Poster’s Five Forces Analysis
New Entrants
– AirAsia’s LCC strategy sets barriers to new entrants.
Threat of Substitutes
– Moderate. Because customers prefer LCC rather than full service carriers or bus, train and ship.
– The more informed internet customers become, the more power they may have over AirAsia, especially if AirAsia is unable to maintain its low cost leadership position.
– Since AirAsia is the low cost leader, they may be able to force their suppliers to maintain or lower prices.
– AirAsia is in a guarded position against their current competitors.

Competitor Analysis
A. Thai Airways
• It operates domestic, regional and intercontinental flights.
• Its philosophy is to provide a full service to premium passengers while maintaining the highest standards of service to leisure travelers, who represent over 80% of the company’s total passenger transportation revenue.

In order to compete with AirAsia, Thai Airways has its own product extension which is Nok Air that provides low cost carrier. They also is the first airline to install hospital-grade air-filter True HEPA, that capable of intercepting up to 99.999% of dust particles and micro-organisms on every flight. Other than that, it is the first carrier in Asia to fly commercial flights using bio fuels.

B. Singapore Airlines
