Increasing Number Low-Cost Carrier Fleet to Provide Growth Opportunities for In Flight Catering Service Market During 2022–2028

In the global aviation industry, low cost carriers are gaining immense importance. The robust business models with respect to ticketing, airport services, on-board services, and others are facilitating the low cost carriers to attract passengers from all classes of society. The carriers, especially in developing regions across the world, are continuously enhancing their facilities and services for every class, including economy, premium economy, and business class. The peer low cost carriers across the world compete among themselves on the basis of food & beverage quality, catering service, and price. The passengers across the world are increasingly inclining toward hygienic food at an affordable price, which is driving the trend of in-flight catering services in low cost carriers. The surging passenger traffic in low cost carriers is pressurizing the LCCs to partner with top-class hotels and chefs to offer hygienic food and beverages to their passengers. Additionally, several low cost carriers are introducing long haul flights, which is also facilitating the airlines to introduce better quality food. The global aviation sector is experiencing cost pressure, which is leading several full service airlines to drop in-flight catering services on their short haul and medium haul flights owing to the high price of catering. As a result, low cost carriers are reporting high passenger count. Therefore, the demand for in-flight catering services on short haul and medium haul flights of low cost carriers is impressive. Owing to all these factors, the global in flight catering service market will witness steep growth through low cost carriers in the coming years. 

The COVID-19 outbreak led to the temporary closure of all domestic and international air routes owing to government regulations on flights to combat the spread of the virus infection. Only emergency flights were operational to bring residents from different countries to their homeland. The decrease in the number of air passengers negatively impacted the aviation sector and the additional services market during the pandemic. These factors declined the in flight catering service market growth in 2020. However, with the normalization of flight routes in 2021, the aerospace industry started to receive demand for airlines, which helped the revival of the in flight catering service market.
