Budget Airlines Worldwide - International - December 2013

This report provides an overview and update about the current state of the low-cost or budget airline sector worldwide. The report is structured along geographical lines, since most of the route networks of low-cost carriers (LCCs) are domestic and intra-regional.

Demographic trends and the outlook for economic growth, as well as the LCC business model and current issues in the market, are examined in the report’s first section, which is followed by a detailed analysis of the LCC landscape in the major regions of the world (Africa, Europe, Latin America, North America, North Asia, Oceania, South Asia and Southeast Asia).

The profiles of individual budget airlines have been dispersed by region, rather than being grouped in one section. This is a logical structure given that the route networks of most LCCs is strictly national or regional.
