Consumer Choice Restricted By Budget Airline Model07.10.2009
People who take ferries to destinations such as France, are avoiding the aviation market that suffers from limited consumer choice, according to one expert who said budget airlines are restricting competition.
Industry affairs manager for the Air Transport Users Council, James Fremantle said that big airlines such as British Airways are being forced to follow the lead of budget flyers like Ryanair just to be able to compete.
He said: "I think consumer choice is being restricted, particularly in the European market."
The expert added that travellers should consider all the available options to them before booking with any company.
In other news, British Airway"s recent Traffic and Capacity Statistics showed that its total number of passengers in September 2009 was 2,923,000, down from 2,973,000 in 2008.
