The board of directors for Pakistan International Airlines have rejected proposed budget plans for 2014, highlighting the airlines’ need to cut operational costs in order to continue to survive.
The reality is that this is happening across the globe and, especially in the global financial climate, the consensus is that many airlines, regardless of size, must look at ways to cut operational costs.
Although many countries announce a promising recovery from financial despair, it is clear that the changes may not come quickly enough for some.
Aviation consultancy agencies offer a service that has become invaluable in order to recognise the areas that can cut operational costs.
Big companies, such as ARINC, who bring more than 80 years of aviation messaging experience to the table, are able to offer insightful evidence that operational messaging budgets can be cut considerably. Saving money in this area can help enormously when operations management is considered.
Web-based solutions and cost-sharing programs for multiple airlines are made possible with CUTE systems and vMUSE technology.
Like PIA, airlines across the world can benefit from consultancy services when business survival is on the line.
