List of Publicly Traded Airlines Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges

While every company in this category is an airline, there is a wide difference in the number of daily flights and the number of destinations served. Major airlines such as American Airlines Group, Delta and United can have anywhere from 7,000 to 15,000 daily flights and serve over 300 destination or more if you count partnerships. These major airlines also have a global reach with destinations in countries worldwide.

There are also several regional airlines that focus on specific regions of North America. These airlines focus on targeted destinations in their selected region in order to maximize operational efficiency. It is very common for these companies to have a few hundred daily flights and serve in the range of approximately 100 destinations. Examples of these companies include Alaska Air Group and Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.

Investors may not immediately recognize the airline by the name of the listed company as many of the listed airlines in this category are holding companies. For example, American Airlines Group is the holding company for American Airlines and US Airways and United Continental Holdings is the holding company for United Air Lines.
