Current research has noted that there has been an increase in the demand for low-cost aviation services which is coupled by a rise in the demand for passengers travels on different routes globally (Gerardi & Shapiro, 2009). Also, the number of airlines operating in different lines have increased leading to intense competition. For instance, in the USA alone, there are more than 100,000 airlines which operates in different states (Prince & Simon, 2009). The increased number of airlines operating in the various States in the USA have intensified the level of competition leading to a significant reduction of profits accrued by the airlines. Currently, the companies offering the support services for the airlines are still far much expensive hence having a direct impact on their long-term sustainability in the market. It is at this juncture that Meton Skies Aviation company comes in handy to bridge the gap between an aviation service delivery, profitability and increasing its competitiveness and value in the aviation industry. The company has majored in the areas of aircraft maintenance, part sales, renovation services, sales, and mobile services.
