Airline Ancillary Revenue Reaches $27.1 Billion — More Than Doubling the 2009 Number

The new 2013 CarTrawler Yearbook of Ancillary Revenue by IdeaWorksCompany, now available free online, provides the most detailed global assessment of a bottom-line-booster that can represent more than 38 percent of a carrier’s revenue.  The full 80-page report examines 53 airlines that disclosed revenue during 2012 from activities such as frequent flier miles sold to partners, fees for checked bags, and commissions from car rentals.  The complete alphabetical list of carriers is provided in the press release in a carrier-by-carrier table, followed by a graph of ancillary revenue expressed as a percent of total revenue.
