September 27, 2022

The 2022 edition of the CarTrawler Yearbook of Ancillary Revenue by IdeaWorksCompany, released today, describes the 2021 ancillary revenue activities and results for 75 airlines. The gradual waning of the pandemic during 2021 – with passenger traffic improving 27.8% above 2020 – lifted ancillary revenue results for all categories of airlines, all over the world.  The pandemic has compelled airlines to become better at generating ancillary revenue. The “High Performing LCC” category includes Frontier,, Jetstar, and Volaris. The “Other LCC” category (defined as having a rate under 16%) consists of carriers such as AirBaltic, Cebu Pacific, and FlyDubai. The “Other Carrier” category has the largest number of airlines, 32 out of the 75 in the yearbook, and includes traditional carriers such as Aeromexico, Finnair, and Kenya Airways. The US Majors are: Alaska Air Group, American, Delta, Southwest, and United.

The Yearbook of Ancillary Revenue is now available for sale in the store.
