Low cost carriers in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region: Emergence and barriers to development
Saeid Joshan and
Journal of Transport Geography, 2020, vol. 87, issue C
This paper investigates the development of low cost carriers (LCCs) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region from a broader perspective. We use passenger volume data at the airline and flight segment levels to illustrate the development of LCCs in the region; we conduct a structured comparison of the actual business model characteristics of the MENA-based LCCs to assess their adherence to the archetypical LCC business model; and we compile the key barriers to LCC growth in MENA from the literature.
