FL Technics Jets opinion on business aviation recovery


Private jet travel is rapidly evolving

In the climate of gradual recovery in the aviation sector that is taking
place after the global economic recession FL Technics Jets experts have
observed a tangible tendency of rapid recovery in the private jets’ market. It
is expected that by 2030 private jets’ fleet will have doubled in size reaching
up to 30,900 aircraft. In the meantime, one of the major growths in the private
jets’ market is forecast in Russia
and the CIS where the numbers by then are anticipated to grow almost four
times, up to 1,765 aircraft.

According to FL Technics Jets experts, in the countries where traffic
intensity is relatively low but there is great distances, the capacity and
assortment offered by private jets commonly outweighs the common benefits of
commercial aircraft. Furthermore, recent statistics suggests that in Africa,
Latin America and Eastern Europe the demand
for the most favoured 50-seat private jets is also intensifying. While the
largest aircraft fleet remains to be based in North America, China is
nominated as the most rapidly emerging aviation market in the world.  In terms of market size, Europe, including Russia and the
CIS, comes in the third position and is forecast to witness a further 17%
growth. In FL Technics Jets opinion, in the following three decades these three
regions will enjoy the largest demand in both private and commercial aircraft

‘The major factors stimulating the rapidly growing popularity of private
jets must primarily be time consumption and service quality. Private jets offer
not only fast and safe travelling facilities and flexible schedules but also
saves a lot of priceless time as one can hold business meetings right there,
whilst on board. Moreover, business jets can boast one of the lowest operating
costs within the aviation industry’ said Darius Saluga chief executive officer
of FL Technics Jets..

However, Saluga notes, regardless of the aforementioned tendencies
towards the increasing private jets popularity, in order to maintain a
continuous passenger and airlines’ flow, airports worldwide must keep
expeditiously expanding. With a view to maintaining healthy aviation climate we
must moderate the existing bureaucracy at our airports as it withholds us from
coming up to the current level of the aviation industry in Europe and North America.

Saluga says ‘China,
for instance, notwithstanding its size, has got slightly more than 150 civil
airports. It has a controlled airspace thus civil airliners are allowed to use
only a limited amount of air corridors that are mainly dominated by commercial
aircraft. As a result, private jets are often faced with the need to compete
for the most convenient time slots. In the meantime, a much more favourable
situation can be observed in Russia and the CIS where the air space is more
liberalized which makes the complicated air traffic procedures significantly
easier and the airport infrastructure more manageable.’
