Air Transportation and TravelThe air transport industry has undergone significant changes within recent years, including but not limited to deregulation, drops in price asymmetries (due to internet booking), increased mobility, an increase in the number of destinations and customers. The advent of online booking and ‘no-frills’ airlines have dramatically altered the needs and desires of a large part of the air transport market. The airline industry is one of the few industries to not benefit from significant economies of scale, thus firms in this sector have to be especially careful about expansion, making sure to control their costs, as well as maintain their quality of service. By developing and enforcing efficient management techniques in maintenance, ground operations and other aspects of flight control will likely lead to substantial productivity increases. One possibility is a significant reduction in the time needed to prepare an airline for takeoff. Airlines that utilize a ‘hub-and-spoke’ system are able to coordinate and alter flight plans quickly, thus increasing the number of flights that an airline can make, as well as making the airline more reliable.
As the number of international airline ventures and partnerships grow, so does the need to update ICT networks and adapt the mix of aircraft to modern consumer tastes and desires.
