Robust and continuous planning is more critical than ever

For aviation, business planning is evolving into a continuous activity rather than a periodic exercise. The planning is needed across multiple business functions such as strategy, operations, finance, and risk. Given its critical importance, planning decisions must be anchored on accurate, timely and bespoke research which is high quality, consultative, best practice-driven and outcome-focused.
