Just as the aviation sector is turning the corona corner, new challenges are looming. Geopolitical tensions, environmental concerns and the Great Resignation may delay a return to profitability for already debt-burdened airlines.
In our VZM Market Outlook 2022 for commercial aviation & maintenance we review these challenges. Exploding oil prices due to the conflict in Ukraine threatens economic growth in the upcoming years creating many uncertainties for heavily debt burdened airlines. It may delay but not prevent the recovery of the industry as there are strong signs of increased travel demand. These developments may provide aviation with a new leash of life as it can attract a new generation of engineers and technicians eager to join a multi-disciplinary team in a high-tech, attractive work environment.
