Frankfurt am Main, August 31, 2021. The COVID-19 crisis, which has been persisting for more than a year, is leading to profound changes in the aviation industry as well as among airlines. Even though air traffic will recover regionally and globally after the pandemic, airlines will still have to deal with the economic and structural consequences and make plans for the future. In this context, the Board of Airline Representatives in Germany (BARIG) is specifically expanding its cross-industry network of business partners. With Mazars, an expert with extensive industry know-how is now available to the more than 100 national and international BARIG airlines flying to Germany.
“These extraordinary and challenging times for the aviation industry and the entire world require profound and innovative measures to reshape the future. New concepts and structures must be thought through and designed to be implementable,” BARIG General Secretary Michael Hoppe states. “Therefore, we are delighted to welcome Mazars as another BARIG business partner in the section of ‘Academic & Consulting.’ The company has excellent local and international expertise in assisting companies in future-oriented processes. Together with Mazars we will be planning a series of informative online sessions and talks for our BARIG members in the upcoming weeks and months.”
