United Airlines consolidated with Continental Airlines in 2010, after which the airline’s international operations have grown significantly. In addition, the legacy carrier continued to strengthen its domestic operations over the last five years. Consequently, the airline’s revenues have grown more than 60% between 2010 to 2015. On the EBITDA front, the Chicago-based airline benefited from the sharp drop in crude oil prices over the last 20 months. Its fuel costs declined notably, leading to a remarkable jump in its EBITDA over the last two years. Overall, United’s EBITDA more than doubled over the last five years.
