North Star has released its 5th Annual Global Air-Rail Market Intelligence Report.

North Star’s Managing Director, Richard Brown explains that the report analyses global trends in air-rail services, and is based on a study of nine leading air-rail operators across Europe, Australia, Asia and South Africa. “The findings again clearly indicate that air-rail services continued to be a vital component of global aviation”, says Brown. “In fact, across our sample of nine operators, more than 44 million train passenger movements were experienced during 2016”.

However, the report concludes that the combined market share index for the nine operators show a slight decrease in people choosing rail when travelling to and from airports around the world.

Market Share 2017 Index

On the 4th July 2007, North Star was born. Over the last decade, we have grown from a small team working in the UK to a team of experts working across the globe.

“I am pleased to say that demand for North Star’s specialist rail operations expertise in the UK, Europe and internationally continues to grow. In the past 6 months we have provided operations advice, proposal management services, public sector advice and assistance to airports in rail connectivity on behalf of clients in the UK, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, France and the United Arab Emirates.

As always, we apply our customer-centric approach to everything we do. We are looking forward to future opportunities throughout Europe, the Middle East and further afield in a growing transport sector.”

-Richard Brown, Managing Director.

In support of North Star's continued growth and strengthening presence in the Middle East market, the start of 2017 saw the permanent appointment of Leanne Wheeler as Operations Manager (Middle East) and Katy Polley as Operations Support Consultant. Both Leanne and Katy are supporting the continued development of the business within the region and are permanently based in our Dubai office. Leanne and Katy will build on North Star's success since the Middle East Office was established in 2014, with Richard Brown continuing as Managing Director.
