LCCs In Africa & The Middle East: Lessons To Be Shared And Learnt

CAPA
  • On May 8, 2019

While LCCs in both regions are facing very different issues, bringing them together will truly identify important lessons and hopefully drive future growth in both regions.

Africa is an extremely challenging market for any LCC or new start-up. However, a long list of airline failures has not dissuaded more start-ups from entering the market. Nigeria’s Green Africa Airways is the latest to seek to break the logjam, well funded and with strong credentials.

Flydubai remained the biggest LCC in the Middle East and was also again the number five airline overall, but its growth was only a low single digit percentage in 2018 and its capacity has remained virtually unchanged since 2016.

  • Is the rise of the LCC in the Middle East sustainable?
  • Is Africa ready for more LCCs?
  • Can the pan-African LCC model (eg, fastjet) succeed?
