Arthur D. Little explores the future development of long-haul air travel
Since the mid 2000s the air-transport industry has been in an era of hyper-competition. Medium-haul has been irreversibly disrupted, and the sector has become a mass-market industry. Now airlines are preparing for the next battle in the sky: the fight for the long-haul traveler.
With lower regulatory barriers and the latest long-haul aircrafts delivering on their promises, new business models are emerging, from long-haul, low-cost (LHLC) to the revisited ultra-long range. Therefore, no one seems immune: neither legacy airlines around the world, nor the mighty Gulf carriers. All may have to rethink their strategies.
