Here are some of our published papers on the impact of Covid-19:

Our Perspectives on Air Transport looks at the impact of the crisis on airlines, airports and ANSPs and What Next?

Our popular 'one pagers' highlight specific areas of the industry:

  • Industry Job Losses – Huge, Long Term, Damage Continues: More than 620,000 direct, industry wide job losses have now been reported over the last nine months. Each of these jobs is estimated to support another 6+ jobs in the economy bringing the total impact to 4+million with further losses expected

  • Passenger Air Transport – Indexed Value Stream: Air Transport is a highly integrated value chain driven by passenger spending. Passenger Confidence = Travel Demand = Service Supply = Value Creation. How does PAX spend flow through the key players in the Air Transport system?

  • Airport Economics - PAX, Revenue & Cost Recalibration: As aviation takes its first tentative steps towards recovery, Five Aero's prognosis is that a significant & long term recalibration of airport economics will be required over the next 2-3 years

  • Airport Economics – Aero & Non Aero Revenue: Airport revenue streams will need to be fundamentally re-imagined & transformed for a post COVID-19 world in which there will be significant downward pressure from airlines on airport fees, and non–aero revenue is likely to be subdued 

  • European Air Traffic: With FY2020 down 6.1M flights vs FY2019, equivalent to the total combined air traffic handled by Frankfurt, Paris CdG, Schiphol, Heathrow, Madrid, Munich & Rome over a two year period, will European aviation enjoy a much needed summer or is it facing five consecutive winters?

  • European Hub Airports: Passenger and Cargo volumes have been impacted in a variety of ways at each of Europe's four main hub airports during 2020 and by viewing these airports in terms of Work Load Units we are able to compare activity throughput rates.

Covid-19 impact on ANSPs which discusses the impact of Covid-19 on Air Navigation Service Providers.

We have submitted written evidence to the UK parliamentary inquiry into the implications of Coronavirus on transport. It is based on this White Paper.
