The Wright brothers build the first plane in 1903 and their invention caused a new industry to take flight. Airlines are an essential part of the economy, as they provide humans and goods with quick easy transportation. Because they are a main cog in industry, airline stocks have become extremely prosperous, especially in the past decade. As technology advances, so too will the stock with colossal companies such as Boeing (NYSE:BA), Delta (NYSE:DAL), and Southwest (NYSE:LUV) soaring ahead.

International airline stocks are also gaining interest, as China is derestricting airspace for commercial use. Though volatile, airline stocks should be ones to watch in the near future if the economy experiences an updraft.
