The operational and product features related to low cost strategies are discussed before the paper evaluates low cost airports for low cost airlines. The impact that low cost airlines have on the industry are assessed, and the paper then looks at consolidation and implementation issues. Competition in the industry is discussed and the financial performance of Ryanair, British Airways, and the Lufthansa Group are all examined. Social benefits and tourism related aspects concerning low cost airlines are evaluated before conclusions are made.
