    There is something very important that most airlines either do not recognise – or don’t wish to: The future airline industry will never be the same again. In 2021 at least, there'll be very limited business travel, perhaps as much as 50% of previous levels in the second and half of the year, but even that's probably optimistic. The loss of business travel will undermine the full service airline business model and limit what has traditionally been an important and profitable market segment. In this edition of CAPA Live, we look at the recovery of business travel and try to answer: What segments of the industry will return first? What technology exists to help support recovery? How have the expectations of business travellers changed?

    In-depth interview with KLM CEO Pieter Elbers

    Pieter Elbers has been CEO of the Netherlands' national airline KLM since 2014, making him one of the longest serving heads of a leading European legacy carrier.

    Part of the Air France-KLM group, KLM is a top 10 European airline in its own right, ranked by 2019 passenger numbers. Historically, it has also been a pioneer in the development of the international hub and of airline alliances.

    The pandemic has placed pressure on both of these concepts, but KLM has been operating at a higher percentage of pre-crisis capacity than most other major European airlines. Mr Elbers said in May-2021 that KLM did not expect further job cuts or need additional cash.

    CEO Interview with Wizz Air’s Jozsef Varadi

    Wizz Air is a low cost carrier based in Budapest. The carrier predominantly uses secondary airports and is continuously looking at opportunities to expand its network of destinations and provide low-cost air transport to and from Central and Eastern Europe. The LCC has aggressive growth plans and its low unit costs and healthy balance sheet should help them to recover with greater capacity growth when the recovery materialises, since it is likely to be a recovery led by price sensitive market segments rather than by high yield business traffic.

    It cannot be denied that leading any part of an airline in 2021 is going to look very different than ever before. The impact of COVID-19 has required all airlines to reassess their processes, innovate and adapt to a new world order.

    In Nov-2020, CAPA’s Chairman Emeritus stated: “It is important to have some sort of reality check now that we’re nine months on from the onset of this COVID-19 disaster. Fundamentally, we’re looking at a new platform from which the industry will build over the next decade.

    What will the new situation be like? Most people realise now, unless they're really deluding themselves, that it is going to be a structurally very different industry”.

    As we look further into 2021, we ask key airline executives to explore how they will run their business differently and what they expect from the year ahead.

    • How has COVID-19 impacted processes within airline management?
    • How has the additional focus of staff and passenger safety changed the way airlines are run?
    • What will recovery look like?

    CEO Interview with Widerøe’s Stein Nilsen

    Wideroøe is a primarily domestic airline in Norway. Its business consists of two pillars: public service obligation (PSO) routes connecting remote regions of the country on the West Coast and in the North, plus its own commercial airline network. During the pandemic, the airline continued to offer 70-80% of its capacity even though passenger numbers dropped sharply in some months. Wideroøe is committed to the target of operating zero emission domestic flights soon and is working closely with Rolls-Royce on the future of electric aircraft.
