In an uncertain world, from the disruption of Brexit to the likely confrontationalist attitudes of a Trump administration, and instability in many parts of the world, from Russia to the Middle East to Asia, Australia and New Zealand’s aviation sectors are mostly in rude health, with liberal policy settings and globally high service levels. Yet each of the main airlines in Australia and New Zealand still relies heavily on its domestic markets.

Spending big on travel at the Post-Christmas Sales. Demand, supply and opportunity

3 January, 2017

Christmas is traditionally a time for giving. And Boxing day is traditionally a time for nursing that hangover or food coma from the day before. But food and wine aside, the days from Boxing Day onward also signal the commencement of the retail sector's own messiah - the post-Christmas sales.

Dreaming of a [delayed or cancelled] white Christmas in Europe? How passengers are protected (Part 1)

28 December, 2016

As heavy fog, snow and the occasional stray reindeer lead to what will be the almost inevitable havoc at Europe’s airports this Christmas period, the Blue Swan Daily looks at the European regulation providing protection to passengers travelling to and from the EU - as well as the airline industries’ push to ensure the right balance is maintained.

Delays, cancellations and denied boarding are an unavoidable part of air travel, particularly during the busy winter festive season. For those travelling to Europe, EU Regulation 261/2004 (the “Regulation”) sets out a series of entitlements available to eligible passengers in the event of such delays.

Badgerys Creek: The airport everyone needs and nobody wants

20 December, 2016

Western Sydney Airport (The airport of dreams) is currently planned to become operational in 10 years’ time. That is sufficiently long to be beyond political horizons and for the usual assortments of opponent to form up once again: political opportunists, environmentalists, NIMBYs and every other form of inertia that prevents airports being built, or even used effectively.
