75 minutes

Join us for a comprehensive overview of the international and domestic air traffic and capacity patterns in China so far in 2020. Pressing questions to be addressed include: How did Chinese airlines deal with the shortfall in revenues and manage liquidity during the crisis? Is a high degree of state ownership and coordination by the Civil Aviation Administration of China a better way to deal with a crisis like COVID-19 than a free market system where airlines are more prone to fail and restructure? What are the implications of COVID-19 on Chinese leasing companies?
