Launching a new airline
Back to writing after a few weeks of (blogging) silence...!
This was not because there were no interesting news in the industry, but due to some personal and professional developments: I have recently started collaborating professionally with Dobrolet (Добролёт), Aeroflot's up and coming low cost carrier.
Those of you that read this blog regularly might already familiar with my interest in the Russian airline industry. No wonder then, that when the opportunity came up to join this new and exciting project (Russia is possibly the "last frontier" when it comes to low cost airline development!) I did not think twice.
Every good thing has usually a trade-off and, in this case, in being affiliated with an industry player means I am no longer an independent observer, but rather an industry insider. In practical terms this means that, for obvious reasons, I will very likely abstain from writing about topics upon which I have some type of direct or indirect professional involvement.
However, I plan to continue updating this blog in the measure of what's possible and sharing interesting stories and my views about this fascinating industry.
By the way, I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that for more frequent updates and lots of aviation-related content (not only written by me!) you can also follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
