EUROPEAN AVIATION LANDSCAPE

In the European aviation sector, there is no middle ground anymore. On scheduled flights, travellers have to choose between service and price. There is no longer room for holiday carriers and regional airlines, after tremendous consolidation that occurred in the last two years. Holiday carriers like Air Berlin, Monarch Airlines, Primera Air and Germania disappeared. In addition, several regional airlines ceased to exist and Flybe, the largest regional airline in Europe, was forcefully sold to a consortium of buyers led by Virgin Atlantic.
