Airlines Domestic Bubble performing well
The Solomon Airlines “Iumi Tugeda Holiday” initiative has positive results with an increased number of domestic travelers since its launching in February this year.
Solomon Airlines Commercial Manager Collin Sigimanu said during the airline’s chairman media briefing yesterday.
‘Today we’ve carried a total of 24 passengers with a total of ninety nights stay, the packages sold covers the three different packages available smaller resorts around the country are also picking up which is a positive sign for us,” Mr. Sigimanu said.
Mr. Sigimanu said the company is managing its revenue collections despite losses that might occur due to the cheap “Iumi Tugeda Holiday” packages pricing.
“Through the yield control in revenue management we are able to control the seats we sell onboard each flight it’s not the entire plane that sells the discount seats only a certain number of seats,” he said.
Meanwhile, State-Owned Enterprise’s newly appointed Chairman Frank Wickham said the SOE is doing fairly well under the current Covid-19 travel restrictions compared to other air carriers in the Pacific region.
Mr. Wickham acknowledges the government support to the airline as its sole shareholder in keeping the airline operating through the tough times.
