At the 2022 Airline Economics New York conference, Alton?s Managing Director John Mowry kicked off the multi-day event with an initial review of the commercial aviation finance industry. Aircraft trading, equity markets, and debt financing dynamics were explored.
In the fourth of its series of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) white papers, Alton turns the spotlight on AAM ground infrastructure. In the report, Alton?s experts identify what MRO will look like for AAM vehicles, the anticipated role of the OEMs with respect to MRO, and likely key players.
Alton?s white paper turns the spotlight on hydrogen aircraft and the significant implications for aviation infrastructure. In the report, Alton?s experts explore the following questions: What are the impacts of future energy source adoption? How will hydrogen aircraft operations affect infrastructure? What should stakeholders consider in the path to hydrogen technology?
In a special white paper authored for the Airfinance Journal?s 2022-2023 Annual, Alton Aviation Consultancy looks at the state of commercial aviation and aircraft leasing, and the outlook for the year ahead. The aviation industry has cautiously turned a corner from the Covid-19 pandemic, with traffic rebounding as the world has largely opened. However, as of the third quarter 2022, new challenges have emerged that throw the industry?s path forward into uncertainty.
Alton Aviation Consultancy Managing Director Jonathan Berger was invited to speak at IATA?s 18th Annual Maintenance Cost Conference (MCC) in Geneva, Switzerland where he presented Alton?s proprietary 10-year global fleet & MRO forecast and shared his insights on the key aviation and MRO industry trends.
Alton Aviation Consultancy Managing Director Jonathan Berger was invited to provide the opening keynote presentation at Aviation Week?s annual MRO Latin America conference where he shared his insights on the major aviation and MRO industry trends and their impact to the Latin American regional competitive dynamics.
Air hubs have traditionally been a key component of regional and intercontinental air travel due to the success of hub-and-spoke airline models. Such models aim to consolidate demand, maximize flight offerings, and thus more seamlessly connect city pairs between which direct flights may not be technically or commercially viable. Connecting traffic was particularly devastated by COVID-19 as border restrictions greatly reduced international travel demand, and COVID-19 protocols drove more point-to-point travel and precluded air hubs from serving foreign connecting traffic. Most airlines drastically reduced service levels globally, thereby reducing the number of possible itineraries to the average traveler. This paper discusses the importance of air hubs in the past and… Continue reading Future of Air Hubs: Staying Relevant in a Changing World
At Aviation Week?s Engine Leasing, Trading & Finance Americas (ELTF) conference, Alton Aviation Consultancy Managing Director John Mowry provided an assessment of the aviation industry and macroeconomic environment.
In the third of its series of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) white papers, Alton turns the spotlight on AAM ground infrastructure. In the report, Alton’s experts identify some of the similarities and differences in ground infrastructure required to support conventional aircraft and eVTOLs, examine the role vertiports play in cities of tomorrow, and explore how airports can define their future strategy to remain relevant for this form of future mobility.
In the second of a series of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) white papers, Alton focuses the spotlight on the aircraft finance industry. In commercial aviation, aircraft lessors own approximately 50% of all aircraft; yet we have not heretofore seen a similar level of interest in the AAM space. This white paper will explore some of the factors that drive aircraft financing activities in commercial aviation, and also provide some considerations for manufacturers, lessors and lessees.
