LCC business model
In the airline industry, ancillary revenue is a major financial constituent for low-cost carriers and ultra-low-cost carriers all over the world. Unbundled sources, such as baggage fees or on-board activities like food or Wi-Fi, represented the highest share of revenue for low cost airlines like Ryanair in Europe or Spirit Airlines in the U.S. in 2020. The success of this business model can not only be seen in the airline’s profitability but also in the increasing demand for this type of service in the aviation industry. As low-cost carriers continue to increase their market share in the air transportation sector, passengers are more inclined to choose what they want to pay for when flying.
