To assist policymakers in having the full picture on the contribution different airline business models bring to air connectivity, IATA Economics analyzed the extent of the connectivity provided by Low-Cost Carriers (LCCs) and network carriers in Europe through the study of how Airline Business Models meet Demand in Europe, which was launched at the start of the conference in Istanbul. The report shows that they offer different and complimentary types of connectivity, while also competing on many popular routes.
