The biggest movers in the overall World Top 50 list include Turkish Airlines, which jumped seven places to rank 15th globally, while Indonesian carrier Lion Air vaulted eight places to enter the global Top 40 for the first time. Iberia and India's Jet Airways fell four and seven places in the 2012 rankings, respectively.

Southwest still the world's biggest LCC, but VuelingIndiGo and Lion the fastest growing

Southwest Airlines remains the world's biggest LCC and has widened the gap to second placed Ryanair thanks to the latter's marked reduction in capacity this winter. Adding in AirTran's capacity would push Southwest even further ahead. The Top Five LCC rankings remain unchanged, but big moves have occurred further down the list. India's IndiGo and US-based Spirit continue to rise up the board, while AirAsia X has dropped back as it redirected capacity from long-haul European sectors to shorter Asian routes. Europe's Vueling has grown a remarkable 40% measured in ASKs, with IndiGo and Lion Air each expanding 35%. Top 25 LCCs worldwide by capacity (ASKs per week): Dec-2012 vs Dec-2011

The big get bigger, as the Top 50 airlines double the total growth rate, as capacity is added cautiously

Overall, the world's airlines are adding capacity cautiously, reflecting weak global economic conditions. According to Innovata, overall seating capacity is up approximately 3.2% year-on-year, with the number of flights rising just 0.4% and ASKs rising about 3%. The Top 50 carriers are, as a group, adding capacity at more than twice the rate of the industry combined. Worldwide capacity: Dec-2011 vs Dec-2012*

Global airline alliances strike back, growing faster than world average. SkyTeam expands fastest

Members of the world's global alliances are expanding capacity ahead of the global average, allowing the groupings to claw back share from the LCCs and unaligned carriers. According to Innovata, LCCs currently have a 22.3% share of global capacity (seats). This is partly due to the addition of new members, but that does not account for the full expansion. SkyTeam has grown its market share at a greater rate on all measures than the still much bigger Star Alliance.

Atlanta Airport still the world's biggest – just! – as Beijing closes rapidly

Atlanta has seen out 2012 as the world's busiest airport, but it looks set to lose that title to Beijing Capital Airport in 2013. Singapore Changi Airport has entered the Top 10 by seats per week, helped in no small part by the growth in LCC operations. 30% of all airline seats in Singaporeare on LCCs, with Tiger Airways, Jetstar and AirAsia three of the five biggest. The airport this week has announced it registered more than 50 million passenger movements for the year, just two years after crossing the 40-million milestone in 2010. Dubai Airport meanwhile has surged into fifth place on the world rankings as measured by total seats this week.
