Report Overview

Once a hotbed of regional conflicts, the Middle East has steadily evolved into a center of regional cooperation and one that allows conducive business growth. The aviation industry in the region, one that has historically been a pillar of growth for countries in the region, has not only developed into a core contributor to their economy in terms of employment but has also helped draw tourists and business to the region.

Skift Research’s latest report looks into the recent developments in the Middle East and how they will impact regional aviation.

We examine internal developments like the growth of carriers, improving geopolitics between former adversaries, and how new tourism strategies from each country in the region are focusing on more inbound travel. We also go in-depth on the growth of the aviation sectors in some significant Asia Pacific markets like India, and how Saudi Arabia’s ambitious plans to invest heavily in its aviation industry can be a cause of concern for Middle East carriers. We discuss the core strengths of Middle Eastern megahubs as global transport hubs of the world.
