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.

“I am pleased to say that demand for North Star’s specialist rail operations expertise in the UK, Europe and internationally continues to grow.
