|Strategies of low cost airlines in emerging countries: The cases of Brazil and India [Paperback]|

Emerging economies, as main drivers of future economic growth, are attractive territories to be explored by low cost airlines.
|Looking Beyond the Runway|
The global airline industry, facing significant changes and discontinuity is prompted and forced to deal with a 'new normal'. Who would have imagined a few years ago that: a significant percentage of consumers in the US now prefer to fly low-cost airlines instead of full-service airlines because they perceive the product to be better, airlines would generate up to a third of their total income from non-ticket revenue, many low-cost airlines would add complexity to their original simple business models through the development of code-share agreements, the use of global distribution systems, and travel agents to distribute their seats, or Jetstar, a low-cost subsidiary of Qantas, would grow faster and be more profitable than its parent.
