Aviation assignment made by Heena Rana

  1. 1. LOW COST AIRLINES INTRODUCTION: >>A low-cost carrier or low-cost airline (also known as nofrills, discount or budget carrier or airline) is an airline that offers generally low fares in exchange for eliminating many traditional passenger services. >>The concept originated in the United States before spreading to Europe in the early 1990s and subsequently to much of the rest of the world. >>The term originated within the airline industry referring to airlines with a lower operating cost structure than their competitors. >>While the term is often applied to any carrier with low ticket prices and limited services, regardless of their operating models, low-cost carriers should not be confused with regional airlines that operate short flights without service, or with full-service airlines offering some reduced fares. LIST OF LOW COST AIRLINES: Kingfisher airline Jetlite Indigo Spice Jet
  2. 2. KINGFISHER AIRLINE: >>Kingfisher Red, known formerly as Simplifly Deccan and prior to that as Air Deccan, is a low-cost airline run by Kingfisher Airlines. >> It is headquartered in Bangalore, India. >>Kingfisher Red is currently the only Indian low-cost airline to provide complimentary in-flight meals and bottled water to its passengers. >>Also, passengers can earn frequent flyer miles (called King Miles) for tickets booked on Kingfisher Red through the King Club loyalty program run by its parent Kingfisher Airlines. >>In-flight reading material is limited to a special edition of Cine Blitz magazine printed exclusively for Kingfisher Red.

R. Gopinath and its first flight took off on 23 August 2003 from Hyderabad to Vijaywada. >>It was known popularly as the common man's airline, with is logo showing two palms joined together to signify a bird flying. >>The tagline of the airline was "Simpli-fly," signifying that it was now possible for the common man to fly. >>The dream of Captain Gopinath was to enable "every Indian to fly at least once in his/her lifetime."
  4. 4. >>Air Deccan was the first airline in India to fly to second tier cities like Hubballi, Mangalore, Madurai and Visakhapatnam from metropolitan areas like Bangalore and Chennai. >>On 25 January 2006, Deccan went public by filing a red herring prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Board of India. >>Deccan planned to offload 25 percent of its stake in the initial public offering (IPO) that opened on May 18. >> However, due to the stock market downturn at that time, Air Deccan's IPO barely managed to scrape through, even after extending the issue closing date and reducing the price band.  Rebranding >>In October 2007, post the acquisition by Kingfisher Airlines, Air Deccan was renamed to Simplifly Deccan with its new tagline being "The choice is simple." >>The old logo was replaced by the Kingfisher logo and the same font of Kingfisher Airlines was also used on Simplifly Deccan. >>The old yellow and blue colors of Air Deccan were replaced by Kingfisher Airlines's red and white, supposedly to give the same premium look and feel to Deccan as well. >>The check-in counters at airports as well as the crew uniforms now had the same red and white colors as those for Kingfisher Airlines. >>The new look airline also promised excellent on-time performance, a wider network and " little delights all the way." >>Check-in staff would no longer be outsourced, but managed by the airline's own employees, thereby

Venkaiah Naidu, the then Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, and Telugu Desam Party leader K. Yerran Naidu.
