Avinode Business Intelligence Not-To-Be-Missed NBAA 2012 Press Conference and Forum


WICHITA, KS – Anyone associated with business aviation is encouraged to attend the Avinode Business Intelligence press conference at this year’s NBAA convention in Orlando, FL. It will be held from 1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 30 in Room N 220A of the Orange County Convention Center.

Avinode will present their annual business jet market forecast for 2013, featuring up-to-the-minute analysis on traffic projections and market trends, both in the United States and abroad. The report will look at differences in activity by region, aircraft categories and time-of-year. From these snapshots of quantifiable activities, bigger pictures begin to emerge that panelists will speak to during the open forum. These will be explored in some depth.

Forecasting for industries and market trends take shape as Avinode generates forward-looking demand projections. Projections will include a look at the total global picture. The forecasts will include:

    • Year-over-year projections for business jet traffic in 2013

    • Regional market forecasts for the contiguous United States and Europe

  • Jet category traffic forecasts

“This session uses data as a springboard to develop the context and insights needed for true market-based analysis,” says Magnus Henriksson, Business Unit Director, Avinode Business Intelligence. “People typically walk away with at least a few surprises along with a better understanding of what’s happening and how that can and should affect their decisions moving forward.”

Trends include a significant movement toward economy. “People are downgrading to save money,” says Henriksson. “We see entry-level jets taking marketshare from light jets, super lights taking business from midsize jets, super-midsize taking from heavy jets. Only ultra long-range aircraft show little, if any, price sensitivity.” Another dichotomy: more growth is happening in the U.S. South and West during seasons targeted to entertainment and discretionary travel. “The more business-travel focused Northeast and Midwest continue to struggle,” says Henriksson.

A panel discussion immediately follows the press conference. It brings together charter industry leaders from across the globe to discuss key issues. David McCown, Senior Consultant, Air Partner Inc. will serve as moderator. Panelists include:

          Veriar Collins-Jenkins, Director of Charter, Clay Lacy Aviation
          Christine Amos, VP Charter Sales, Jet Aviation
          Magnus Henriksson, Business Unit Director, Avinode Business Intelligence
          Marc Drobny, SVP Charter and Vendor Services, Executive Jet Management
          Björn Näf, CEO, MetroJet
          Paul Travis, Operations Manager, Acropolis Aviation
