@newsnigel Understand your market using data to help your conversations with airlines – Edinburgh Airport discovered that education (especially university staff) was their biggest driver of business #RoutesEurope2018 #RoutesEurope.

@newsnigel While there’s been much innovation in airline/airport check-in there has been a lot less innovation in the boarding process – it’s a pain point for customers, says @easyjet director of strategy and network Robert Carey at #Routeseurope2018 #routeseurope.

@RegionalGateway “When it comes to acquisitions, my advice to other airlines would be to ensure there is compatibility between business models and culture, otherwise there will be discord within the business and among passengers” – Ray Webster, former CEO #easyjet #RoutesEurope.

@WesleyCharnock “I don’t see long-haul low-cost as a viable model. Operating a small aircraft across the Atlantic is not efficient, and low-cost carriers aren’t going to fill a 787 or an A380” Ray Webster, former CEO of easyJet tells #RoutesEurope.

@WesleyCharnock “Low-cost airlines have had it easy for a while now with low volatility, and they’ve become less efficient. At some point there will be a correction. Some of those lessons have been forgotten.” Former @easyJet CEO Ray Webster at #RoutesEurope.
