    The UK aviation industry market is oligopolistic with both legacy airline carriers like British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, and Air France operating at the higher end of the market and low-end airline carriers like Ryan Air and Norwegian Air operating at the lowest end of the market. One of the biggest issues that is changing the nature of competition in the UK airline industry is the introduction of no-frills packages by legacy premium carriers such as British Airways as they attempt to reposition themselves to curtail the challenges of competing with lost cost carriers. This has the airline industry less attractive and competitive behaviour drives the service towards commoditization and low profit margins. Using Michael Porter’s five forces analysis framework, this report examines the UK airline industry and EasyJet to understand the major points at which EasyJet is affected by the five forces.

    1.0 INTRODUCTION


    In March 1995, businessman Stelios Haji-Loannou founded Easy Jet airlines. The aircraft used during the first year of the company’s operation was leased by British Airways. In 1996, the company bought the first of its own planes (Dortmund-airport, 2020). Over the years, the airline has expanded its operations in Europe.

    Using Michael Porter’s five forces analysis framework, this report examines the UK airline industry and EasyJet to understand the major points at which EasyJet is affected by the five forces.
