Charter Flights in the US

The Charter Flight industry exhibits a low level of market share concentration, with only one major player, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc., holding a significant market share. Industry concentration has been growing over the past five years. A large number of companies operating in the industry are nonemployers. In addition to offering passenger charter services, operators also provide cargo transportation and other air specialty services, such as surveillance, air ambulance and sightseeing.

Ownership structure explained

• Atlas Air Worldwide Hoildings Inc. operates in the industry through its charter segment, including air mobility command charter and commercial charter. Air Transport Service Group Inc. operates in the industry by transporting cargo via three independent airlines: ABX Air Inc., Capital Cargo International Airlines Inc. and Air Transportation International.

Consolidation secures larger market share

• Industry concentration has been growing due to the organic growth and merger and acquisition activities of larger companies. Most notable, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc. acquired Southern Air Holdings in 2016.

Companies compete on services
• Operators compete on their ability to get people or cargo to their specified location, on time and with a high degree of comfort and safety. Most importantly, as is the nature of the luxury service industry, companies differentiate themselves by the provision of services such as limousines, gourmet foods and drinks and other luxury extras.

Companies in this industry provide air transport services on an irregular or nonscheduled basis for passengers and cargo, also referred to as a charter arrangement. Industry operators enable people to fly where they want, in terms of destination and airport, and when they want, as opposed to commercial airlines that operate on a fixed schedule of destinations and times. This industry also includes scenic tours and sightseeing services.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
