Airline Solutions

AviaSolutions offers a suite of consulting services, techniques and tools tailored towards the changing demands of the airline business. Our highly qualified team address challenges throughout the airline’s value chain – from business model selection to traffic analysis, network development, fleet selection and acquisition analysis.

Our goal is to deliver practical, appropriate and innovative solutions to your airline challenge. This starts with selecting a business model and market positioning strategy that will engender shareholder returns and growth.

The aviation industry attracts some of the most talented leadership teams in the world. For those people running the world’s airlines, the challenges faced get more complex every day:

  • delivering sufficient shareholder returns in an environment of high fuel prices and flat economic growth
  • managing legacy airlines when new competitors engage with lower cost structures
  • managing the slowing penetration rate in developed markets of the once all-conquering low cost carrier business model
  • an airline alliance and partnership landscape that is ever evolving, with long-term consequences on traffic flows
  • the constant growth of Middle East and Asian sixth-freedom hub carriers, with long-term consequences on traffic flows
  • providing the infrastructure in emerging markets in order to convert the undoubted opportunity into profitable growth
  • handling fleet strategy when new aircraft types promise new efficiencies but have been delayed by development challenges
  • raising finance that can enable more efficient and capable fleets at competitive pricing
  • brand propositions that often need to re-engage with their customers
  • environmental concerns that are adding cost structure for minimal added value to date
