In a meeting held in Zagreb on May 14th 2019, AvioRadar President, Nenad Sredojević and Project Manager Bruno Habus met with representatives of ch-aviation, notably the firm’s CEO Thomas Jaeger and COO, Sanja Pleš. The meeting resulted in an ongoing partnership agreement being signed on May 28th 2019.

The aviation industry is rapidly changing, and audiences always want to be kept up-to-date with the latest news, insights and information. This strategic partnership will help ensure that AvioRadar readers obtain the most relevant and current aviation news and industry data available. As a result of the partnership, readers of AvioRadar will now benefit from more detailed airline fleet data and the most recent regional route network updates which will include information on new and terminated routes, planned operation periods and carriers.

“We are delighted to enter into a partnership with AvioRadar,” ch-aviation CEO, Thomas Jaeger says. “Serving a global clientele, we are pleased to be able to work with companies based in Croatia, where we have strong links and a twenty strong workforce employed in data research and sales roles. I strongly believe our industry-leading data will be extremely beneficial for AvioRadar journalists preparing local coverage of aviation news.”

Dear ch-aviation subscribers & friends,

a fantastic year 2017 is coming to an end. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your outstanding support over the last 19 years. You’ve heard right, ch-aviation is turning twenty in 2018. Never would I have expected, when starting ch-aviation in 1998 in the “computer room” of my high school (the only computer with a internet connection in my life was there at the time) that ch-aviation would once reach 1.6 million people per year all over the world.

While it all started as a sporadically published newsletter that featured airline industry news, over the last 5 years ch-aviation has evolved to become one of the largest and most trusted airline industry data providers in the civil aviation world. We are now serving all main aircraft manufacturers, the largest airports, leasing companies, banks, technical suppliers and many other of the most reputable aviation companies in the world with our data. Even when you do profane things like checking in from a mobile app or looking for airline schedules, it is very likely that at least parts of the data needed for these operations are produced, curated and most importantly quality assured by us.

And it does not stop there, we have a fully lined up development pipeline for 2018 currently in production. Stay tuned for aircraft hours and cycles forecasts, a very sophisticated live alert center on industry events, advanced schedule and capacity reporting and a game changing charter aircraft search tool, just to name a few examples.

If you would like to join us on our journey to become the Bloomberg of aviation please let us know! We are currently hiring for a Director of Sales for the Airports and Travel Technology target markets, a Business Analyst and a QA Engineer, just drop us an E-Mail at and we fill you in to all the details.

Thank you very much

Thomas Jaeger

Chief Executive Officer

ch-aviation CEO Thomas Jaeger had a chat with Peter Glade, Commercial Director of Sun Express. Read our exclusive interview to find out about the Turkish carrier’s challenges, how it works with its ‘brothers and sisters’, and what it perceives as its strengths.

Learn about SunExpress on ch-aviation:

Let’s start with a look at the history, Peter. The past two years were quite challenging for SunExpress. In general, how has SunExpress dealt with touristic developments in Turkey so far? And how have your other core markets, for example Egypt, been affected?

If we take a look back to 2015, we had 76% less touristic arrivals in Hurghada, 36% less touristic arrivals in Antalya – those are our two core markets if we’re talking about touristic development. SunExpress has been extremely successful in converting that into only 8% less passengers. Read more
