The aviation industry. Is it entering a period of consolidation? So my cat amongst the pigeons question for you all today is whether aviation is about to enter a period of consolidation or not?

It was always claimed that the airport was never needed in the first place and as such TUI and Wizz have now consolidated in to other airports, where fortunately LBA has gained. Flybe seem to be lurching from one crisis to another having...

Manchester Airport Group Statement - international travel system The simplification of the UK’s international travel system, including doing away with pre-departure tests and switching to lateral flow on arrival, will make it easier and cheaper for people to travel abroad. For too long, the recovery of UK aviation has lagged behind the rest of Europe. The changes announced today will help to close that gap by encouraging more people to book foreign travel. But for as long as vaccinated travellers have to pay for tests, the recovery of one of the UK’s major industries will be held back...

UK Government Indecisiveness sends Travel Industry into disarray What is absolutely clear is the UK Government has been completely indecisive when it comes to foreign travel. Foreign holidays are on, then they're off, you can book holidays, then you can't. Travel will be permitted from the 17th of May, but then, the government is not going to tell you how this can happen. The 'traffic light' idea was released in the usual way, through a Downing Street 'leak' the day before a Downing Street conference hosted by Boris Johnson.. The scheme, largely accepted by the travel industry was a...

We are working with the Government to try to ensure this complex scheme is workable. Fewer long-haul passenger flights meant that cargo volume was down 21% in January – a key indicator of...
