. In addition, we will examine the issues of aviation in Southeast Asia, with a mainly focus on Thailand, and provide implications for Japan.
