Straight and level

May 18, 2017

From our experience, performance issues at airlines can often be attributed to a few individual causes. To name just a few:

  • Pricing models with limited stimulation of passenger demand
  • Unclear price and product positioning
  • Low productivity of aircraft and crew driven by network and schedule structure
  • High aircraft operating costs
  • Unsuitable portfolio of ancillary services for the given market environment – Too large or too small
  • No view on the most attractive passenger segments, undifferentiated commercial approach

The good news: For most airlines, there is a wide range of optimization levers available challenging the underlying revenue and cost structures. Roland Berger can help airlines address these issues successfully.
