In preparation of our ‘Big Launch’ at World Routes 2015, OAG have given us some great coverage giving you an idea as to what you can expect from our new Consultancy company.
“JG Aviation Consultants is to launch at the World Routes route development forum in Durban, South Africa this weekend.
The new business, JG Aviation Consultants, will specialise in market intelligence, data analysis and strategy. It will harness Grant’s extensive experience of air service development, transaction due diligence and business turnarounds, serving a diverse client group including airlines, airports, travel organisations, financial institutions and government.
Grant is launching the business after five years as executive vice president of OAG, the market leader in airline schedule data and aviation analytics. Previously, he was managing director of ASM, the leading air service and aviation consultancy. Under Grant’s leadership, ASM was twice voted the best consultancy by the UK Airport Operators Association.
Previously, Grant worked at British Caledonian on the development of its Middle East network, and at Air UK and KLM, where he managed commercial operations and led the rebranding of Air UK.
Grant is to continue his association with OAG and will act as the company’s senior aviation analyst and principal spokesman on aviation issues.
Grant says: “Despite the current let-up in the oil price, the challenge of turning a profit from aviation and travel remains immense. JG Aviation Consultants meets the industry’s need for data-driven insights coupled with strategic and operational best practice.
“Clients will benefit from our partnership with OAG, which entails ongoing access to the complete OAG analytics tool set. We will help clients isolate and evaluate the right information to support better decision-making.
“In the coming months I look forward to bringing former colleagues and other industry experts into the team to further expand our capabilities and serve clients around the globe.”
Grant will be a panelist at the World Routes Strategy Summit, which takes place alongside World Routes in Durban on Sunday 20 and Monday 21 September.”
