Aviation Trends 2010
For the second year running we have the pleasure of publishing Aviation Trends, an English-language edition of the magazine of the Swedish Transport Agency (Transportstyrelsen) for our international readers.
The international issue is a selection of articles from our quarterly report Flygtendenser, which includes flight safety and passenger statistics, analyses and a selected topic for each issue. Within the scope of these topics we do more detailed studies of various parts of the aviation market. During 2009 the following topics were dealt with: the financial crisis, domestic aviation, flight safety cultures and air freight. Before Sweden assumed the EU presidency in July 2009 we published a special issue focusing on EU and European civil aviation.
