#AviaDevEurope – the latest news updates

(Posted 25th March 2022)

Dear colleagues,

This week I’d like to draw your attention to my conversation with David Perez, the CEO of Tenerife Tourism which we recorded in David’s office in Santa Cruz. It was my first time on the island, so it was fascinating to hear directly from my David about their plans and strategies for the recovery.Next week will be very exciting. For the first time since the pandemic began 2 years ago, I’m going to an aviation conference! Let me know if you’ll be in Cluj for the Aviation Event, I’m truly looking forward to meet friends old and new there! Stay safeJuraj
Tearing down the stereotypes as Tenerife recovers It felt just great after a very long time to actually sit down and record a podcast in person. That’s what I did in Tenerife a few weeks ago when I visited David Perez, the CEO of Turismo Tenerife. Hear directly from David about the plans and strategies for the recovery journey of this breathtaking destination.

The Last Week of Winter:

Forward Airline Capacity Looks Bright and Forward Travel Bookings Look Even Brighter… As another Northern Hemisphere Winter Season draws to a close, this week’s headline flight data is slightly down on recent weeks. As a result of significant Covid-19 capacity cuts in China due to Covid-19 outbreaks, global airline capacity has settled back to 80.8 million seats and there are significant movements in global positioning – more on that later. However with the arrival of the Summer Season, capacity is going to increase significantly.In the below chart we have added the latest airline capacity for June 2022 which currently stands at some 460 million which is just 7% below the 2019 mark, although it will inevitably settle back a bit from that number as airlines refine their schedules in the coming months subject to demand.

Croatia Airlines finalises summer network 

Croatia Airlines plans to operate 16.000 flights during the summer season, which begins this Sunday and lasts until October 30. The carrier has put close to 1.7 million seats on sale during this period and will maintain 41 international routes. In a strategic shift, the Croatian carrier will serve the most destinations out of Split, instead of its hub in Zagreb, although the latter will still boast the most flights overall. As previously reported, the airline will introduce five new routes out of Croatia’s second-largest city and maintain services to eighteen points in Europe. Apart from the new additions, it will resume seasonal flights to Athens, which were suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic, and bring back operations to Prague, which were launched last summer.
