Taking Flight


Seeking Higher Altitude

The airline industry is a key workhorse of the world economy, contributing $2.2 trillion in economic activity in 2012 – that’s 3.5% of global GDP – by moving about 3 billion passengers and 47 million metric tons of cargo. Passenger growth is expected to continue, with nearly 4 billion people projected to take to the skies in 2017.[1] Heavier loads could mean higher profits. Combined with greater fuel efficiency and the growing demand for long-haul international services, the world’s airlines are expected to post a record $19.7 billion in net income this year.[2] North America should account for 40% of that total, in part due to the pricing power and cost savings coming from three key US mergers, including the December 2013 link-up between American and US Air that created the world’s largest carrier. Middle Eastern and Asian markets are also expected to see a boost in air traffic, driven by the demand for new low-cost carriers, deregulation and a rising middle class.[3] See More
