Lufthansa Consulting takes part in Aviation Outlook Africa 2014

Lufthansa Consulting is contributing to the Aviation Outlook Africa 2014 conference and exhibition in Johannesburg, South Africa. The company’s Associate Partner responsible for Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean region Catrin Drawer will hold a speech about “How revenue enhancement and cost efficiency can help accelerate airlines’ fleet development” in the Revenue & Distribution session of the VIP conference on 2 July 2014.

The participation in Africa’s largest transportation and infrastructure event underscores the company’s continuing engagement in the region. Within the framework of its worldwide activities in the air transport industry, Lufthansa Consulting has been present in Africa for more than twenty-five years with numerous successful projects for airlines, airports as well as for governments and aviation authorities. The management consultancy is also sponsoring this event.

The Aviation Outlook forum focuses on the latest developments in commercial aviation in Africa. While major African airlines are trying to provide direct connectivity between African destinations, international airlines are also trying to open new routes into Africa, thus increasing competition within the sector.

Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean, in particular, are exciting and dynamic areas, which are currently experiencing strong economic growth and increased tourism. This leads to a demand for intermodal transport infrastructure solutions to serve the markets and satisfy international investor requirements. Passengers and goods need safe and reliable transport. Establishing a comprehensive civil aviation administration framework is crucial to ensure safe and secure operations, and open sky policies. Lufthansa Consulting is experienced in the intricacies of the strategic development and capacity building of airports and airlines in expanding markets.

All these developments show that there is an increasing demand for aviation solutions and a necessity for detailed planning and appropriate optimization. Lufthansa Consulting supports the effective, fast and transparent development of such projects.
