In this edition we take a look at consolidation among both airlines and handlers, as mergers and acquisitions continue to shape the aviation industry. Meanwhile, carriers are thinking creatively, using partnerships to build better networks and expand their reach into new markets around the world.
We hear comments on the subject of ground damage – and who pays for it. This theme is picked up again as AGS examines developments relating to IATA’s Ground Operations Manual – and looks ahead to the imminent 28th IGHC.
We consider how IT-based services benefit numerous sectors of the aviation world, as well as examining the role of IT and logistics in airline catering. We also take an overview of developments in the Asia Pacific handling market, and we hear from TCR, which recently expanded its presence in Scandinavia.
