What are the next challenges for low-cost airlines? Space and time comparison studies
How did the proliferation of low-cost operations influence or hinder? It is the aim of this document to analyse the evolution of the low-cost airlines internationally. It investigates and attempts to characterise the determinants that have promoted and hampered the proliferation of low-cost carriers over time.
Low-cost carrier typologies are being designed to demonstrate the variety of practice that can be seen under the general low-cost flag. However, the author of this document identifies developmental phases in relation to timing and compares the evolution of low-cost surgery in different parts of the globe. It examines the economics and policy implications of the proliferation of the low-cost modelling and considers sustainable behaviour and prospective pattern of expansion.
Japanese Airlines founds a low-cost airline to meet Asia's needs.
JAL will be located at Narita International Airport and will operate services to Asia, Europe and America, JAL said in a declaration on Monday. This undisclosed carrier is planning to take off in 2020 with two wide-bodied Boeing 787-8s. In Japan, which is predominantly served by the full-service airlines JAL and ANA Holdings Inc (9202.T) and has an ingenious high-speed net, the low-cost airlines have taken off only slowly, but with the increasing number of Asian travellers going into the skies, the two airlines want to increase their low-cost offers.
The ANA has announced that it will be launching medium-length intercontinental services, possibly to India, integrating its low-cost carriers under the Peach name. JAL, on the other hand, has only a minor shareholding in Jetstar Japan, a JV with the low-cost Jetstar of Qantas Airways Ltd (QAN.AX), which operates narrowbody jets.
And JAL said she would keep investing in Jetstar Japan. This new long-haul operator is a completely different offering than Jetstar Japan, which is "purely short," JAL's new chairman Yuji Akasaka said to journalists. Japan's Jetstar has given its consent to the train, said the president. The Jetstar Japan said in a declaration that the new company would be complimentary because it would attract more foreign tourists to Japan who would then be travelling on its home base.
"We are talking to JAL about the possibilities for Jetstar Japan and the new low-cost carriers to work together closely," Jetstar Japan said. As JAL said, it is planning to invest external investor in its new low-cost carriers, which will be a fully owned affiliate. AirAsia Japan has been launched and airlines such as Hong Kong Express and Singapore's Scoot offer services to Japan.
