Norwegian overtakes Scoot as second largest long haul LCC after AirAsia X: long haul low cost Part 3
In 3Q2017 Norwegian will overtake Singapore’s Scoot to become the world’s second largest long haul low cost airline after Malaysia’s AirAsia X. Ironically Norwegian’s new route from London Gatwick to Singapore will help propel it into the number two position.
Gatwick-Singapore is one of 20 new long haul routes being launched by Norwegian over the next five months, giving the LCC group 48 long haul routes. Norwegian will have more long haul routes at the end of 3Q2017 than both AirAsia X and Scoot, but AirAsia X will still have significantly more capacity.
Long haul low cost operations now account for less than 0.5% of total global seat capacity, but the sector is expanding fast and starting to become more mainstream. This summer there will be more than 160 long haul low cost routes operated by 16 airlines.
Global airport construction review 1Q2017 – focus on Latin America and Africa
The annual airport construction overview report for 2017 focuses on Latin America and Africa, two regions that are often overlooked but which make their contribution to the global total of activity. One of them, Africa, is surprisingly strong in new airport construction, as long as the funding can be found, which is no easy task.
The total known global investment on airport projects continues to grow, and hovers close to the USD1 trillion mark; and with Asia Pacific the overall leader.
There are, however, anomalies, with some regions witnessing many projects but small investment figures, and vice versa. This report attempts to explain those anomalies while offering a breakdown of the biggest projects in each region.
