Long haul low cost growth in a decade reaches 900%

1 March, 2018

The CAPA Global LCC Summit 2018 is currently being held in Singapore and has brought together some of the biggest names in aviation. For this week’s Blue Swan Infographic, we thought we would take a look at the increasingly growing low cost carrier (LCC) market, and especially those airlines focused on long haul low cost (LHLCC). LCCs are still a young force but they have massively disrupted air travel and the way airlines think about serving the public. Essentially LCCs operate point to point – because that is the cheapest, simplest way to operate however it is impossible to link all city pairs, so there will always be a need to link via one or more hub. In the last 10 years, LHLCC routes have grown by 415%, and international seats by 900%.

Want to hear more about the growing LCC market around the world? Join us at the CAPA Low Cost Long Haul Summit 2018 on the 4th & 5th October in Seville, Spain. To register visit the CAPA Events website.
