Airline rankings: a cool infographic

We’ve just pulled together the 2009 world annual rankings for Airline Business – this is our annual listings of the top 150 airline groups by revenue and the top 200 airlines by passenger traffic. That 2009 was a bad year for the airline sector comes as little suprise, but the 11% fall in revenues (calculated in US dollars) among the top 150 airlines last year is still pretty eye-watering. Lufthansa Group remained the largest carrier by revenues in 2009 at $31 billion, closely followed by Air France-KLM and an enlarged Delta Air Lines following its merger in late 2008 with Northwest Airlines.

To illustrate how the revenues break down among the top 30 carriers, our extremely talented designer Dominic Ray has produced this rather cool graphic  – which we call the Airline Revenue Map. Click here to see it full size.


For more commentary on this year’s rankings and a look at some of the key lessons to be learned from the crisis, check out our related feature here.

To see the full rankings we published in our August issue, you could always check out the digital edition of Airline Business, which is available for free with Flightglobal’s Yodl desktop application.

Or you can access the full tables and additional data in spreadsheet format by purchasing individual datasets of our rankings here

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content
    I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    permission. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being
    stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.
