Competition has intensified oil prices. Asian low-cost airlines have survived the difficult and fierce competition accompanied by soaring oil prices, which have brought a major impact on the fledgling Asian low-cost airlines, and their stocks have fallen. Five years ago, Asia's first low-cost airline, AirAsia, came out. Then, in India, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia, a number of similar companies emerged. They have broken the aviation monopoly in some countries and attracted a large number of passengers with fares that may even be lower than bus tickets. But for now, these first-time aviation companies feel the difficulty of survival. In the quarter ended March 31, AirAsia's AirAsia-listed AirAsia profit fell 44% due to high fuel costs and significant price cuts from competition with state-owned airline Malaysia Airlines. India's two low-cost airlines, Air Deccan and Spicejet, have also launched price wars with other emerging low-cost carriers, combined with high fuel costs and weak flight infrastructure (such as limited apron), most of which have suffered losses. The stocks of these three listed companies were hit hard.
