Altair Advisory

Altair Advisory is a specialist aviation strategy and sustainability consultancy. The firm provides Board-level and C-level advisory services to global aviation stakeholders including airports, airlines, trade associations, policymakers and other stakeholders. Patrick Edmond, the founder and principal, is a frequent media commentator on aviation-related topics.

Key Strengths

At Altair Advisory, we distinguish ourselves through our hands-on experience of developing successful strategies for airlines and airports. Unlike generalist consultancies who are unfamiliar with the specificities of the industry, we bring multiple decades of experience in the sector, gained across airlines, airports, leasing companies and specialist aviation advisors.

Aviation sustainability is an increasingly important aspect of our work. The aviation industry is hard to decarbonise and is arguably not universally motivated to do so, despite the seriousness of the climate crisis and aviation’s growing contribution to emissions. Our work in this sector includes modelling the emissions effects of different policy scenarios, advising trade associations on sustainability strategy, conducting Sustainable Aviation Fuel production feasibility studies, and providing policy and strategy advice to an electric aircraft OEM and a SAF fund.
