Content• Introduction.• Definition of low cost carrier.• Advantage and disadvantage of low cost carrier.• Two low cost airline.• Bibliography.• Conclusion.
Define low cost carrierA low-cost carrier or low-cost airline (also known as a no-frills, discount orbudget carrier or airline) is an airline that generally has lower fares and lesscomforts. To make up for revenue lost in decreased ticket prices, the airlinemay charge for extras like food, priority boarding, seat allocating, and baggageetc.
Advantage of low cost carrier It saves you precious timeThis is one advantage that many find irresistible. Time is a very preciouscommodity today, and if you can fly for just a small increase in price comparedto a train journey, then it is definitely worthwhile. It promotes great vacationsTravel costs are a major part of anyone‟s holiday plans. when you find lowcost flights to your favorite destination, this mean you have more to spend andtherefore makes your vacation better. Uno finding low cost flights to yourfavorite destination, you would be thrilled because you get to have a greatholiday. It is extremely convenientOne of the most important of the advantages of low cost flights is theconvenience of travelling. You do not need to worry anymore about long andtiresome journeys by bus, train or car. This would invariably involve countlessdays on road, living out of a suitcase and staying in uncomfortable hotels. Theflight does away with all this inconvenience.
It saves moneyMany people compare only the flight ticket cost to the gasoline bill or busticket cost (or any other form of travel you choose). the difference would stillbe quite a lot, and therefore are happy that by choosing alternativemodes of travel they are saving some money. But is it so really. The advantages of low cost flightsThe advantage of low cost flights also include the fact that you would be ableto cover more ground and therefore helps you to be more productive. Besides,flying is fun and everybody Should experience it at one time or other and thelow cost flights offer you just the right opportunity to do so.
Disadvantages of Low Cost carrier Extra payment for baggage:Travelers must realize that practically everything apart from the actual flightticket costs extra. they will need to pay extra for hold baggage, and it cost oneperson nearly £100 to transport golf clubs. There is no charge for thosetravelling with only hand luggage, but this is becoming more difficult to do,owing to so many recent restrictions on hand luggage for airline flights. The high cost of food:Food and drink will not be provided on the plane unless the traveler pays.Some passengers have complained about the high cost of meals on board theseflights. It is quite possible to take one‟s own food on the flight, but again,carrying drink may be a problem due to restrictions on liquids which can becarried in hand luggage. Specific seatWith many of these airlines one cannot book a specific seat, and checking incan resemble a rug by scrum, with everyone trying to get a good seat. It canseem more like bus travel in the rush hour than airline travel!
Changing passenger detailsChanging passenger details and/or dates can prove very expensive or evenimpossible. It is essential to read the small print before booking. Quick changes of pricesPrices can change very quickly, even going up while the passenger is bookingon-line. Costs need to be checked carefully. Passenger worrying about economic situationFinally, with the recent worrying economic situation, more airlines areexpected to go bust. Many of these will be the low cost airlines. Passengersneed to make sure that they are aware of their rights if the airline does collapseafter they have booked a holiday. No frills:Overall, no frills airlines should be treated with care. They do indeed offerbargains, But travelling with them is not the same as booking a flight with amore established airline. It‟s worth bearing in mind that sometimes passengersget exactly what they pay for - no more, no less!

Stowing the wheelchair Once the traveller has been transferred out of his or her own wheelchair, it is either stowed on board or taken to an area where it can be prepared for stowage in the baggage compartment. In this case, it is either transported in an elevator in the terminal, or carried down the exterior stairs of the loading bridge. Wet cell batteries are disconnected and removed from power wheelchairs, then placed in specially designed boxes. Wheelchairs are usually put into heavy plastic bags, specially designed for the purpose, and positioned in a cargo container.
On-board services Once in an aircraft seat, responsibility for providing service to the traveller rests with the flight attendants. They will reposition the traveller, if requested; help with eating (e.g., opening packages, cutting food, etc.), but not feeding; transfer the traveller to an on-board wheelchair, and push him or her to the lavatory; and stow and retrieve carry-on luggage.

AVIATION INDUSTRYAdvantage Disadvantage Visit many tourist place by air Spoilage. transport. Aircraft is expensive. Low cost airline. High fuel price. Job opportunity. Infrastructure of airline Modernization of airport. industry.
Visit many tourist places by air transport. Aviation provides the only worldwide transportation network, which makes it essential for global business and tourism. Air transpiration alleviates poverty and helps to improve living standards by facilitating tourism. Air transport improves quality of life by broadening people’s leisure and cultural experiences. It provides a wider choice of holiday destinations around the world and an affordable means to visit distance tourism place. Air transport contributes to sustainable development not only by facilitating tourism and trade. It generates economic growth, provides jobs, increase revenues from taxes as well as facilitates the delivery of emergency humanitarian aid relief and swift delivery of medical supplies anywhere on the earth. Thomas Cook, is the World Wide travel agency arranging tour packages to people. This is one advantage to the airline industry. Most of the airlines are flying to the tourist place like Switzerland, Goa, UK, France, Japan, Spain, Dubai, etc. Due to growth in tourism, there has been an increase in number of the international and domestic passenger. The estimated growth of domestic passenger segment is at 50% per annum and the growth for international passenger is 25% (p.a).
Low cost airline.The advantage of low cost flights also include the fact that you would be able to cover moreground and therefore helps you to be more productive. Besides, flying is fun and everybodyShould experience it at one time or other and the low cost flights offer you just the rightopportunity to do so. It saves you precious timeThis is one advantage that many find irresistible. Time is a very precious commodity today, andif you can fly for just a small increase of time compared to a train journey, then it is definitelyworthwhile. It is extremely convenientOne of the most important of the advantages of low cost flights is the convenience of travelling.you do not need to worry anymore about long and tiresome journeys by bus, train or car. Thiswould invariably involve countless days on road, living out of a suitcase and staying inuncomfortable hotels. The flight does away with all this inconvenience. It saves moneyMany people compare only the flight ticket cost to the gasoline bill or bus ticket cost (or anyother form of travel you choose). the difference would still be quite a lot, and therefore arehappy that by choosing alternative modes of travel they are saving some money. But is it soreally. Non stop servicea low cost airline, provides non-stop service from small airports to almost all Major airportsnonstop. Meal ServiceCommercial airlines offer limited refreshments, often just peanuts or a beverage on domesticflights. Budget airlines offer the same fare but for a price. With Transportation SafetyAdministration restrictions, the days of brown bagging on a flight are over.
Market share:In 2010, the private carriers accounted for around 75% share ofthe domestic aviation market.STUDENT CONCESSION FORM FOR DOMESTIC TRAVEL The ‘Form’ shall be accepted only if it is verified and attested by the Principal/Head of the Educational establishment.

This ever changing industry requires thousands of new employees monthly. Over of the year experience in the aviation sector, Airline specialists have developed sophisticated systems and models for the assessment of candidates for various positions in cabin crew, flight crew, ground crew etc, either or in various recruitment phases.

Modernization of airports The Airports Authority of India (AAI) is undertaking the development and modernization of all 35 non-metro airports in the country simultaneously and work is due to be completed by March 2010. Wholly owned subsidiaries of AAI are being created for the development and operation of these airports. According to the AAI, it has already awarded work orders for terminal buildings at 13 airports, and for airside development, including runway, taxiway, apron, fire station, control tower and isolation bay, at 19 airports. Two greenfield airports at Bangalore and Hyderabad are being developed .The first phase is planned to be finished by end-2008. The other two metro airports - Chennai, Kolkata -- may soon be on the modernization path. At least 10 non-metro airports are being developed as strategic airports serving the region or respective states, and at least a few more non-metro airports are being positioned strategically as regional hub airports or nodes providing better connectivity to overall airport network and feeding international network through hub/metro airports. With these developments in aviation infrastructure, we may also see some airports making money not purely on passenger traffic, but also by means of cargo, logistics, and real estate projects being developed adjacent to airports. Domestic passenger movement across airports is likely to grow at a 20-25 per cent till 2010, and passenger traffic is expected to increase to around 120 million by 2010. Hence modernization, privatization and development of airports in the form of greenfield and/or brownfield airports is the need of the hour.
Modernization of airport Indira Gandhi International Airport has become Indias and South Asias largest and most important aviation hub, with a current capacity of handling more than 46 million passengers and aimed at handling more than 100 million passengers by 2030. There is also a separate Technical Area for VVIP passengers. IGI Airport is the home of several Indian airlines including Air India, Air India Regional, Indian Airlines, IndiGo, JetLite, SpiceJet. Jet Airways, Kingfisher Airlines, GoAir use IGI Airport as their secondary hub. Approximately 80 airlines serve this airport. There are Six operational terminals making up this airport, they are the following: Terminal 1 Domestic This cater to Indian Airlines domestic flights only. bigger luggage reclaim area, It is currently used by GoAir, IndiGo, SpiceJet Terminal 2 -immigration and emigration counters have been implemented, new seats have been brought in, new baggage belts, more business lounges, eateries, and duty free shops had also been added Terminal 3-the world’s eighth largest passenger terminal handle 34 million passengers annually. This terminal has 168 check-in counters, 78 aerobridges at 48 contact stands, 30 parking bays, 72 immigration counters, 15 X-ray screening areas, for less waiting times, duty-free shops, and other features. Over 90% of passengers will use this terminal.
SpoilageCABIN SPOILAGE Loss of revenue occurring due to passengers No-Show or cancel late on full flights.DISCOUNT SPOILAGE Loss of revenue resulting from turning away discount customers because discount seats were not available at the time of booking, subsequently the flight departs with a significant number of empty seats.HIGHER YIELD SPILL The loss of revenue resulting from turning away late high yield demand because too many lower yield seats were sold early.DIFFERENTIAL PRICING An airline seat can be viewed by a purchaser as a single commodity, the desire is to purchase at the lowest price.
Aircraft is expensive Expensive aircrafts Gulfstream G550: $59.9 million Boeing business jet: $55.5 million Bombardier Global Express XRS: $47.7 million Gulfstream V-SP: $45 million Assault Falcon 7X: $41 million Most expensive aircraft in the world is airbus a380. At an investment of $13 billion, this double-decker aircraft took more than seven years. The Airbus A380 have become the most expensive airline tickets in the world. While the world’s largest passenger plane is readied for its inaugural flight, Singapore Airlines are making a killing by selling tickets on eBay. Sold to an Australian man for over $100,000 USD The aircrafts like airbus, Boeing. Now a days aircrafts are coming with various facilities and service. Lots of people can travel in one aircraft. But problem with the aircraft is too expensive. So aviation industry facing monetary problem.

High fuel price Rising fuel costs hit airlines hard. Fuel expenses are expected to total $61.2 billion this year, compared to $41.2 billion in 2007, according to the Air Transport Association. A few years ago, fuel was 20 percent of an airlines cost. Its now up to 70 percent for carriers. Its utilizes a lot of resources to do its thing fuel, rubber, metal, etc hence getting too expensive. As fuel price have climbed, the inverse relationship between fuel prices and airline stock price has been demonstrated moreover, the rising fuel price have led to increase in the air fares. Airlines will eventually charge fees for other luxuries and perks, like window seats, aisle seats, seats in exit rows and snacks. Airlines may reduce the frequency of flights in the routes severely impairing India’s well developed airline network. As destinations begin to lose connectivity, passengers will either respond by reducing their frequency of air travel or choose to travel by train or buses It is like running several airlines non-stop 24/7. Generally Airlines too are a 24-hour business. The airline industry is under extreme pressure If they keep raising their fees to passengers then the passenger per plane ratios drop off, meaning flight are unprofitable.
InfrastructureThe Outlook The aviation industry in India is improving everyday. The future is bright enough as per the experts worldwide. Heres am outlook about India aviation industry, the looking crisis, and the global response. With the global economic recovery on the horizon, the aviation industry in India is poised for a spectacular takeoff. Unprecedented changes are anticipated in the aviation sector as the domestic passenger segment is expected to register annual growth rates of over 50% . Even the international passenger segment is slated to grow at 25% annually as per industry forecastsThe looming crisis the current situation in the industry continues to alarm policy makers, regulators and industry leaders alike. Adding to the woes of the industry is the abysmal airport infrastructure visible in the acute shortage of parking bays, takeoff / landing slots& air traffic control facilities Shortage of pilots, engineering, all department staffs, The recent hike in the price of Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF) has further added to the anguish of the airlines as it has the potential to take the industry on a downward spiral that can prove fatal. The industry has embarked on a cost-cutting spree and that too with a vengeance.
