If you were to create an airline....

Tue Sep 12, 2017 5:38 am

If you were to create an airline, what would you do to make it stand out? What would be your business model? So many have been eaten up by large airlines; the current economic climate makes it almost impossible to stand alone in the airline industry.

An African ULCC. Being Namibian, I would love it to be a southern African ULCC, connecting South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Angola, Mozambique, and maybe Madagascar and Mauritius.

I would start a long haul ULCC. There are a couple of long haul LCCs already, but no ULCCs so far.

Of course there would be an in-flight entertainment system, which mostly displays commercials but can be used for the buy-on-board program and (for a fee) movies and games. Meals have to be booked in advance and are being charged for. I'd mostly fly out of cheaper secondary airports and avoid the expensive big ones. I'd be making long haul travel affordable for everyone.
