Technavio’s research analyst predicts the full-service carrier (FSC) market to grow at a CAGR of approximately 3% between 2016 and 2020. Over the last few years, the global air passenger traffic has been increasing tremendously, especially in emerging countries such as APAC, the Middle East, and South America, which is an important growth driver for the FSC market. In the next 20 years, the global air passenger traffic has been estimated to increase at an annual average of approximately 5%, wherein FSCs account for the significant market share of this traffic.
The majority of FSCs cater to the passenger services segment, offering services like meals and in-flight entertainment as part of the cost of the flight ticket. They also provide additional or ancillary services as add-ons at an extra cost. These airlines primarily operate in a hub-and-spoke structure, with central airports serving as hubs. In 2014, FSCs comprised approximately 70% of global air passenger seat capacity. FSCs also provide cargo services to utilize fully their available capacity and expand their market size.
