Providing value to the aviation sector

Connectivity lies at the heart of the value provided by the aviation sector to the broader economy, and is a measure of the health of an airport, a city, and a region. As we emerge from the longest sustained recession in 80 years, the indicators are that the aviation market has turned a corner, with demand intensifying and airline profitability returning. Of course, the aviation market has always been cyclical - a long-term growth trend punctuated by demand shocks that rein in investment and impact traffic. Many investors are concerned that current asset prices are nearing their previous peak and may be susceptible to correction if economic circumstances change. However, if fuel prices remain comparatively low and if the tide of demographic change in emerging markets continues, the long-term prognosis for airport assets is strong. This is especially true given the scarcity of assets available when compared to the demand from various investor categories.
