  • Buoyant Market: Europes seaplane

    News | 09 Apr 2007 23:00 | Kate Sarsfield

    <P><STRONG>After years of decline, a new wave of operators are poised to revive Europe's moribund seaplane services. Are there enough aircraft to keep them afloat?</STRONG></P> <P>Seaplanes have become a byword in Europe for nostalgia, conjuring visions of a bygone era in the early decades of the last century when seaplanes and flying boats were a common feature in its skies and, on its shores, airframers were busy building and developing designs to satisfy the demand for waterborne air transport. </P> <P>Many places, notably Alaska, Canada, the Maldives, the Seychelles and the Caribbean, have for years played host to thriving seaplane operations, mostly supporting remote communities and tourist activities. In contrast, the European seaplane market went into an irreversible decline around 60 years ago, where it remained until the turn of the century.</P> <P> <TABLE style="WIDTH: 445px" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 align=center border=0> <TBODY> <TR> <TH> <H6 align=right><IMG sthttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Buoyant-Market-Europes-seaplane-213185/
  • Mixed fortunes

    <p>Last year, the 100 largest regional airlines in the world carried 124 million passengers, employed 87,000 people, and flew 2,700 jet and turboprop aircraft. Only just over half provided revenue figures and even fewer divulged profits, but among those that did report financial figures, revenues grew 14.8 per cent to a total of $9.4 billion. The 33 regionals reporting profits made a collective net profit of over $200 million and a net margin of 3.9 per cent. </p> <p>The volatility of the regional airline sector is underlined by the variation in passenger growth figures. The fastest growing regional carrier, SA Express, increased passenger numbers by 150 per cent to 500,000, and Brasil Central and Hamburg Airlines more than doubled their traffic last year. Several other regionals - such as Eurowings, Rio-Sul, Aer Lingus Commuter, Gulfstream International, TAM and Skyways of Scandinavia - achieved growth rates unheard of in the mainstream airline business. </p> <p>However, some regionhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Mixed-fortunes-15808/
