Skywise is the first domestic airline to announce that it has already started absorbing industry regulated admin costs into its fares.
This follows ASATA’s release on 10 February 2015 of a survey that aimed to assist members appreciate the value of the charge.
This progress is in keeping with our “Less Is More” attitude, which means passengers have just one cost instead of having to go through a list of costs to get the total. It’s also in line with our saying “what you see, is what you get”, which affords our passengers to only pay the price they see.
“As a new airline there is need to keep transforming our services to be competitive. What a better way with this approach that addresses not just the issue of complex costs in the industry but also compliance”, says J. Malik and Tabassum Qadir, Skywise Co-Chairpersons.
Marketwise, Skywise’s simplified approach is expected to bring it good results. Solely considering that figures that are usually complex are now basic for the market.
The new costing system is even more of a sales incentive and Skywise hopes to attract more support and sales through its channels. Channels have been making quite a lot of inquiries of late, particularly at the World Travel Market Africa 2015, hosted in Cape Town between 15 and 17 April.
