In a potentially disruptive move, two European regional airlines are joining forces. The combined fleet has critical mass. This will drive down costs and allow for aggressive pricing on wet leases.
It also opens questions about regional jet OEMs. These two airlines held their announcement in the Bombardier tent. Their loyalty to the CRJ program sends a signal.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
