Business class on a low budget airline?

[UPDATE 11 October 2012: Oasis has stopped operations in 9 April 2008]

This October 2006, there will be a new no-frills airline flying the sky: Oasis Air. Based in Hong Kong, their edge among the other low cost carriers in Asia is that they offering long-haul inter-continental flights.

From Hong Kong, they will be flying initially to the London-Gatwick airport. Other destinations include Germany (Berlin and Cologne), Italy (Milan) and the United States (Chicago, San Fransisco).

As for their fares, their website states:

You can expect year-round fares 30-50% lower than those currently offered by other airlines to the destinations we serve. And some of our promotional fares will be even lower! For example, one-way fares in Economy class start at £75 or HK$1,000 (excluding taxes and charges) and include warm meals and inflight entertainment. And our Business class fares will also be very competitive — so remember to check back often!

Oh believe me, I will.

    Prices aren’t bad! Hopefully, they’ll be able to extend their flights to more destinations, esp. in the US & Europe.

    I’m surprised they didn’t do Frankfurt or Munich for destinations in Germany. I understand Berlin, but I wouldn’t have expected Cologne.

    With them coming up with this service, I’m expecting a couple more Asian low-cost carriers following suit. This competition really is benefiting us travellers. In the Philippines, domestic travel has risen due to the seat sales on local airlines, same with travel within SouthEast Asia.

    I can’t wait for 2008! :D
