Executive Summary
Overview Low cost traveling started in Singapore in 2004. Since then the industry has grown rapidly and namely Airlines like Tiger Airways, Jetstar Asia Airways and AirAsia has been able to prosper due to their competitive prices. However, all might not be as rosy in the aviation industry. Escalating fuel costs, debt troubles in Europe and natural disasters threaten the industry’s profitability. With oil prices sky rocketing to over $100 a barrel, and expecting to remain high over the next five years, elevated oil prices will keep the airfare prices high. According to Jeff Knittel, the 2012 outlook for the global aviation sector is dependent on the overall global economical growth. Despite these headwinds, there is still hope at the end of the tunnel. Rising disposable income, tourism promotions and low-cost airlines will assist the industry’s revenue growth for the next five years. Task/Target Market Scoot, having recently entered the industry via the support of its parent company, Singapore Airline, is vying for a place within the industry front runners. With its maiden flight set to depart in June 2012, Scoot has thus tasked us to promote its flights for the June holidays, during the April - May period, in hope to promote trial and infuse brand switching amongst those in Singapore, who lead a conventional family life, and seek to give better to do their families daily.. Competitiveness A common trend between its competitors; however, is the very closely watched price war between each other. Due to the competitive nature of the industry, every move a competitor takes in differentiating itself is a positive maneuver in gaining a leverage in profit share. Conclusion Thus, this Advertising plan aims to give insight into the current low cost carrier industry, by giving Scoot an edge over its three competitors. Furthermore, the proposed campaign aims to build a brand image of understanding and resonance with Scoot’s target market in Singapore to employ Scoot as the Airline that accommodates their needs.
