Monarch collapse speeds up the consolidation of European airline industry
The collapse of the UK airline Monarch is yet another signal of consolidation in the European airline industry. It will have a series of effects on various parts of the aviation complex and creates opportunity for the strongest carriers to advance their positions further.

Monarch carried over 6m passengers last year and operated 35 short-haul A320/A321 and B737 aircraft. All of these assets were leased and will now have to find a new home inside or outside Europe. Employees of the airline, including over 400 pilots, will be searching for employment opportunities. Given the age of the airline many of these are seasoned pilots who will be of value to growth carriers. The routes on which Monarch operated, and the airports it served, will now be looking for other airlines to provide such flights. This gives leverage to airlines that are financially strong and have capacity to deploy in negotiations for new services.
