Sepp Mörtl - Pink Sparrow

The studied grammar school teacher Sepp Mörtl has a very special relationship to life. And this not only because of his accident. He does everything with full commitment, huge joy and never ending enthusiasm. Together with his wife Regina, he manages an airline company of a specific type - Pink Sparrow is specialized in the transport of donor organs. In addition to that - and not less exceptional - he transports radioactive examination materials for hospitals. And both must be transported to its destination as fast as possible.

Even people with matters of great urgency are transported to challenging destinations and unusual times of the day. The Pink-Sparrow-Crews are available and ready to fly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

And after being successful and becoming a First Officer, the young pilots are ready to get their OBERHOFER pilot uniform. But to come back to family again: Jörg Oberhofer, experienced pilot and CEO of AeronautX is the brother of Hannes Oberhofer. Both are not only born in the same family but also in the same branche. And in any way both brothers have always been and will always stay strongly connected with aviation - no matter how challenging times are.

65 years

Many many years ago - in the typical founding period, characterized by the incomparable atmosphere of departure and hope for a better future - this company was first opened on 1st September 1955. Although we remained faithful to the textile industry, nearly everything changed within the last 65 years. We evolved from the small rural fashion shop for casual customers to a uniform provider in the airline and corporate fashion sector who serves leading clients. We changed from a retail store to an industrial production - and from local customers to international clients. Only one thing stayed unchanged: passion for what we do.

company history = phone history

Starting in 1955 - our year of establishment - with an "official dialplate phone. At that time telephony was regimented governmental! In early 1980ies the first key-operated telephone launched - a kind of status symbol, but still analog!
And then there was the ultimative digital phone from Porsche design called Bosch Integral, with undreamt-of technical possibilities. Today we are calling "voice over IP" with internet phones via fibre optic and our own 3CX phone server at minimum costs. Unbelievable how times change!

The "new normal" part III - less is more

There will be fewer/smaller airplanes, less employees and reorganized route networks. None of the BCG-experts scenarios expects to reach a before COVID-19-level. Sustainability will play a major role in tourism - more than ever before. Business travelers will come back to travel anyway, because video confernces cannot solve all problems. But trourists maybe think twice before entering an aircraft.

The branche will change. If the time of "fast aviation" is over? Time will tell. But maybe we should get used to less is more!

The "new normal" part II - new megatrends

BCG-Experts agree on the fact that the impact of COVID-19 on the airline branche will be more severe than 9/11 and financial crisis put together. Current short-term measures either provide a quick rebound nor a guarantee for economical survival. Besides structural changes and rising health consciousness the authors also see new megatrends in "... more locally oriented supply chains, and a focus on sustainability."

Sounds good for our environment and local, sustainable producing suppliers. Due to that reason passengers may have to dig a little deeper into their pockets in future.

Aviation's "new normal"

In March 2020 BCG published "The Post-Covid-19 Flight Plan for Airlines" sketched our "new normal" in which nothing will ever be the same again. Some of their forecasts - like the curve shape of the more or less enlongated U-shape expressing the rebound of the industry - cover with real flight data collected on FlightRadar24 from Jannuary to June 2020 (blue curve on the picture). There can be recognized a slow rebound. But the next months will show if the "U" turns out to be a "L".

COVID-19 - first silver linings on the horizon

COVID-19 hit our whole economy like no one couldn't have ever imagined. And the aviation sector was impacted even harder than other branches of economy. With this lock-down the world changed - and so does aviation. But: Even after a survived Corona-crisis airplanes will take off and airports will (sooner or later) come back to general duty again.
Maybe flying will be more expensive in the future? Maybe the environmental pollution will play a major role? But: The demand to get from one point to another will always exist - no matter if the reason is daily business or going on holiday. Video calls only are not the overall solution.

Stormy times

The aviation sector is not known for being crisis-proof. It's quite the opposite: The impact of the worldwide Corona crisis makes its presence felt. But it is not only the aviation itself - also the suppliers are concerned. But to face it realistic - it is a crisis like many crises before - we will weather this difficult times - as always - and we will come out of the crisis strengthened.

We hope for all that the storm becomes quite until summer. But what will stay - even afterwards - is the awareness, that we need to strengthen EUROPE.

Uniforms and Corporate Fashion MADE IN EUROPE

The current interruptions in our global economy - especially in textile industry - are a consequence of the massive outsourcing to Asia and China. We decided to consciously buck the trend - we always sweared on production within the EU.All our used fabrics and materials are made in EUROPE.
It has always been our concern to procure and manufacture our materials as near as possible: We are proud and more than ever convinced to produce within the EU only: In Austria and our adjoining EU-countries!
