Budget airlines take to the skies

Font Size:

With more travellers mindful of the rising cost of air travel, budget airlines are becoming more appealing. Australian travellers will soon have two new low-cost options when booking their next trip.

AirAustralia, previously known as Strategic Airlines, is rebadging and offering flights from Brisbane to Honolulu from $499, with more routes planned by the end of the year.

Singapore Airlines has also announced its new low-cost airline, Scoot, which will fly between Singapore and Australia, commencing next year.

Are the days of the full service airline numbered? Would you be happy to fly with a budget airline?
