Report Overview

Skift Research will release its first report on the aviation sector this year, focusing on a unique problem that has kept low-cost carriers from entering the long-haul market. While the low-cost business model has been successful on short and medium haul routes, the higher costs associated with long haul flights means that the low-cost advantage is significantly reduced. This has kept successful LCCs like Southwest, RyanAir and easyJet away from long-haul operations.

The report examines the challenges faced by the long haul low-cost airlines and the changing favourable conditions that may prove pivotal to its future success.
