Worlds first dedicated LCC industry website launched:


(Singapore: 23 January 2007) was officially launched today at

the 4th Annual Low Cost Airlines Congress 2007 in Singapore, providing the

global LCC industry with daily news and sector analysis.

Powered by the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation's extensive information and data service resources and backed by its expertise as a world leader in LCC trends, is the world's first dedicated LCC industry website.

Just as the Centre was the first to bring the LCC Congress to Asia in 2004, we are again first to deliver this much-needed resource for the global LCC industry. Independent and unbiased, the Centre is renowned for publishing a wide range of articles and statistics on the LCC sector. This website will quickly become the industry benchmark, said Executive Chairman, Peter Harbison.

Highlights of include: * News by region and by category, including traffic, financials, ownership and acquisitions, routes and bases and much more; * Carrier profiles, including latest operating details and carrier outlooks; * A host of free resources and background on the LCC sector.

Every week, the Centre publishes the subscription report, Peanuts! The Low Cost Airline Weekly, which provides comprehensive global LCC news and analysis. Now in its fourth year, Peanuts! is the only B2B management report on the LCC sector, and is the perfect companion to the information freely available on the website.

The name peanuts refers to the famous free inflight offering of the grandfather of the LCC movement, Southwest Airlines.
