The outlook for aviation in South America

Although Bolivia’s GDP has increased markedly in recent years following the nationalization of the country’s hydrocarbon sector, growth in this capital-intensive industry has not led to significant job creation. However, income generated from international tourism could complement the energy market. The Lufthansa Consulting market study shows that there is definitely potential to expand the Bolivian tourism sector. In 2014, 1.4 million passengers travelled from Bolivia to destinations within and outside the South American continent. The demand for flights, particularly from Asian countries, is growing exponentially. Each year, 300,000 visitors from countries such as China, Japan and South Korea travel to Bolivia.

The Lufthansa Consulting study predicts that the creation of an aviation hub in Bolivia will boost tourist numbers substantially. A positive side effect would be the generation of new jobs in the country. Furthermore, a new Bolivian trans-Pacific airline would mean that 80 percent of the amount that Bolivian travelers currently spend on international flights would flow into Bolivia’s economy rather than strengthening other South American economies.

Due to its geographical position in the center of the South American continent, Bolivia is predestined to grow in importance as an international trade distributor and open new commercial paths by founding a trans-Pacific airline.

Liége Emmerz, Lufthansa Consulting’s Partner responsible for the South American market, and Managing Consultant Maciej Mazurowicz recently presented the results of their study and the potential for the country’s aviation sector to the Bolivian public authorities in Santa Cruz. As was to be expected, the market study has attracted strong media attention in Bolivia. One of the country’s most important business journals, Cash, recently published a detailed article about Bolivia’s opportunities in the aviation business.

Promising development for new business model

The days when drones were associated with scary spy planes operated mainly by the military are long over. The picture is changing constantly as every year more and more unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), as they are officially termed, are used for commercial reasons and, increasingly, for private purposes, too. Lots of companies worldwide already apply UAV technology in the fields of agriculture, logistics, the media and advertising.
 
The Lufthansa Group has also recognized the potential of unmanned aerial technology, which is expected to have a big impact on people’s daily lives in the near future. An aviation expert for more than 60 years, Lufthansa plans to stay one step ahead and is currently examining a new aviation service business: Commercial drone operations by Lufthansa Aerial Services (LAS). This developing Lufthansa business model, organizationally located within and affiliated to Lufthansa Consulting, is currently in a board-approved proof of concept phase until the beginning of 2017.
 
The idea is that LAS will provide civil drone flight operations to large infrastructure customers and institutions that need aerial inspections, surveillance, measurement and data documentation in difficult or dangerous-to-access sites like wind turbine rotor blades, bridges or overland pipelines. Additionally, LAS will deliver automated aerial data analyses and provide its customers with quick information about infrastructural pains, irregularities and hotspots. Clients will benefit in terms of costs, safety, reliability, data quality, speed and environmental impact and the company’s consulting, technical, flight and start-up experience. These services are relevant to many external customers in different sectors as well as to internal businesses.
 
Lufthansa Consulting is the perfect partner for the LAS initiative as it has already successfully advised many airlines in their start-up phase and is therefore ideally placed to act as an "incubator" for success, and provide the necessary consulting expertise and innovative clout. The LAS project team, which consists of members of the Corporate Strategy department of the Lufthansa Group and Lufthansa Consulting specialists, is highly motivated and well focused. Together they have already developed test cases with and for potential customers who were highly satisfied with the performance of Lufthansa Aerial Services. The current development and success of the business model LAS is highly encouraging for its possible future within the Lufthansa Group.

Affair of the heart: Lufthansa Consulting employees bake Christmas cookies

One evening in December the Lufthansa Consulting team met after work to fulfill a special Christmas mission – to support the help alliance and enable the aid organization to realize further projects and give happiness to people in need in developing countries.
 
The employees wanted to make a significant contribution to help alliance’s work by baking Christmas biscuits together and organizing donation stands where they offered the fruits of their labor. The baking event turned out to be great fun for everybody. Guidance, advice and assistance were provided by professional bakers in order to ensure the good quality and excellent taste of the cookies. The output after several hours of baking, eating, chatting and laughing together was a huge quantity of seven different sorts of delicious traditional German cookies which were offered in return for a donation at the stands in the Lufthansa canteens in Frankfurt during the lunch hour on two days in December.
 
The response was very good and Lufthansa Consulting’s staff received a highly welcome amount of donations. The company would like to thank all the Lufthansa Group colleagues who took part for their help in completing the mission and hopes that everyone who made donations enjoyed the hand-made biscuits, which were prepared with love.
 
help alliance was founded in 1999 by Lufthansa employees and is a registered charity under German law. Today, the organization supports about 40 aid initiatives per year around the world, helping mainly children, youths and women to create a better and independent life. Every project is monitored and looked after by a responsible member of the Lufthansa Group, Condor or other cooperating companies. The project managers always work in close cooperation with local partners who have longstanding experience in development aid work.

It is time to celebrate 40 years of experience and success!

In 1976, Lufthansa Consulting was established as a department of Deutsche Lufthansa AG in Cologne and since then, brought its aviation expertise to perfection. In 1988, LCG was set up as an independent subsidiary and started to strengthen its regional focus and services for the Lufthansa Group. In 2014, the company moved its headquarters to the Frankfurt Airport Center and founded Lufthansa Consulting Ltda. in the same year.
For a closer insight, read the full article about LCG’s main steps in its four decades of existence:

Process orientation enhances efficiency and profit

“The big drop has given airlines more financial firepower”, Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs recently said. How true – and precisely because airlines currently have a cost-friendly environment with the lowest fuel prices for more than a decade, they would be well advised to take advantage of this fact to continuously work on improving their efficiency. It is well-known that aviation companies are under constant pressure to achieve and ensure sustainable profits.

Now is the best time to prepare for the future, by securing profit margins or initiating restructuring measures. Liquidity is at a healthy level and cash flows present the opportunity to finance necessary investments.

Long-term profitability means overcoming inefficiencies often found in and between areas within a company that has grown over the years. Efficient processes are the basics for a lean structure and prerequisites to reducing costs in all areas of the organization.

Supporting clients in achieving this goal, Lufthansa Consulting offers a comprehensive holistic approach to introduce process orientation in organizations: the basic idea is to focus on value-adding activities as well integrated processing and handling. The involvement of the client’s own experts in co-operation with specialists from Lufthansa Consulting ensures state-of-the-art and realistic process re-design, thus leading to smooth implementation and tangible results at the venture itself.

Lufthansa Consulting has successfully applied this approach in many aviation companies around the world, aiming towards increased competitiveness.

Lufthansa Aerial Services division inks deal with drone-maker DJI

Lufthansa Aerial Services, a division of Lufthansa Consulting,  signed a deal with DJI to use the world’s leading drone-maker’s aerial platforms to develop commercial applications for its key customers. Using DJI’s drones and open onboard systems, Lufthansa will integrate hardware and software, manage operation of the technology and facilitate data analysis. The two companies will work together to optimize the technology for special requirements sought by Lufthansa Aerial Services customers.
 
Lufthansa Aerial Services e.g. recently completed a pilot project with a wind-turbine manufacturer, using DJI equipment to inspect rotor blades on wind turbines. The task previously required manual inspection using a steeplejack – a more-dangerous and time-consuming method. In addition to the safety factor, drones can collect data that can be used later for analysis, such as how frequently a rotor blade needs inspection and maintenance. Lufthansa Aerial Services is also involved in aviation-industry projects at and around airports, as demonstrated through recent tests with Fraport and DFS on Frankfurt International Airport, but also carrying out joint inspections of Lufthansa aircraft surfaces with sister company Lufthansa Technik.
 
Beyond these mentioned example use cases, LAS also plans to deploy drones equipped with thermal-imaging systems that can facilitate day-to-day inspections of infrastructure, such as wind power and photovoltaic systems, electricity and railroad lines and pipelines laid above ground. Aerial technology also makes it easier to monitor crops, construction and extraction sites. Though commercial drones are readily available, many of LAS’s key clients and manufacturers choose not to operate them by themselves, because it is not their core business. Many clients also prefer to outsource due to the technology’s complexity, knowledge of regulatory frameworks and quality and safety-management issues.
 
“Lufthansa will offer clients a one-stop UAV-shop,” says Andreas Jahnke, Managing Director of Lufthansa Consulting. “This includes everything from application consulting and drone operation with data analysis, to training and certification of drone pilots at Lufthansa Flight Training, or even the provision of drone insurance solutions through Delvag, Lufthansa’s in-house insurer.”

Public Service Obligations – a highly relevant topic for both large and small countries

In highly competitive aviation markets, it is no secret that airlines prefer to operate on routes with sufficient and sustainable demand, and that airports are more willing to be served by larger aircraft. In this situation, small regional airports with low traffic potential face a dilemma: they were built to provide the connection with the rest of the country, but they cannot maintain small unprofitable regional connections independently.
 
In most cases, the government supports operations and the related infrastructure on such networks in order to provide a minimum level of transport accessibility and connectivity. But there are several problems. First of all, most of the time financial help doesn’t meet the actual needs. Not every country is able to grant a sufficient level of financial aid. Secondly, an outdated fleet serves the local network. Due to the unprofitability of the service and the lack of opportunities for modernization, operational costs increase constantly. This leads to the third issue – low service levels and low frequencies have a negative impact on demand and increase customer uncertainty. People are not satisfied either with the quality or the volume of the transportation provided.
 
These problems concern countries whether they have a large or a small land area. The Russian Federation, for example, faces huge challenges in terms of arranging frequent local air transportation services. This is due to the long distances and the limited market potential of remote regions. Lufthansa Consulting conducted research on the effectiveness and commercial efficiency of the current subsidy scheme in the Russian Far East region, which is 1.5 times larger than the area of the European Union and a population density that is more than 100 times lower than in the EU. Likewise, from their comprehensive experience of projects in Kazakhstan, the consultants were well aware that small communities in that country would also benefit from optimized subsidies to the regions. During the analysis, the opportunities for economic optimization for both regions were identified and suggested to the stakeholders which could increase subsidy efficiency, passenger traffic and population mobility.
 
There are several ways to improve the situation. The first step is to identify the optimal configuration of a fleet that can serve the local network and operate within the existing infrastructure. Modernizing the fleet and increasing frequencies will help not only to lower operational costs, but also to increase the attractiveness of the service.
 
An increase in supply often stimulates demand when alternative modes of transport are not available or when air transport generates significant time savings that bring economic value to passengers. Building up an optimal route network and redirecting passenger flows from point-to-point to feeder routes via regional hubs increases air traffic, improves connectivity and broadens the scope of the network.
 
On the other hand, such relatively small countries as Estonia face the same problems. For instance, the current connections between the country’s islands and Tallinn simply does not meet needs of the society and at the same time is not supported by sufficient passenger traffic.
 
Lufthansa Consulting therefore initiated research on this issue in cooperation with the Rakendusuuringute Keskus Centar in Estonia. The combination of Lufthansa Consulting’s experience of optimized regional subsidies in the Russian Federation and CIS states and the deep local market understanding of experts from Rakendusuuringute Keskus Centar led to the development of best-practice approaches. As a result of the study, a guideline was elaborated listing the main strategic and operative factors the government has to consider when supporting regional air transportation and bringing economic efficiency to Public Service Obligation (PSO) routes. A mechanism for subsidizing socially important routes was also developed.
 
Lufthansa Consulting’s evaluative approach helps the respective state to carefully consider the potential commercial viability of transportation, which plays an important social role, and to take into account the interests of all the market players – government, business world and public.
