The Low-Cost Carrier Worldwide provides a holistic look at the operation of low-cost carriers (LCCs) in the worldwide air traffic market by bringing experts from different regions together in a volume edited by Sven Gross and Michael Lück. Eighteen authors, either academics or practitioners, with various fields of specialization analyzed the development of LCCs in regional markets in terms of historical background, current trends, and best practices. Examples of best practices for each region are good sources for lesson drawing for future planning.
