An annual increase of 5.9 percent in scheduled low-cost flights to Asia from within Asia is forecast for 2018, despite a 26.5% drop of traffic from Central Asia. Flights from Southeast Asia will still dominate with a 44.1% share of total low-cost flights, on the back of an expected nine percent year-on-year growth compared to 2017. Northeast Asia (4.7%) and South Asia (9.9%) are also expected to contribute toward growth this year while flights from West Asia (-2.3%) are predicted to decrease slightly.
