  • Market analysis for small and mid-size commercial turboprop aircraft
    • Authors: Vitaly S. Guzhva, Tamilla Curtis, Vladislav Borodulin
      Pages: 121 - 143
      Abstract: Recent fuel price volatility and growing concerns about the efficiency of regional jets have led to a revival of large turboprop aircraft as efficient passenger carriers on short-haul regional routes. Since most small and mid-size turboprop manufacturers have gone bankrupt or discontinued production due to some other reasons, current operators of this aircraft class are left with aging fleets. This paper assesses the feasibility of developing a new generation small turboprop aircraft for regional and commuter airline markets through a survey of industry participants. A mail-in questionnaire asked the respondents to evaluate the potential market and their companies' needs for new small turboprops. In addition, the respondents outlined desired characteristics and design features for a new generation small turboprop. The results indicate that a market for 20-50 seat turboprops exists, and current operators are looking for performance and design characteristics that their aging fleets cannot provide.

  • Air traffic growth, energy, and the environment 2040: drivers,
           challenges, and opportunities for aviation
    • Pages: 144 - 166
      Abstract: Although many forecasts predict a stable development of commercial aviation within the upcoming decade, its further development remains uncertain. Aviation stakeholders usually develop strategies on a short-term basis, while public institutions have set ambitious long-term goals for the industry. This paper shows how scenario planning can aid in handling uncertainty in long-term strategy development. Three decisive factors are explored: the increasing scarcity of resources, the change of global climate, and the growing demand for mobility. The paper exposes the results of a recent foresight project led by the authors. Three future scenarios are examined featuring top-level statements that address the global political and economic situation, and in-detail views on the aviation sector in 2040. The intentional difference between the three scenarios eventually enables the development of robust strategies for aviation stakeholders.

  • Scenario-based life-cycle cost assessment of future air transport
    • Pages: 167 - 182
      Abstract: The aviation industry stakeholders operate in a volatile environment. Because of the long life-cycles of aircraft, the consideration of future developments is vital for the life-cycle cost (LCC) assessment of aircraft concepts during the conceptual design phase. Using current LCC models, a multiplicity of assumptions about the future development manipulates the results to a varying degree. Hence, a link between scenarios, as an established method for describing possible future developments, and LCC models is necessary to determine the scenario-driven LCC parameters. In order to establish this link, the relations between the key scenario factors and scenario-driven LCC parameters were mapped out and regression equations based on historical values describe the dependencies. The resulting model allows the evaluation of aircraft concepts for a variety of future scenarios and with identifying cost drivers for different future environments, it is now possible to provide more accurate predictions about the future cost of flying.

  • Managing the risky matter of business model innovation in the context of
           the airline industry
    • Authors: Evangelia Siachou, Triant Flouris
      Pages: 183 - 194
      Abstract: Global players habitually put forward resources aiming at worldwide exchanges (e.g., advances in technology, telecommunications and transportation) to commercialise products, services, processes or business models. Looking at dynamic business environments, we often observe that the development of innovative business models, alone, does not always promise improvements in overall productivity and operational efficiency. Organisations strive to create economic value for all interested parties through the inherent value of an innovative concept, which can be commercialised. Such concepts are often linked to sales revenues and company profitability and may also secure organisational access to new business niches. However, the launching of a business model could be a risky matter for corporations. To address this issue we propose a conceptual framework that views threats related to imitation from competitors, and the short life cycle of products, services or processes, as variables of the best risk function of business model innovation using the airline industry as the context of the study.
      Keywords: airlines; risk management; knowledge management; business model innovation; aviation management; airline industry; competitor imitation; product life cycle; service life cycle; process life cycle

  • Key factors contributing to operating cost of short-haul domestic air
    • Pages: 195 - 207
      Abstract: Some domestic air routes are essential for residents living areas where surface transport is hard to reach. To ensure the sustainability of the air service, governments usually regulate the air fares and provide subsidies for local residents and carriers. Since price regulation and subsidy calculation are mostly cost-based and route-based, to identify the key factors contributing to operating cost of air routes is imperial. This study collects monthly panel data of domestic air routes in Taiwan during a six-year period of 2006-2012, to empirically investigate the key factors for operating cost. According to the estimated elasticity, stage length and aircraft type are two most key factors contributing to total cost while aircraft age has the largest effect on both direct cost and average cost. Based on the estimation results and findings of cost characteristics, designs of fare formula and subsidy scheme are then recommended.

  • Ancillary revenue and price fairness: an exploratory study pre and
           post flight
    • Authors: Blaise Waguespack, Tamilla Curtis
      Pages: 208 - 225
      Abstract: The growing impact of ancillary revenue on consumer choice and shopping behaviour continues to be a highly debated issue. In the USA, the Department of Transportation (DOT) entered into the debate and proposed new rules on how airlines must report and display such ancillary offerings which are driving airline profitability. This article examines past research on price fairness from the marketing literature and the role of revenue management (RM) on price fairness from the aviation literature to explore the impact of a la carte pricing and ancillary revenue on perceptions of price fairness. The study focuses on the issue of price fairness pre and post flight and how ancillary offerings are communicated to consumers when purchasing airline services. Support for differences in information availability between past and future flyers concerning knowledge of airline ancillary offerings was found and is believed to increase the potential price fairness perceptions of future passengers.

  • How to measure airport connectivity? - average shortest travel
           time and average highest path velocity as indicators
    • Pages: 226 - 240
      Abstract: Connectivity indicators quantify the quality of an airport's connection to the air transport network and the contribution of individual airlines to overall connectivity. In this paper, the authors present two new connectivity indicators: the average shortest travel time (ASTT) and the average highest path velocity (AHPV). Both indicators are based on a shortest path search algorithm that finds the optimal connections between worldwide airports with regard to travel time or number of stops. The main advantage of the new indicators is the calculation of the shortest travel time depending on the time of departure, therefore combining both the number of frequencies offered and the travel time into one indicator value. By integrating shortest travel time over time of day, the indicator rewards both short travel times and a high number of connection frequencies. The benefits of the newly developed indicators and possible applications are demonstrated by two brief case studies.
      Keywords: connectivity measurement; indicator; shortest path algorithm; travel time; airport connectivity; shortest travel time; highest path velocity; optimal connections; airport connections; aviation management.

  • A passenger's perspective of surface access issues at a UK regional
           airport: a case study of Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield
    • Authors: Tim J. Ryley, Alberto M. Zanni
      Pages: 241 - 255
      Abstract: For environmental reasons, there is a need to reduce surface access journeys by private car, particularly 'drop-off/pick-up' trips, and to increase public transport usage. This paper examines surface access issues at the UK regional airport of Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield (RHADS), using data from an airport survey of 438 passengers. Most respondents were holiday makers travelling to-and-from RHADS by car, either via drop-off/pick-up or their own vehicle. There were five distinct passenger groups generated from cluster analysis of the attitudinal statements and the surface access mode chosen. Apart from the public transport supporters segment, the groups strongly favoured car-based surface access travel, particularly car-loving socialites and the practical drop-offs. A lack of willingness amongst passengers to change away from car travel and towards public transport for surface access journeys was identified, making it very difficult for airports to reduce the environmental impact of such trips.

  • Forecast of air traffic's CO2 and NOx emissions until 2030
    • Authors: Tim J. Ryley, Alberto M. Zanni
      Pages: 256 - 273
      Abstract: This article presents both methodology and results of an emissions forecast for air traffic until the year 2030. Aircraft emissions include carbon dioxide (CO<SUB align="right">2) and nitric oxides (NO<SUB align="right">x), which influence atmospheric chemistry and may contribute to global warming. The forecast is based on a simulation model, which predicts future air traffic and its emissions using flight schedules for a base year in combination with traffic growth assumptions and a fleet rollover simulation. Aircraft performance software is applied to estimate fuel consumption, CO<SUB align="right">2 and NO<SUB align="right">x emissions. Models from the Base of Aircraft Data (BADA) are used to simulate today's fleet of aircraft, supplemented by additional models representing aircraft of the near future. Forecast results include the number of flights, passenger-kilometres, fuel consumption, CO<SUB align="right">2 and NO<SUB align="right">x emissions for air traffic from 2010 until 2030.

  • Slot premium: London Heathrow versus London Gatwick
    • Authors: Chunyan Yu, Bijan Vasigh
      Pages: 274 - 288
      Abstract: This paper provides a historical review of slot trades and transactions at London Heathrow Airport, and conduct an empirical analysis of revenue premium of flights out of Heathrow over Gatwick to see whether the sale prices of British West Indian Airways (BWIA) and Air Jamaica's Heathrow slots reflect the revenue premiums. Our results show that the average yield for short haul flights out of Heathrow more than doubles that for flights out of Gatwick, whereas the average yield for long haul flights out of Heathrow is about 11% higher than that out of Gatwick. Overall, the average yield for flights to/from Heathrow is about 45% higher than that for flights to/from Gatwick. The present values of the revenue premium of BWIA and Air Jamaica's Heathrow slots are estimated at £78 million and £83 million at 8% discount rate, respectively. Therefore, the sale prices of £5 million and £5.1 million for these slots in 2006 and 2007 appear to be undervalued.
