Abstract: The global aviation industry is in the process of profound change. One reason for this change is the development of Low Cost Carriers (LCCs). While the low-cost market in some regions has resulted in market consolidation, other regional markets are still in the stage of market expansion.This presentation will provide a brief overview of the historical development of LCCs in different regions of the world (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Middle East). Important suppliers and the demand of low cost flights are discussed, as well as regional characteristics relating to LCC markets around the world.
