The airline consolidation in Europe and how airports can respond to this development will be the focus topic of Lufthansa Consulting’s delegation at the upcoming World Route Development Forum in Barcelona, Spain, from 23 – 26 September 2017.
The company's Associate Partner Dr. Andreas Kraus and his team of consultants welcome visitors to their exhibition stand PS7.306 and look forward to discussing their targeted approaches and competitive solutions with representatives of the aviation industry.
Airline consolidation has a strong impact on airports. Whereas short-term service interruptions harm the customer experience and an airport’s reputation, long-term effects are more severe: smaller gateways, in particular, risk losing prominent long-range services or even their hub status once a home carrier’s business model comes under pressure. At World Routes, we will discuss how airports can best react to the challenges of airline consolidation. Further key topics will include how to deal with fading air supply, how to support the establishment of replacement links in the short term and how to proactively extend business activities to new owners and new customer groups. The current turbulent times are demanding for top airport managers, as airports need to play a more active role in safeguarding their market position. This means having solid ‘what-if’ scenarios and mitigation strategies in place to anticipate changes in the airline provider portfolio.
During the event the management consultants will provide an overview of their full range of competencies, products and services. They will share their proven expertise, which is particularly focused on airline and airport topics but also on issues in the fields of logistics, infrastructure and in industry-related areas.
