This year’s Aviation Event again brought together executives from the aviation, politics and business sectors as well as 200 interested members of the industry at the HOLM (House of Logistics and Mobility) at Frankfurt Airport to discuss future issues. The ninth event of the Aviation Event series was under the motto “take-off or touchdown: what is the magic formula for success in the aviation industry?”.
In any case, it means: “Now set the right course”. The increasing role of drones and future innovations in the freight business were just as much a topic as the privatization and the expansion of the infrastructure of airports with an outlook on improved competitiveness.

Aeronautics is a growth market worldwide. In order to ensure that Europe’s aviation sites remain

The vision is a central air traffic control system that controls it. Its realization, however, still seems quite remote. Continue reading “Eagerly awaited: The Aviation Event 2017 in Frankfurt” »

Carsten Spohr and James Hogan are unfazed by the growing protectionist mood since Trump´s election. The chief executives of the airline groups Lufthansa and Etihad on February 1st  shrugged off concerns that their industry could suffer from a protectionist backlash against free trade. Both said that aviation deals make globalization possible for other industries.

At an Abu Dhabi press conference to announce a tie-up in catering and potentially other areas of operation, Carsten Spohr, the chief executive of the German carrier, said that the aviation industry “are the good guys of globalisation. We make globalisation feasible for billions of people around the world”.

“We play a very important part in making globalisation positive for as many people as possible beyond aviation itself,” he said.

Etihad’s James Hogan said: “We continue to have dialogues with the GCAA, who in turn have their dialogue with the EU. There are challenges, there’s points of view. What is more important is how does partnership deliver. It’s about connectivity, it’s about jobs and economic contribution. It shouldn’t be about politics.” Continue reading ““The good guys of globalisation”” »

Low-cost airline Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA will begin operating flights in Argentina beginning in late 2017, a spokesman said Dec. 16th , as more air travel operators seek a foothold in Latin America’s No. 3 economy.

The company plans to open two or three operating bases and begin passenger flights by November. It already has begun the relevant regulatory processes. Spokesman Alfons Claver did not say which routes the airline plans to run but expects to have bases in Buenos Aires, Cordoba and possibly Mendoza. “South America is a very interesting market characterized by little competition and high prices,” Claver said in a statement. He said

Ryanair: overall expansion plans

Der Geschaeftsfuehrer der irischen Billigfluggesellschaft Ryanair, Michael O'Leary, posiert am Mittwoch (09.05.12) auf dem Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn in Lautzenhausen auf einer Pressekonferenz der Fluggesellschaft mit einem Flugzeugmodell. Die Billigfluglinie Ryanair kritisiert die EU-Beihilfeverfahren gegen regionale Flughaefen in Deutschland als "Feldzug". Der Vorwurf illegaler oeffentlicher Finanzhilfen fuer die Airport-Betreiber, von denen Ryanair profitiere, sei falsch, sagte Ryanair-Chef Michael O'Leary am Mittwoch in Lautzenhausen.

The Ryanair Holdings PLC on November 7th lifted its outlook for long-term passenger growth and nonticket sales. Ryanair said it now expects to carry 200 million passengers a year by March 2024, or 20 million more than previously projected.

The airline expects to gain customers through expansion and retrenchment of other airlines in the face of stiff competition. Sales for the July-to-September period, traditionally the busiest for the airline, advanced 2% to €2.4 billion.  The Irish carrier said its board had approved a €550 million share-repurchase program, the airline’s eighth, to be carried out through February 2017.
