Peach – A Revolution
Peach by the Nippon Airways was the first to be flown in the air at low costs promoting tourism. The great brains behind this air bird say that the introduction and operation of this flight saw an enormous increase in the number of passengers and the readings of 2015 came out with an astonishing number of 4.5 million travelers. There can be no other award or reward to the entire team who have their hands behind this and is expected to continue the same to see more in future.
Peach is a Japanese brand and the engineers of this, believe that Japan is one of the best attractions in the whole of Asia and so the launch of such low-cost carriers will help many interested and eager people to visit this place, in turn enhancing and developing Japan tourism. It is also looked upon as a landmark in Japanese history wherein the rapidly developing technology plays a major role in taking Japan’s name and fame to the travelers abroad.
Air Asia- Pioneer In Low-Cost Carriers
Even before the introduction of Peach by the Japanese, Air Asia first introduced the low-cost carriers looking at the potentiality and affordability of the travelers from all around Asia. It first took to the air with a slogan `now everyone can fly` meaning, the rates are very cheap and can fit in anybody`s pockets. This first had its test run in Malaysia where it was very successful and resulted in a marvelous increase to the revenue department of the Aviation sector and also brought in huge profits to the tourism department. Following this victory, these low-cost carriers slowly started taking the runways of all the countries and today they are seen in almost all the airports.
A survey was done to estimate the earnings through such carriers and it was calculated that nearly 50-60% of the Asian travel was through such flights and the maximum was from the Northern part of Asia. The traditional and regular transporters have also ventured into this sector and have successfully brought in one or more of their regular services into this spectrum. Some of the low-cost carriers that have had a great impact on the tourism of South-East Asia are:
- Lion Air(Indonesia)
- Cebu Pacific(Philippines)
- Nok Air (Thailand)
These are some of the few that are considered to have brought a great and dramatic change in the phase of tourism and Aviation.
Impact Of Low-Cost Carriers On Online Booking Agencies
With the introduction of these low budget yet comfortable flights, the number of people who take the air route for all reasons has gone high. This has come as good news for online ticket booking agencies with more and more inquiries and business. They say that a reduction in the air ticket costs have encouraged many people to travel abroad fulfilling their life- long dreams. A research was conducted amongst all these agencies to rank the most visited places. Astonishingly the first spot to top the list was Thailand, as always been. Now, what is the role of travel agencies here in welcoming so many visitors to this place? Let`s take a look.
- The first and foremost requisite would be reaching these many numbers on time, speak to them, get to know their requirements and estimate their expectations.
- The next would be to establish tie-ups with as many numbers of hotels and airways as possible so that they are ready with options whenever there is an interested tourist on the other side of the call.
- The next thing would be to target those tourists who are planning to visit the nearby places and allure them with the beauty and pleasures in Thailand so that they can deviate and extend their tour planner to visit the place before taking a flight back to their hometown.
With such a detailed working of the booking agencies, the aviation and tourism department is expected to see more and more passengers in the days to come.
