Airline stocks have been on a roller coaster ride in recent years, buffeted by a series of challenges ranging from global lockdowns, and higher fuel prices to political instability. Nevertheless, the industry has shown resilience in the face of these difficulties, and many investors believe that now could be a good time to invest in airline stocks.

One key reason for this optimism is due to the growing demand for air travel and the increasing number of people who can afford to fly. Air travel is becoming more accessible to a wider range of people, and as the economy improves, more people are able to take advantage of this convenient and affordable form of transportation. This is expected to continue in the years ahead, providing a tailwind for airline stocks.

So, although there may be turbulence along the way, long-term investors could be rewarded for placing their faith in the airline industry. If this has you interested in investing in the airline sector, here are three top airline stocks to watch in the stock market today.
