Challenges Facing The Aviation Industry

Airlines are currently operating under extreme economic pressure, brought on by the challenges of reduced passenger numbers following the global recession and the need to comply with carbon footprint targets. This has led to a number of key challenges.


Financial pressure

Rising infrastructure costs, volatile oil prices, green taxes and the economic downturn have left many airlines struggling to stay afloat.  For some there is a limit to how much of this additional financial burden they can absorb and the pressure is on to perform more efficiently and cost effectively, whilst still maintaining a quality and reliable service.

Falling premium traffic

The global recession has meant less business and first class passengers, adding to the economic pressure felt by airlines.  As businesses worldwide struggle to cut costs, there has been a trend for increasing reliance on teleconferencing instead of premium travel.

Customer focus

Offering customers a quality and reliable service, whilst still maintaining a competitive price is a difficult task to achieve.  Each airline needs to find its place within the market and create new ways to enhance their customers’ travel experience.

Safety and security

These are ongoing concerns which place a huge financial burden on the airline industry every year.

Sustainable aviation

At the forefront of any airline’s responsibility is the need to reduce their carbon footprint and maximise fuel efficiency, for instance with the introduction of carbon neutral biofuels.
