Travelers set to gain as Qantas Airways and Virgin Australia engage into fierce turf war

The increasing fierce turf war between the two leading Aussie carriers Qantas Airways and Virgin Australia has come as a boon for the executive and leisure travelers.

Airfares for Virgin Australia and Qantas Airways flights are set to become even cheaper in the coming days.

Recently both the carriers have also announced capacity expansions of around 10 percent until December 31, 2012. The announcement means low fares at highly competitive rates in the days ahead.

Gareth Evans, Chief Financial Officer of Qantas Airways, said that the key to domestic profitability of the airline continues to be a market share of 65 percent. He said that that currently a lot of capacity is being added on to by the airline’s competitors in the market place and the airline will make its best effort to hold on to the profit-maximizing point of the present 65 percent market share.

Australian travel experts said that the business class fares for domestic destinations are around 20 percent cheaper in the month of August this year than they were in a benchmark year of 2003. Apart from this, the restricted Economy Class fares are more than 30 percent cheaper.
