March 2018In the March issue of Airliner World, we hear how a vibrant domestic market and rapidly growing international traffic is driving Vietnam Airlines to become a major force in Southeast Asia. We also find out how US budget carrier Allegiant Air has found its niche serving smaller regional airports, and we profile the wave of ultra-low-cost operators attempting to break the Air Canada/West Jet duopoly and conquer the Canadian market. <br><br>Elsewhere in this edition, we shine the spotlight on the small heavyweight, Hahn Air, which operates just three small business jets on twice-weekly scheduled services, yet it sold more than 30 million tickets last year. <br><br>We also chronicle the history of the venerable Tupolev Tu-154 – in many ways the definitive Soviet airliner – and we learn how bmi regional is preparing for a looming global pilot shortage. <br><br>Lastly, we bring you our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including details of the first US order for ATR’s -600 series, Boeing secures type certification for the 787-10 and Emirates commits to acquire more Airbus A380, plus China Airlines returns to London and Italian carrier Neos welcomes its first Dreamliner into service.
