Case Discussion: Low cost airlines and impacts on national carriers (Thai
Airways International)
Thai low-cost carriers to see growth of 15-18% to 23-24 million passengers in
2013. By 2015, people travelling on budget airlines may account for about 35%

than Thai Airways, just as SilkAir is a lower cost operator
than SIA.
