Analyst Perspective:

The key players operating in the airline ancillary services market are witnessing increased demand for services such as entertainment, Wi-Fi, and catering. The growing number of aviation passengers across the world significantly drives the airline ancillary services market. Ancillary revenues are critical to the airline business model; for instance, in developed markets such as North America and Europe, airline companies including Ryanair, Spirit, and Allegiance have recognized ancillary revenues contributing significantly to their total revenues. The trend was soon adopted by rapidly developing economies in Asia Pacific, where carriers such as Air Asia experienced that one-fifth of their revenue comes from ancillary services. Thus, this trend is anticipated to significantly influence airline carrier revenues, particularly in developing economies, which would further contribute to the airline ancillary services market growth.

Airline Ancillary Services Market Overview:

The airline ancillary services market is benefitted from the willingness of the passengers to pay for services that add value to their experience. Seat upgrades, pre-booking of seats, and baggage are a few of the popular ancillary services in demand. Several startups are entering the market to cater to these evolving needs. Further, low-cost carriers are gaining immense importance in the global aviation industry. The robust business models for ticketing, airport services, onboard services, and others facilitate low-cost carriers to attract passengers from all classes of society. The rising demand from passengers for additional services such as inflight food and beverages service, Wi-Fi, and retail is expected to offer several opportunities to startups. Apart from the aforementioned ancillary services, the in-flight entertainment (IFE) service is expected to impact the airline ancillary service industry substantially. As digitally cultured customers, particularly business travelers, anticipate their carriers to facilitate in-flight connectivity options. It was also found that most passengers on a short-haul route demand web access while onboarding to access their digital devices. Thus, the rising demand for IFE is expected to enhance ancillary revenues, positively influencing the airline ancillary services market growth.

Airline Ancillary Services Market Driver:

Rising Preference of Air Travel by Middle-Income Passengers

As per the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the number of passengers traveling by air is expected to reach ~7.8 billion by 2036. The rapidly emerging middle-class segment can be associated with a rise in the number of air passengers in developing economies. In October 2021, world organizations such as United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the International Civil Aviation Organization partnered to support a resurgence in travel and tourism. In October 2020, UNWTO and IATA inked a Memorandum of Understanding to work together to support the resumption of global tourism. The main focus of this agreement was enhancing the confidence of the general public in air travel, which further helped increase air traffic. According to the United Nations, the growing number of middle-class travelers, especially in China and India, is the primary factor contributing to the growth of air travel and various ancillary services. As the world recovers from economic contractions, the demand for air travel increases. The rising air travel demand has resulted in the augmented production of s, which has considerably contributed to the demand for ancillary services such as in-flight Wi-Fi, excess luggage, food and beverages, and in-flight shopping.
