Executive Summary

According to Key Note’s 2012 Airlines Market Report, operating revenue generated by UK airlines increased by 1.5% in 2011, in comparison to the previous year. The number of passengers uplifted by UK airlines also increased over the same period, rising by 7.6%. Meanwhile, although an increase was exhibited in terms of seat and cargo kilometres used in 2011, of 6% and 2.7%, respectively, over the 5-year period between 2007 and 2011, these segments witnessed an overall decline.
Air transport to and from the UK can be divided into two segments; scheduled and non-scheduled services. Scheduled services is the largest of the two sectors, exhibiting an increase of 9.5% in 2011. However, non-scheduled services — which are generally operated by travel companies providing packaging holidays — exhibited decline in 2011, falling by 1.6% in comparison to 2010.
In recent years, the UK airlines industry has experienced declining passenger numbers on a consecutive basis, largely due to the impact of the global economic crisis. Other factors, however, have exacerbated the situation, with the eruption of the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull, in 2010, and subsequent ash cloud, halting flights across Europe, along with a period of unusually severe winter weather towards the end 2010 and the beginning of 2011, leading to a number of delays and cancelations. However, these factors receded somewhat in 2011, with healthy growth reversing the year-on-year decline in passenger numbers that has been a feature of the UK market since 2008.
Although the aviation industry has returned to growth, the future market is uncertain due to the lack of airport capacity in the south east of England. With Government aviation policy currently rejecting an additional runway at Heathrow, many in the aviation industry believe airlines will cease to focus on its UK activities, instead looking elsewhere for growth opportunities. However, the Government has commissioned a report on future airline capacity, due in 2015, and while it has ruled out expansion at Heathrow for its current term in office, it is possible that aviation policy could change, should the Government be elected for a second term.
Future growth in the airline industry is expected to continue over the short-term, with passenger numbers boosted by the Olympic and Paralympic Games in the summer of 2012, but economic uncertainty is expected to reduce the likelihood of significant growth thereafter. However, over the longer-term, as economic conditions improve, passenger numbers are expected to exhibit more significant growth, with Key Note forecasting a growth of 10.5% in the 5-year period to 2016 in the number of passengers uplifted by UK airlines.
