Airline Companies Preparing For "Takeoff"

The aviation industry supports more than 65 million jobs around the world and $2.7 trillion in world economic activity (3.6% of global gross domestic product). By 2036, it is expected that aviation will generate $5.7 trillion in GDP and the number of air travelers is expected to grow to 8.2 billion from 4.4 billion air travelers in 2018. It is clear the importance of aviation in the tourism industry, which is one of the world’s largest industries, but it also provides an immeasurable contribution to global trade, business, and economic development.

Between 2009 and 2017, revenue in the global aviation industry grew at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of around 5.9%, reaching $754 billion in 2017. Pre COVID-19, Commercial airlines were expected to generate a combined revenue of $872 billion for 2020.

In early April, worldwide flights were down almost 80%, making the COVID-19 the worst impact in the airline industry. Approximately $50 billion of international passenger revenue was lost from Jan to Apr 2020. According to ICAO, airlines may be faced with 1.5 billion fewer international air travelers this year.
