The panel explored air cargo demand, geopolitical influences on APAC air cargo networks, oversupply of converted narrowbodies, and the outlook for medium widebody conversions. 

Asian freighter MRO demand is expected to comprise 14% of global air cargo MRO needs, with anticipated growth surpassing that of many other regions throughout the next decade. Despite the ongoing market recovery, opportunities in Vietnam, China, and potential markets in the Middle East and Africa — where remote locations offer better yields — remain optimistic. Also, the environmental footprint of integrating new freighters instead of legacy fleets was discussed.
