Adolescent Growing Pains and Transatlantic Renaissance

08 January 2018 / by John Grant

As part of our latest contribution to a new Market Outlook Report – Ishka Vista: 2018 Aviation Finance Market Forecast – OAG explores market-driven issues that could have an influence on the numbers and types of aircraft that will be in demand.

It can be difficult to keep up with everything that is happening in the aviation industry, the pace of change, aircraft orders and deliveries, new routes, alliances, legacy and low-cost expansion, long-haul low-cost are only a few of the daily challenges that we face. Bombarded by so much happening, it’s easy to lose sight of the detail and as we all know quite frequently the devil is in that detail. 

In the last year, nearly 1.4 million new scheduled flights have been added to the OAG database; that’s the equivalent of some 3,800 flights a day. In capacity terms, that’s around 299 million additional seats or 819,000 a day – equivalent to just over nine completely full Wembley Stadiums. There are 815 scheduled airlines, so keeping up to date on a market changing that quickly probably means you are not doing your day job!

We’ve picked two interesting areas and dug a bit deeper to see what really is happening,
highlighting some things that may not have been spotted and investigating issues that could
perhaps impact fleet deliveries and requirements. One is the state of the Chinese market and
the second, more surprisingly, is perceived as one of the most mature markets in the world –
North America to Europe.
