New airlines compete by identifying customers who are not well served by larger and established carriers. This is the secret to surviving as a start-up airline: find an underserved market and apply all the youthful passion and nimble moves you can muster. That’s how these 10 low cost carriers hope to flourish in a post-pandemic era: Air Premia, Akasa Air, Avelo Airlines, Breeze Airways, Flyr, LIFT, Lynx Air, Norse, PLAY, and Vietravel Airlines.
All operate as low cost carriers, as this is the prevailing model of today’s airline industry. Ancillary revenue is at the core of this movement because it honors customer choice and delivers the amazing alchemy of low fares and more revenue.
