A barrier and an opportunity
Growth is an essential factor in the success of any aviation business. If an airport struggles to meet the expectations of airlines, it risks losing market share to larger, more efficient competitors.
So what are the opportunities and barriers that arise in pursuit of growth?
- The growth in routes is good for airlines and for airports. More people using an airport means more revenue from shops, parking and other retail opportunities.
- Even a small amount of growth can be well worth it. As aircraft sizes increase, finding just one extra slot in the day means there are more passengers with more money to spend – on top of the increased revenue from landing fees.
- Aviation businesses face an increasing number of restrictions on growth, such as physical situation, government policy and environmental issues, as well as the length and complexity of the consultation process.
Creating tailored solutions
The obvious thought might be to add more runways to handle more flights. Whilst we are experienced in helping Air Navigation Service Providers, airports and other aviation businesses expand their physical infrastructure, we may be able to find a better solution for you.
For instance, you might be better off working with us to increase efficiency by creating more movements through specialised training and innovative ATM technology.
Supporting international growth
We are close to completing a two-year airspace redesign and implementation consultancy project in Qatar. This project will support the operational transition to the new Hamad International airport and help triple the capacity of the existing airport, which is set to become the second largest aviation hub in the region.
We have also been working with the Sultanate of Oman’s Ministry of Transport since 2010 to deliver a fundamental airspace redesign which will increase capacity and efficiency in the region.
