Pest Analysis On British Airways.

Extracts from this document...


PEST ANALYSIS ON BRITISH AIRWAYS The four different environments are often referred to as PEST and allow a PEST analysis to be conducted this allows the organisation to review and consider the environment in which it operates. The PEST factor that has contributed to the airlines industry for many years, but has brought a drastic change was from the disaster on September 11th 2001. Political environment concerns the role of the government and its affects in an organisation it also includes the extent to which the government intervenes in the economy.

This has proved to be a success as recently a man was caught at the airport with weapons at Heathrow Airport in his luggage. There also have been reports that security has been upped in all major London airports if there is going to be a war against terrorism with Iraq. This is seen as a long term effect, as no matter how quickly things go back to "normal" airports are not going to be taking the chance to see a repeat of the incident in New York.
