    La aviación comercial tal como se ha conocido tradicionalmente, está experimentando un cambio evolutivo hacia nuevos modelos de gestión. El mercado, dominado por aquellas empresas capaces de reducir los costes operativos y en consecuencia los precios ofrecidos a los clientes, está evolucionando hacia un nuevo modelo de compañía aérea. Los axiomas que persiguen a estas aerolíneas y que habían sido totalmente justificados hasta no hace muchos años, en la actualidad empiezan a diluirse y con ellos, las diferencias existentes entre las compañías de Bandera (tradicionales) y las que ofrecen servicios a costes muy reducidos. El presente artículo persigue fotografiar el mercado actual de las aerolíneas y desmontar los mitos existentes. Commercial aviation as has been traditionally known, is undergoing an evolutionary change to new management models. The market, dominated by companies that reduce operating costs and therefore prices offered to customers, is moving towards a new model of airline. Axioms chasing these airlines and had been fully justified until a few years ago, now begin to fade and with them the differences between flag carriers (traditional) and others providing services to very low cost. This article attempts to photograph the current market for airlines and remove the myths in the management of low cost carriers as well as warning of the impact of such changes in airport infrastructure.
