[앵커]As Hyundai Development develops into the Asiana Airlines acquisition process, overall restructuring in the aviation industry is expected.

In particular, Air Busan, a subsidiary of Asiana Airlines, is likely to be sold, and focused mergers and acquisitions are also taking place on low cost airlines.

[기자]Hyundai Industrial Development, which embraces Asiana Airlines, hopes to become a mobility group and has the second largest domestic airline after duty-free shops and resorts.

Thus, fierce competition with Korean Air, Korea's No. 1 airline, seems inevitable.

The question is whether to proceed to the acquisition process.

Kumho Industrial and its lenders are trying to sell their affiliates, including Asiana Airlines and its subsidiaries, Air Busan, Air Seoul and Asiana IDT.

When Hyundai Industrial Development acquires Asiana Airlines, Hyundai Industrial Development will be under the holding company HDC, and Asiana Airlines, followed by Air Busan, Air Seoul and Asiana IDT.

In this case, Asiana Airlines will become a subsidiary of HDC and, according to the Fair Trade Act, Asiana, a subsidiary of HDC, a holding company, must own 100% of its stake or sell shares within two years.

Asiana Airlines currently has a 44.2% stake in Air Busan.

The aviation industry is also expected to assume large-scale mergers and acquisitions due to unfavorable trading conditions, such as avoiding travel to Japan due to trade conflicts between Korea and Japan and the disruption of the Boeing 737NG aircraft fuselage.

In particular, three new low-cost airlines are scheduled to launch next year, and the domestic aviation market is entering a system of nine LCCs.
