Bhanu Choudhrie on the State of Aviation Industry during and Post the Covid-19 Pandemic
One of the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs is their ability to respond and adapt to changes efficiently. Only entrepreneurs who acknowledge the transition and design better ways to run their businesses can survive the challenges of the pandemic. Bhanu Choudhrie shares some eye-opening insights on the state of air transport two years after the emergence of the Coronavirus pandemic. Bhanu is a London-based Indian entrepreneur with a vast understanding of different business concepts. He is the son of Sudhir Choudhrie, the prominent Asian-British investor.
Bhanu Choudhrie has been the Executive Director of C&C Alpha Group since 2001. He has played a significant role in making it one of the best in the world today. Bhanu, his brother, and highly skilled experts run the organization. C&C Alpha Group is a reputable private equity firm offering incredible consultancy services to different companies. They guide various organizations on the best ways to invest and grow their businesses. He holds a bachelor’s degree in International Business and Marketing from the University of Boston, USA.
Apart from C&C Alpha Group, Bhanu Choudhrie founded the Alpha Aviation Group. The company uses innovative solutions that significantly simplify pilot training. He recognizes that the aviation and hospitality industries were the most affected during the pandemic. Bhanu says that commercial airlines grounded their planes, leading to huge losses. After some time into the pandemic, the flights began to resume but not to maximum capacity because the airlines reduced the number of trips due to a sharp drop in the demand for air transport and adherence to various containment measures.
Bhanu Choudhrie notes that governments intervened by supporting airline companies financially. However, he suggests that the financial assistance should have targeted both the giant and small-scale players in the air transport sector for better results. With the help of Alpha Aviation Group, Bhanu employs innovative solutions such as simulators to make pilot training more accessible to different airlines. Simulator training also minimizes the training time, making the whole process incredibly cheap. Bhanu Choudhrie has pointed out that most commercial airline pilots are old-aged and likely to retire soon. As a result, he sees the demand going up in the future.
