European bizav activity calms, but not for all

30 Oct 2017

It is a trend we know all too well: the European business aviation market booms in summer, and wanes late in the year. This year is no different. Departures from Europe have been falling since August, and we expect this trend to continue. Most will experience a decline in requested trips to and from Europe, but not all.

It is a trend we know all too well: the European business aviation market booms in summer, and wanes late in the year. This year is no different. Departures from Europe have been falling since August, and we expect this trend to continue. Most will experience a decline in requested trips to and from Europe, but not all. 

Based on last year’s requests between Q3 and Q4, some locations in the EMEAA will have a nice bump in the remainder of 2017, if the pattern repeats. Last year, requests in Q4 increased nearly 1000% from the quarter prior for arrivals to Chambéry (LFLB). Similarly, requests arriving at Malé (VRMM), Dubai (OMDW and OMDB), Marrakech (GMMX), Valencia (LEVC), Innsbruck (LOWI), Sevilla (LEZL) and Samedan (LSZS) grew between 60-400% late in 2016. 

Why are these cities seeing an increase when the rest of Europe slows? The move is clear, escape to warmer climates of Maldives, Dubai, Morocco and Spain, or opt for a snowy holiday in France or Switzerland. Reposition yourself for the holiday, and ride the last wave of 2017 business in EMEAA.

While you might not have met Andreas Rosander in person, most of our customers and partners have been in contact with him in one way or another, and it’s fair to say we couldn’t run our business without him. That’s because, as the accounting assistant at Avinode, Andreas is the guy who pays the bills and makes sure that we get paid by our customers. Here he talks about the different tasks that make up his day, he explains how he would describe Avinode to a stranger and tells us why he’s always up for a haunted adventure.

What demand to expect for the festive season?

2021 has been another year of mixed fortunes for private charter. From the dark days of empty aircraft and very low hourly rates, we raced into record movements and a constrained supply environment leading to challenges sourcing aircraft. Relaxed travel restrictions meant that November saw impressive growth versus 2019 on both sides of the Atlantic, but as we step into Christmas, omicron worries bring fresh concerns. What does Avinode marketplace data indicate for the festive period?
