Despite the recent economic downturn there have still been new airlines starting operations across the world during this time. The number of these carriers may have slowed a bit during the last 18 months, but there are certain signs that things are beginning to pick up.

Of course, just because the first aircraft has left the paint shop does not necessarily mean they are about to start flying passengers around, but these are a few to watch out for.
