Competition and change in the long-haul markets of Europe

By Nigel Dennis


Long-haul operations remain crucial to the viability of many of the traditional European 'flag\ud carriers'. An analysis is made of the current services and it is shown that alliances and the recent\ud round of airline failures have led to greater concentration on the major hubs. Aircraft and product\ud developments are discussed. More non-stop destinations and higher frequencies are expected\ud from the major European hubs to other world regions, coupled with increased non-European\ud carrier service to second-tier cities in Europe. The scope for a long-haul low-cost airline is\ud analysed and traditional operations are shown to be in a relatively stronger position
