Middle East. Growth of Middle Eastern aviation outpaced the global average and will continue to do so, supported by a variety of growth strategies.

Fleet expansion is the predominant strategy, with Emirates as the foremost practitioner. Alliances and partnerships also contribute, as with the 2012 Emirates-Qantas codeshare agreement, or Qatar Airways' pending membership in the oneworld alliance. Low-cost carriers tend to pursue growth through business model innovation: reducing short-haul fares, setting up national subsidiaries, and opening new avenues of access to air transport services.

Other strategies include the purchase of equity shares in other airlines. For example, Etihad invested in airberlin and Jet Airways, in order to grow quickly and gain access to new markets without fleet expansion. Further support for growth could come from liberalization of industry regulations. The opportunity to relax price controls on domestic KSA flights remains, though it has not been adopted as a policy goal. The Airport Industry online, the latest airport industry news.
