LARA is delighted to introduce LARA Global, the new global event dedicated to low-fare and regional aviation.


Having started life in 1984 as Commuter World magazine, the LARA series has consistently delivered the leading global coverage of low-fare and regional aviation. As a dedicated media portfolio for this dynamic, emerging sector, LARA helps industry professionals to track the latest industry news and developments.

The title’s rich history, expertise and experience makes LARA one of the industry’s most trusted and respected brands. In line with its 35th anniversary in 2019, the LARA team is thrilled to launch its first standalone event.


The inexorable rise of low-fare airlines is fundamentally changing commercial aviation across short-, medium- and long-haul markets. According to Allied Market Research, the global low-fare airline market valued in 2016 at US$117 billion is forecast to hit $207 billion by 2023. As a result, legacy and regional carriers are transforming how they operate to avoid being left behind in this ultra-competitive segment, with service and support partners also evolving rapidly to meet the challenge of soaring demand.

LARA Global will unite key international stakeholders in this effervescent sector, bringing the airlines, airframe manufacturers, engine suppliers, MRO facilitators, and everyone in between… together.

“Since rebranding in 2016, the LARA portfolio has achieved exceptional growth, and this event is a natural addition to our existing media coverage. It is the perfect opportunity to mark the publication’s 35th anniversary milestone, and we look forward to welcoming the industry’s biggest names to join our celebrations.”

Becky Howells, event director

The two-day conference will feature some of the sector’s most innovative thought-leaders to provide an unparalleled opportunity for networking, education and collaboration. It will also see the launch of the inaugural LARA awards, recognising the industry’s most outstanding contributions. For professionals currently working in low-fare and regional aviation, or with a vested interest in how the market is evolving, this is an event you simply cannot miss.
