I was tipped off about the Air Asia, the Malasian carrier and its launch in Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) from the newspapers last week. What actually caught my attention and what stood apart from the already loss making airline launches in India was the fact that they are the first carrier to abolish the fuel surcharge and the administration fee.
If you have been a air traveller for long you will notice the immediate difference in fare it will set forth. Hold on to your seats while I tell you the rates to travel from Cochin to Malay – RM 129, which converts to just 1800 Indian Rupees!
Air Asias’ current prices are just an introductory offer and is expected to go up from July 2010. While this news is a bit stale, I was able to sneak a video from the depth of YouTube archives which will possibly explain how fares can be this low.
Do watch the video and let me know your comments and do not forget to visit their site for more information on ticket rates!
