The October issue of Low Cost & Regional Airline Business is now online

Posted on 4 September 2018

The October issue of Low Cost & Regional Airline Business is now online


In this issue we find out what lies ahead for Bombardier’s C Series, now that the family of aircraft is in the hands of Airbus. The leadership team announced for the joint venture going forward includes many of the Bombardier leadership team with President Fred Cromer predicting the partnership will allow the programme to achieve its full potential and change the way people think about the C Series.


We look at how the maintenance industry is improving efficiency and adding value to operations now that an increasing OEM interest in aftermarket services, tailored support, training and real-time, paperless IT processes has shaped MRO provision over the past 12 months.



The global airline industry is on the cusp of a connectivity revolution. With budget carriers moving into the long haul arena, we find that inflight entertainment and connectivity brings new opportunities, including broadband access revenues, e-commerce opportunities, advertising and premium content. 


Other articles in this issue include:

Check-in management: Baggage only
