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.

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 Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) took significant steps in 2012 toward opening its markets.
