Unfortunately, once again VZM was forced to cancel the 21st VZM “Dutch Aviation Open” golf tournament on September 14. The present corona restrictions are making effective networking – which is the prime reason for organizing the event – impossible.
As follow-up of the VZM Market Outlook 2021, VZM organized an online session with 9 senior leaders from the aviation industry at the end of May. The participants had a lively discussion elaborating and discussing the scenarios described in this year’s outlook. Furthermore, they exchanged lessons learned from the pandemic period and expected developments in the industry.
MRO Management of May 2021 includes the article How will the industry evolve from 2022 onwards? in which VZM elaborates the scenarios described in the VZM Market Outlook 2021. Following an excerpt from the article.
When our team had the first discussion for the annual VZM Market Outlook we quickly concluded that the market conditions are still very fluid. Will we be confronted with even more pandemic waves or mutations of the coronavirus? Has the pandemic permanently changed our thinking about working from home, traveling less, and becoming more environment-conscious?
The whole article can be found in the MRO Management May edition.
We are in the middle of a global pandemic which is having a devastating impact on the aviation industry. Exiting the Great Lockdown is surrounded by many uncertainties. What seemed to be a pessimistic scenario half a year ago is today considered to be an optimistic scenario. Therefore, it makes sense right now to use scenario planning to prepare your business for a still uncertain future.
In our VZM Market Outlook 2021 for commercial aviation & maintenance we selected a few thought-provoking scenarios to help stimulate your thinking about the future. For each of the scenarios we elaborate on what we think could be the effect on the economy, the airline industry, aircraft delivery and the MRO market.
We hope you enjoy this 21st edition and look forward to your feedback and comments.

At the end of 2020 VZM moved from Sassenheim to become a company registered in Hoofddorp, The Netherlands.
At the same time, the telephone landline has been terminated as customers and relations are used to call the VZM team members on their mobile numbers. The e-mail addresses and website address have not changed.
Like almost everyone in the aviation industry, VZM has been affected by the corona epidemic in 2020. Still, VZM managed to close the year with similar results as 2019.
In past half year VZM has been able to support its customers to cope with the challenging times. The VZM team assisted them with identifying cost savings and preparing their organizations for the post-pandemic realities.
Unfortunately, the restrictions made it impossible to organize our Diversium in 2020, despite interest expressed by VZM’s relations. Furthermore, the annual VZM Dutch Aviation Open golf tournament needed to be postponed.
VZM expects to close this year with similar results to 2019.
