The invention of the wheel is the development that creates the phenomenon of traveling. However, the invention and development of the aircraft and making it available for transportation have made the world a much smaller place. Then, the emergence of commercial airline companies and affordable price options have given people the freedom to reach wherever they can imagine.

While the largest airlines in the world are growing their fleets day by day, they have increased the number of destinations they have traveled one by one, and an airline network has reached almost every city in the world. This expansion also increased expenses and caused many airlines to stop their operations. However, the biggest airlines, which have established solid foundations in terms of financial and infrastructure, continued to exist and offer their unique services both in the air and on the ground.

Among the biggest airlines in the world, there are airlines that are known for their luxurious services, as well as those that offer services at affordable prices. But it is possible to say that the common points of all of them are customer satisfaction. Because if they did not achieve this in an industry where competition is so fierce, they would still not be able to continue their operations.

Being one of the biggest airlines in the world requires adding brand new aircraft models to their fleets and ensuring that passengers always travel in the most comfortable and secure way. This triggers aircraft manufacturers, another major part of the aviation industry, to launch new models on the market and to increase their production to meet demand. This enables the aviation industry to strengthen itself with its internal dynamics.

Airlines that make every country and city in the world more accessible are the essential elements that create the modern world. We brought together some of the biggest airlines in the world and listed them for you. Imagine where you want to go and get your ticket, let the airline do the rest.
