OAG presents its considerations for future international strategies in its new analysis report ‘The Fight for Global Markets – Is Three the Magic Number?’, to be launched at CAPA’s Americas Aviation Summit in Las Vegas (27-28 April 2015) by OAG’s EVP Data and Market Intelligence, John Grant. John Grant says: “Alliances are no longer the only means of international competition. Increasingly joint ventures, equity stakes and less formal partnerships are being used, all of which challenge existing structures and operations. There are currently more airlines than can realistically exist and in a truly global market where barriers were eased, we would expect to see a consolidation of carriers. “The global aviation outlook is transforming and there have to be changes to the business structure, the key players and shape of the industry. Alliances are not a long-term solution – they are a fixed solution which have run their course for many circumstances.” Get the full story at OAG
