Industry Crises

Industry Crises

It is unfortunate that aviation – an industry of such central importance to Europe’s economic and social cohension – should also be an industry which remains financially volatile, technically complex and extremely susceptible to range of external shocks, be they volcano ash plumes, severe weather, political unrest or incidents of terrorism to name but a few. Add to the mix the industry’s reliance on an overburdened infrastructure, and aviation quickly becomes an industry all too prone to crisis. Given its importance to Europe’s citizens, aviation industry leaders have to work together with decision-makers, to resolve these crises when they arise, communicating the outcomes to the public where possible.
