@EmeraldMedia Pat Bryne @cityjet voices concern @LondonCityAir expansion / impact on raised fees. Great airport, but ‘most expensive in Europe.’

@EmeraldMedia #era16 Positivity, investment is theme. 8% more routes, 5% more seats,fleet orders up 9.4% @eraaorg @simonjmcnamara.

@EmeraldMedia #era16 breakfast chat this am – revival in interest of EMB145, @flyskywork to expand with more Saab 2000s. New faces @ATR @embraer.

@keynick 55% of the EU airline industry is dominated by “the big 5” (IAG, LH group, FR, U2, AF-KLM) w/ the remaining 45% made up of 120+ AOCs #era16.

@LeoMassettiERA Consolidation of airlines in Europe doesn’t make it easy for regional players to emerge, says Boet Kreiken, @eraaorg President #era16.

@LeoMassettiERA Fuel price, security, Brexit, US vote, migrant crisis: major sources of concerns for our business, says @eraaorg @simonjmcnamara  #era16.

@Lucy_Huxley @TUIGroup @nicklongman announces 350% increase in long haul holidays and an 800% increase in families taking long haul holidays #abta16.
