Nov 3rd, 2011
Locatory.com experts point out that in order to win over a considerable market share in the extremely competitive and economically demanding environment the aviation sector must constantly seek for new ways of developing and expanding the existent and potential client base and increasing the rate of customer retention. The major task, however, is to determine the best strategy that would enable the industry to achieve the best possible results.

The spare parts and components sub-sector is no exception. For instance, a North American aircraft might require technical support and maintenance in Asia, Africa or Latin America.

‘Six out of ten largest aviation companies in the world operate from the USA. In order to raise awareness and strengthen position in the inner market and internationally (especially in the rapidly growing markets) aviation companies must put extra emphasis on their image. A properly developed and well positioned image is the key to attracting major investments. This fact ignored is one of the main reasons why smaller companies vanish every day giving way to larger, more experienced market players.', - concluded V.Vorobjovas.
