Against the backdrop of the War in Ukraine, inflationary pressure and increased flight prices, airlines is set to continue to see retail value sales rise strongly through the forecast period. At constant 2022 prices, airlines’ retail value sales are predicted to exceed the 2019 pre-pandemic level in 2026.
In light of rising unit prices, Bulgarian travellers are set to continue to look for lower-priced flights through low cost carriers, while availing themselves of their ranges of ancillary services. Some scheduled airlines have already adjusted their pricing strategies to be able to compete with low cost carriers, with others set to do so during the forecast period.

Airlines covers sales made to country residents (outbound and domestic tourists) and excludes sales to incoming tourists. Please note that airlines sales made to country residents when they are travelling abroad or through foreign websites or apps are also included and will be considered under the country of residence. The total amount paid for a flight after taxes and other charges is included. The return flight leg is included as well as the total amount paid for a flight ticket. Value sales exclude all forms of transit. Euromonitor International considers airline capacity and passengers carried in terms of enplanement based on scheduled flights. A passenger whose flight stops mid-route to pick up more passengers but continues with the same aircraft/flight number would be counted as one enplanement. A passenger who switches flights to another airline or aircraft with a new flight number mid-journey would be considered as two enplanements. Enplanements are not the same as number of seats sold or seat bookings, as the latter both include all bookings and do not exclude no-shows and cancellations. Direct transit passengers are excluded, eg those who continue on the same flight. Other transit passengers are included where passengers change plane with a new flight number. Air passengers carried relate directly to air value sales, where domestic and outbound travellers are only included. As such value and volume data in both sizes and shares is aligned and exclude the inbound component.See All of Our Definitions
