Key Highlights
- The increase in the global proportion of internet users from 2011 to 2021 has been substantial, spurring the growth of the low-cost evolution. According to Macroeconomic Database, the global proportion of internet users in 2011 stood at (xx), by 2021 this figure increased to (xx). With the internet constantly becoming more accessible across the globe, more travelers can utilize cheap and direct booking channels when self-packaging a low-cost trip, as well as price comparison sites to ensure the all-inclusive package they are purchasing from a tour operator is the lowest it possibly can be.
- When looking at the LCC market, through dynamic pricing, rates change in real time based on a constant stream of data. Pricing can be informed by customer booking patterns, competitor prices, and even macroeconomic and geopolitical factors. To maximize revenue, airlines need to sell as many seats as possible for the highest price. To ensure that that prices are not so high that it deters budget travelers, LCCs need to understand current market demand and the spending behaviors of their customers. Dynamic pricing helps to achieve this. In the LCC market, this pricing model allows for increased competition, which can result in low prices if demand for a particular route is low, and airlines react by dropping their prices to stimulate demand.
- With it seeming that Millennials and Gen Z have taken the brunt of the pandemic across the globe, travelers in these cohorts that are still able to go on domestic and international trips will be looking for low cost options. It is imperative for low cost brands to be active on social media to drive engagement with younger audiences, and to convince them to part with their savings that could be in short supply. According to Q1 2021 Consumer Survey, (xx) of global respondents consider the ability to engage directly with a brand as an ‘essential’ or ‘key driver’ of purchase. Direct engagement with a brand acting as a key driver rises to (xx) for Gen Z and (xx) for Millennials. Ryanair is a leader in this space. The airline currently has 1.6 million followers on TikTok, which allows the company to already be in the minds of its next generation of customers. It has gained a mass following on various platforms because it capitalizes on viral content, such as memes that are entertaining and relatable.
