The October issue of Low Cost & Regional Airline Business is now online

Posted on 7 September 2017


The October issue of Low Cost & Regional Airline Business is now online

In our Autumn issue, we talk to leading budget airline Ryanair about how the company is leaving behind its ‘bad boy’ image, its plans to deal with the impending challenge of Brexit, and what the future may bring for Europe’s largest carrier.

Meanwhile, newcomer LEVEL is looking to shake up the long-haul low cost market. Introducing budget flights from Barcelona to destinations in the Americas, including Los Angeles, Oakland, Buenos Aires and Punta Cana, could LEVEL be set to take the crown from reigning airline Norwegian?

And with more people flying than ever before, new pilots will be needed to sustain the commercial air transport industry’s growth. We look at how training simulators can be used to lower training costs and improve the recruitment process.


Other articles in this issue include:

Bring it ON:
Delivering wifi to passengers travelling through European airspace has always been more difficult than for flights over the United States, with aircraft all too easily mired in trans-border bureaucracy. A new initiative by the EAN however, promises to solve this thorny issue


Flying private:
As German airline Hahn Air leaves the regional air market behind, we explore the variety of new services on offer, including distribution and ticketing services for travel agents and transportation companies, and even a private jet service between Düsseldorf and Luxembourg
