As much as I love Christmas and the festive holiday, the moment it is over I am keen to move on to the challenges of the new year.


While 2016 certainly had its challenges for the global aviation industry, it would be lovely to look forward to 2017 with fresh optimism and renewed hopes. But not overly realistic.


Terrorism was a major issue last year, touching every corner


of the globe. Sadly, experts at a recent aviation conference in Europe are advising airports to expect further attacks in the future and have urged them to focus on security (page 58).


Similarly, the US is facing uncertainty as to what exactly Donald Trump’s presidency means for the country. Let’s hope he can leave Twitter alone long enough to listen to the demands of those in Florida’s route development industry made on page 49.


Canada’s aviation industry has also been desperate for some relief from onerous state legislation, particularly over airline ownership. Page 43 shows how things might be about to improve for the better and reflects a more positive future for the industry.


Likewise, Air Cairo is bucking the gloom and proving that working hard in a difficult market can bring success as a result (page 20).


“EUROPE IS LOOKING AT AN INTERESTING YEAR AS OUR ANALYSIS OF RECENT M&A ACTIVITY REVEALS.”


All Nippon Airways not only has an ambitious five-year plan for the future but is also making strong headway in its implementation, as our story on page 14 shows. Meanwhile, Europe is looking at an interesting year as our analysis of recent M&A activity reveals on page 25. Change will be guaranteed once the dust has settled.


Destinations are also proving resilient in the face of recent problems with Australia leading the Pacific Rim’s aviation growth (page 36). Mexico is also enjoying a boom, as our Number Cruncher reveals on page 32.


The people who work in the industry also remain optimistic and an interview with the new Routes brand director Steven Small (page 71) shows just how much potential he believes the route development sector has.


So perhaps that should be the way to view 2017. Don’t ignore the problems as they are real and have potentially appalling ramifications. But do remember aviation is a positive force and your hard work will continue to ensure its success.
