    MACRO ENVIRONMENTDEMOGRAPHICS - Kingfisher Airlines is a five star airline service and thus targets the upper class people. Thus income, social class and occupation are the factors that affect the company’s marketing strategies.ECONOMIC – factors which had affected KFA’s market are launch of new LCC, like go air & spice jet. Jet airways acquisition with air Sahara which would make Jet Airways India's largest airline with an almost 45% market . There were also other challenges which affected the airline industry as a whole, like high aviation turbine fuel (ATF) prices and congestion problems at high traffic airports like Mumbai and Delhi. NATURAL-involves the natural resources needed by the company as inputs. Environment concerns have grown steadily in past few years. Since airline needs fuel which is a natural resource, so it could be a serious problem in future economic growth of the company.TECHNOLOGICAL-advances in technology affects market in many ways. Various developments in IT system are used for the maintenance of aircraft. Due to advanced technologies new designs of aircrafts are being proposed which are more efficient in performance. 
    K I N G F I S H E R A I R L I N E S
  • CULTURAL- As a company, its important to understand what is going on in social and cultural environment, as customer’s perceptions and behaviors are constantly changing. sometimes brands are used as a means of self expression, customers buy product and services that connects with them easily.POLITICAL - The Indian Government, as part of its "open skies” policy, ended the monopoly of IAC and AI in the air transport services by repealing the Air Corporations Act of 1953 and replacing it with the Air Corporations (Transfer of Undertaking and Repeal) Act, 1994. Private operators were allowed to provide air transport services. Foreign direct investment (FDI) of up to 49 percent equity stake and NRI (Non Resident Indian) investment of up to 100 percent equity stake were permitted through the automatic FDI route in the domestic air transport services sector. However, no foreign airline could directly or indirectly hold equity in a domestic airline company

  • PRICING STRATEGIES
    Mallya made it clear that KFA would not be positioned as a low cost carrier as passengers would attribute the features of low cost carriers like low quality of service, delayed flight timings, etc., to KFA as well. Hence, the airline was called a budget airline and not an LCC. Fares were above those of LCCs but lower than the economy class fares of Jet, Sahara, and IA. KFA also allowed multiple fare options and auctioning of tickets on all traffic routes.
    Kingfisher follows a dynamic fare policy and the fare levels fluctuate depending on the number of bookings made / anticipated on a particular flight.It is their commitment to Guests that at any given point of time the lowest available fare at that time would be made available on all booking mediums.
