The aviation industry is used to managing headwinds beyond its control. Capacity constraints in new aircraft deliveries, spare parts for essential maintenance of existing fleets and production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to reduce carbon emissions are all limiting factors in the industry’s ability to meet growing air travel demand and transition to clean energy. 

Airline manufacturers, and their suppliers, are under intense pressure from supply chain bottlenecks. Labour shortages, industrial action, and geopolitical tensions are all contributing factors which are collectively straining operational efficiency and adding upward pressure to already elevated ticket prices. 

As sustainability emerges as a higher priority for the aviation industry, the pressure will trickle down to suppliers to ensure all production and manufacturing procedures, as well as sourced raw materials and inputs, are sustainable. Further industry consolidation is also likely, which has implications for route networks, operational efficiencies and market dynamics, particularly in short-haul segments.

At BTG Advisory, we are your trusted partner to manage these uncertainties, assess the impact of all market changes on your business and capitalise on the opportunities. We work with aviation companies, their supply chain and funders across the business and economic cycle. Our team can assess financial health, devise strategies to mitigate supply chain and geopolitical risks and assist long-term financial stability. We can also provide independent balance sheet assessments to ensure sufficient financial resources to support your growth ambitions.
