Flying Off Course : Airline Economics and Marketing Paperback / softback


Aviation is one of the most widely talked about industries in the global economy and yet airlines continue to present an enigma.

Between 2010 and 2018 the global airline industry experienced its longest period of sustained profitability; however, huge global profits hid a darker side.

Many airlines made inadequate profits or serious losses while others collapsed entirely.

This fifth edition of Flying Off Course explains why. Written by leading industry expert, Rigas Doganis, this book is an indispensable guide to the inner workings of this exciting industry.

Providing a complete, practical introduction to the fundamentals of airline economics and marketing, it explores the structure of the market, the nature of airline costs, issues around pricing and demand, and the latest developments in e-commerce.

Vibrant examples are drawn from passenger, charter and freight airlines to provide a dynamic view of the entire industry.

This completely updated edition also explores the sweeping changes that have affected airlines in recent years.

It includes much new material on airline alliances, long-haul low-cost airlines, new pricing policies and ancillary revenues in order to present a compelling account of the current state of the airline industry. Offering a practical approach and peppered with real examples, this book will be valuable to anyone new to the airline industry as well as those wishing to gain a wider insight into its operations and economics.

For undergraduate or postgraduate students in transport studies, tourism and business the book provides a unique insider's view into the workings of this exciting industry.
