Supportive Factors for the Airlines Industry

During a recent webcast titled “Your One-Way Ticket to Investing in Major Airlines,” U.S. Global Investors CEO Frank Holmes and ETF Trends editor Tom Lydon discussed various factors that could impact the airlines industry in coming months. At the time of the webcast, the airlines industry was expected to have $33.8 billion in net profits globally in 2018, with ancillary revenue counting for 10 percent of total revenue. By partnering with credit card companies, carriers have also established loyalty programs to create another source of revenue.
