Restricted by their current business models and the underlying information technology infrastructure, transport companies are seeking ways to take advantage of the market's potential. For the past 30 years each transport sector has undergone infrastructure changes in terms of privatization and deregulation. This has created an increasingly dynamic marketplace and presented opportunities for success. The air transport industry, although primarily focused on safety, is still affected by the cost constraints imposed as a result of European deregulation in the early 1990s.
