Aviation


DEA brings significant worldwide experience in aviation sector policy making and technical regulation, as well as private sector participation and investment mobilization for airports and airlines.

Airlines

Air cargo Fotolia_1970293_XS.jpgMarket & Fleet Strategy and Plannng: The DEA team can help newly formed and emerging airlines to evaluate, decide and implement business development strategies by helping the airline answer questions like "what kind of airline it should be? Long haul or short haul, emphasize Passenger or Cargo, low cost no frills or full service luxury, etc". Answers to questions like these determine an airline's market and geographic focus, route planning, fleet strategy, financing strategy, recruitment and training and many other strategic decisions. We help the airline make these decisions by providing the best research, analyses, industry knowledge and experience available today.

Restructuring: Our unique combination of financial and aviation sector expertise and experience, allows us to offer relief to distressed airlines through innovative financial restructuring combined with operational remediation services to help recover from difficult situations. We can help arrange mutually beneficial private public partnerships for distressed flag carriers to help allieviate the fiscal burden while preserving and strengthening the national identity.

Bilateral Negotiations: We advise Governments and national carriers on bilateral negotiations to improve access and traffic and also to get the most equitable arrangements possible.

Clean Air and Clean Development Planning: An emerging area of practice for us is helping airports ( and airlines) develop strategies to reduce their carbon emissions. For example, we can help help airports develop their Carbon emmission reduction (CER) data as they decide to make the transition from radar to GPS for ATC. Similarly we will work with airlines to help them develop a corporate CER strategy and in particular identify and quantify their CER as they introduce new technoiogies.

Airports

We help airports conceive and develop specialized or distinctive competitve advantages to draw traffic away from other locations. We can help with competitive tariff planning not only for infrastructure but also for services to make the airport more attractive both for airlines, passengers and shippers.

Public Private Partnerships: DEA specializes in desigining and implementing public private partneships for the operation and ownership of airports. The extensive experience of our associates in this practice, allow us to design concessions and other arrangements with the right balance of incentives, penalties and risk sharing to help provide a win-win arrangement for all stakeholders.
