Chinese Aviation - How Restricted?

Wed Apr 11, 2007 7:00 am

How restricted is the Chinese aviation scene in terms of, for example, new entrants, prices, and where each airline can operate?

Really interesting question. Are you asking about foreign entrants to fly into China? Or domestic players? My view is you won't see the type of LCC expansion seen in India because of the desires of its current airlines, which are provided airplanes by the state, for the most part. They are quasi government entities, with the CEOs more or less "connected" individuals rather than, say, airline veterans. So it's a state-managed sector with only limited freedom of competition.

How about for GA?

sorry misunderstanding of reply 1...
re reply 2; Garuda? Garuda always had competitors in the domestic market although being friends with some hot shots helps or can ruin your airline (like Bouraq of Suharto's daughter which faded away since Suharto fell out of grace).

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
