  • Trend long-haul low-cost airlines – also a success model in Russia?

    As in previous year, Lufthansa Consulting recently took part in the annual Aircraft Finance and Lease Russia & CIS 2018 conference in Moscow. Askhat Torshin, the company’s Permanent Representative in Russia, attended the largest event for aviation finance topics in the Russian and CIS market and contributed the speech “Long-haul LCCs: what has changed from Laker Airways times?”.

    Long-haul low-cost carriers are not a new occurrence, the trend has been growing over the last years, with newcomers and major airlines establishing their own subsidiaries in the Asian, European, American and Australian market. There is no long-haul LCC in the Russian market yet. Isn’t this the right time to introduce a Russian long-haul low-cost airline? What ideal characteristics should be taken into consideration for a successful strategy? The Lufthansa Consulting expert takes a deeper look into these questions by analyzing the development of long-haul LCCs based on the beginnings of Laker Airways, the pioneer of this business model.
