The International Air Transport Association expects the global airline industry to make a net profit in 2017 of $29.8 billion on forecast total revenues of $736 billion, which represents a 4.1% net profit margin. If these predictions come true, 2017 will be the third consecutive year (and the third year in the industry's history) in which airlines will make a return on invested capital that is above the weighted average cost of capital.
So, it's not a far reach to expect that businesses related to the airline industry will also see success in both the short- and long-term.
