Will Skies Still be Friendly When 3 Billion Travel?

Will Skies Still be Friendly When 3 Billion Travel? (Bloomberg)

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), airlines will post a record $19.7 billion in net income in 2014. This projection is almost 20 percent higher than the $16.4 billion that IATA projected just last September. The increase stems from a wave of consolidation within the industry and the fact that the World Trade Organization (WTO) has made enormous strides during the past year to smooth commerce between nations. The net effect of these events has been staggering, pushing the total number of airline passengers expected next year over three billion. So, for the airlines still standing today, and the investors backing them, the coming year looks like it’ll see airlines stocks soar.
