Second tier LCCs playing major role in reshaping European aviation (Part 1)


European LCCs, led by Ryanair, easyJet and Air Berlin, commanded 32% of intra-Europe capacity (seats) in 2009, representing spectacular growth from just 4.6% less than 10 years ago in 2001 and a 20.2% share in 2005. But the 'big three' are just part of the story.
