Air transport has undergone significant changes over the past five years, driven by a combination of technological advancements, shifting consumer preferences, and global events such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are some key trends that have emerged in air transport over the past five years, based on data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and other sources:

  1. Growing demand for air travel: Despite occasional dips in demand due to factors such as the pandemic and geopolitical tensions, air travel has continued to grow steadily over the past five years. In 2019, global passenger traffic reached 4.5 billion, up from 3.8 billion in 2016 (IATA).
  2. The emergence of low-cost carriers: Low-cost carriers (LCCs) have continued to gain market share over the past five years, with some of the biggest players such as Ryanair and Southwest Airlines experiencing significant growth. In 2019, LCCs accounted for 28% of global air traffic, up from 22% in 2014 (CAPA).
  3. Technological advancements: The past five years have seen significant technological advancements in air transport, with airlines and airports investing in everything from biometric scanning to autonomous baggage handling. According to a report by the Air Transport Action Group, the aviation industry invested $170 billion in technology in 2019 alone.
  4. Environmental concerns: The aviation industry has faced increasing pressure to address its environmental impact over the past five years, with concerns around carbon emissions and noise pollution. According to the IATA, the industry has committed to achieving carbon-neutral growth from 2020 and reducing net carbon emissions to half of 2005 levels by 2050.
  5. Impact of COVID-19: The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on air transport, with global passenger traffic dropping by 66% in 2020 compared to 2019 (IATA). While there are signs of a gradual recovery in 2021, the pandemic has highlighted the vulnerability of the aviation industry and the need for greater resilience.

In conclusion, air transport has undergone significant changes over the past five years, with growth in demand, the emergence of low-cost carriers, technological advancements, environmental concerns, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic all shaping the industry. As air transport continues to evolve, it will be important for airlines and airports to stay abreast of these trends and adapt their strategies accordingly to remain competitive and sustainable.
