2017 was indeed an incredible year for aviation. Carriers the world over saw profits - and quite large ones at that - from passenger as well as cargo operations. While established aircraft manufacturers delivered a large number of planes, Russia and China got their act together to showcase their brand new single-aisle planes. There was also a fair amount of politics: the Airbus succession, the Bombardier-Airbus tie-up and, of course, the US Big Three versus the Middle East Big Three.
2017 was the year when IndiGo achieved a milestone that Indian carriers dream of: 1000 flights a day. It was also the year when the government's vision of letting the common Indian fly was realised through its Regional Connectivity Scheme.
There were the odd blips of instances where fliers were harassed and humiliated. Cruising Heights takes a close look at the year gone by.

The Year Of The Upstarts

If there is one segment that most carriers are interested in, it is the middle of the market, often abbreviated MoM, the airliner market between the narrowbody and the widebody aircraft. Over the last year, a number of aircraft manufacturers have put their best foot forward to get into the hallowed MoM segment.

The Monarch Is Dead...And So Is Air Berlin And Niki

“Important! Monarch has stopped operating. Please do not go to the airport.” A simple enough message but one that Britain’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) was forced to send out. The October 2, 2017 message was blunt but what else could the CAA do when the 49-year-old Monarch airline stopped flying.
