    World Airline Rankings: Regional picture :)

    After the lows of 2008 and 2009, airlines were ready to ride an up curve. But the extent and pace at which fortunes recovered could hardly have been anticipated. Revenues and profits among the 150 biggest carriers in 2010 by turnover did not just return. They reached record highs.

    Combined revenues for the 150 biggest airlines in the latest Airline Business World Airline Rankings reached $588 billion. This is a jump of $78 billion on 2009 the largest yearly improvement since the rankings began. It means airline revenues among the largest operators have rebounded beyond the previous high of 2008 and more than recovered the 11% slump in revenues seen in 2009.
