Recorded at CAPA Airline Leader Summit Americas 2024, 9-10 May 2024

Alliances and joint ventures – where and how will the lines shift in 2024?

2022 and 2023 saw some dramatic shifts in the airline competitive landscape. The Northeast Alliance between JetBlue and American Airlines was dissolved following a court judgment, and JetBlue's proposed take-over of Spirit Airlines is also at the mercy of the legal system.

At the same time, Alaska Air Group has started an acquisition merger with Hawaiian Airlines, while Air Transat and Porter are working to build scale through a new partnership and WestJet has finished its merger with its Swoop ULCC unit and is in the process of folding Sunwing into its operations over 2024.

What will the competitive landscape of the market in North America look like in 2024?
