The last decade or so has seen major changes in the European airline industry. As regulation has loosened, the number of carriers active across the continent has greatly increased. In a marketplace previously dominated by a relatively small number of national flag carriers, many new operators have sprung up. Newly independent countries all have their own airlines, and a complete new sector has been added to the marketplace with the phenomenal rise, and occasional falls, of budget airlines across the continent. This book reflects these many changes. It provides a photographic record of primarily passenger-carrying airlines from 32 different European countries.
