So what were the most significant airline events of the last 25 years?

Airline Business is celebrating its 25th anniversary this month with a special issue of the magazine and supporting online package. You can see all the content, including perspectives and reflections from 25 airline executives who helped shape the industry over the last quarter century, at our special 25th ANNIVERSARY HOME PAGE.

To mark the occasion we got our thinking caps on to try and plot some of the key events that have shaped the industry over the last 25 years and pull together a four page pullout for the magazine and a scrollable interactive online version.

You can see our INTERACTIVE 25 YEAR TIMELINE HERE - follow the high and lows (mostly lows) of the airline industry profit line over the last quarter century by scrolling over the screen; hover over the large circles to bring up more on key significant events, then click on the icon for more details and background information.

Trying to fit the last 25 years into a four page timeline was taxing to say the least and only scratched the surface of what has been an incredible period for the sector. So you can read even more here with:

  • Our special BIRTHS, DEATHS AND MARRIAGES feature: a look at the big name comings and goings of the airline industry over the last 25 years;
  • Our 25 YEAR TIMELINE IN TEXT: Read more on the key events that shaped the last quarter century of the industry
