Low Cost Long Haul To Short Haul Connectivity – NextGen Facilitation And Technology
In these circumstances, airports are faced with constantly shifting and conflicting airline needs/demands, with an array of airline types, from pure LCC, through hybrid to full service carriers. The sort of issues that constantly arise are for example:
- Whether dedicated LCC facilities are needed; and
- How to deal with shifting needs as LCCs seek to connect with FSCs.
- Airport-airline relationships: Can airlines protect against the goalposts shifting under airport ownership changes?
On a broader level:
- Is increasing competition at primary airports taking on new meanings?
- What implications are there for infrastructure investment and facilities conversion?
- How fast and to what extent will LCCs want greater connectivity, online and interline?
- How important a feature will this become in competition between airports – and to what extent will regulatory matters intervene?
Much will depend on the profile of airlines currently serving the airport – and what segments the airport is targeting for the future. This panel looks at this complex array of issues from various perspectives.
