Airline Weekly subscribers now get access to our first airline research report on the Skift Research website. This is now available to both Skift Research and Airline Weekly subscribers. 

Skift Research’s latest report presents its 2023-2024 U.S. passenger airline market estimates. Our proprietary estimates aim to provide benchmark data for key metrics of the passenger airline sector. They are based on our analysis of multiple sources, including the Department of Transportation, the Census Bureau, and individual company securities filings.

Other estimates presented in this report include industry revenue, passenger demand, and yields. They also include operating statistics such as passenger demand (measured by revenue per available seat miles, RASM), aircraft seat capacity (measured by available seat miles, ASMs), and unit revenues (measured by passenger revenue per available seat mile, PRASM).

We also discuss some important macroeconomic factors that can hinder the industry’s current rapid expansion. Beyond economic uncertainty, capacity restrictions with labor and supply chain challenges can become severe problems for years to come, despite the industry’s revival and strong pent-up demand.

This report is free for Airline Weekly and Skift Research subscribers. 

Thank you for being a loyal Airline Weekly subscriber. We’re always looking for ways to improve the subscriber experience and expand on your membership perks.
