Here’s a sample of Endau Analytics making the news in the local, regional and international news media.

SIA could deliver more positive surprises

The airline already has the lowest revenue yield among the major carriers – down some 12 per cent in the past three years, pointed out Shukor Yusof, founder of Endau Analytics, in a report. He flagged other potential threats to margins going forward, such as a sharp spike in oil prices, further depreciation of the Singapore dollar vis-a-vis the greenback, not to mention terrorism and pandemics.

Organisers confident of Singapore Airshow…

The 2014 Singapore Airshow was remembered as one that soared to new heights with a record US$32 billion in sales. However, the question remains whether the turbulent global economy will impact the Airshow’s performance this year.

“I think it will be a rather muted performance compared to two years ago for several reasons,” said Endau Analytics founder Shukor Yusof. “One, economically it’s not as buoyant as it was two years ago. The dynamics have changed as they constantly do in the aviation industry.

“There are many airshows in the region that take place annually. They had one in Dubai at the end of November last year, which all the major manufacturers and aerospace companies attended.”

Malaysia Air Lifts Ban on Baggage…

“The reasoning has made them look odd, it’s pure stupidity,” said Shukor Yusof, founder of Endau Analytics, an aviation consultancy firm in Malaysia. “It’s ludicrous. Malaysia Airlines have been flying to Europe for decades. Over the last 30-40 years was there no bad weather?”

Will airlines pass some of these profits to consumers by lowering fares?

Not likely.

Aviation consultant Shukor Yusof of Malaysia-based Endau Analytics said there’s no incentive “for airlines to reduce fares because of low oil prices because they’re doing well and the demand is there.”

A day after the FAA’s downgrade, Thai Airways President Charamporn Jotikasthira said the company would be more severely affected by similar action in Europe. Its 11 routes to the continent provide a third of the carrier’s revenue, he said.
The European Commission last updated its safety list June 25. Indonesia and Nepal were the only Asian countries banned, though four Indonesian carriers were exempted, including flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia.
“Thai Air is in a better situation than airlines in Indonesia,” said Shukor Yusof, founder of Endau Analytics, an aviation consultancy in Malaysia. “They have a better safety record, so it’s unlikely they’ll be blacklisted.”

AirAsia said it has made safety changes since that crash, but industry experts said the investigators’ report posed a challenge for the budget carrier. “The report casts doubts and concerns over how AirAsia maintains its aircraft and how it prepares its pilots to respond to certain conditions that would affect the stability of the aircraft once it’s airborne,” said Shukor Yusof, aviation analyst at market-research firm Endau Analytics.

Even if it sorts itself out, AirAsia may never manage to grab more than a smallish slice of the Indonesian market, by far the region’s largest, reckons Shukor Yusof of Endau Analytics, a consulting firm. That would be a bitter blow to its ambitions. It might also mean that LionAir—which has plans to increase its fleet by two-thirds before 2018—overtakes it as the region’s biggest carrier.
