ALTEA’s perspective on the business & regional aviation markets.
Read the ALTEA team’s insights covering business and regional aviation with a 2021 retrospective and a look ahead to 2022.
Business Aviation >
Pre-owned business aircraft:
> An unprecedented demand for pre-owned aircraft and an uptick in prices.
New business aircraft:
> G400 & G800: Bombardier dreamt it; Gulfstream made it!
> Falcon 6X & Falcon 10X: The awakening of Falcons.
> Light to super mid-size jets – beyond the Challenger 3500, HondaJet 2600, Citation M2 Gen2, XLS Gen2 and CJ4 Gen2: the next space to watch?
Completions & Design >
Active market despite supply-chain issues:
> Jet Aviation and Greenpoint deliver 787 ‘firsts’.
Inspired design concepts:
> Dassault shows great potential and ACJ TwoTwenty creates its own niche.
> Innovation, sustainability and new markets create a positive outlook for cabin interiors.
Regional Aviation >
Regional aircraft recovery:
> Domestic markets are leading the way.
> Reduced capacity in place of larger single-aisle aircraft.
Widely predicted value declines are largely theoretical:
> Very few distressed sales of used aircraft have occurred.
The carbon footprint of all aircraft is increasingly taking centre stage:
> Turboprops have lower emissions than equivalent jets so watch Embraer’s next move in 2022.
Expect more orders for A220 and Embraer E2 Crossover jets in 2022:
> Both provide the lower capacity the market requires at best in class fuel consumption and therefore emissions.
