For those of you unclear as to what ancillary revenue is, here’s a handy explanation:
Revenue beyond the sale of tickets that is generated by direct sales to passengers, or indirectly as part of the travel experience. We can further define ancillary revenue using these categories:
- a la carte features,
- commission-based products,
- frequent flyer activities,
- miscellaneous sources such as advertising, and
- the a la carte components associated with a fare or product bundle.
