@hharteveldt .@AlaskaAir introduces new “Flight Pass” subscription for #travel within #California + nonstops btwn CA & PHX/LAS/RNO. Starts at $49/mo. (plus taxes/ fees) for six trips a month. Clever idea.
@hharteveldt Very pleased to see @AlaskaAir offer a flight subscription product. Wish more #airlines did this (and, for that matter, #hotels as well). Research shows that offering subscription products can lead to greater preference/#loyalty and higher spend/subscriber. #travel #marketing.
@hharteveldt The combined Frontier-Spirit fleet is expected to grow 75% in next five years, from 321 aircraft today to 493 by year-end 2026. $SAVE $ULCC #airline #growth #travel.
@KirenRijiju This Hollongi Airport under construction will change the status of Itanagar and whole of Arunachal Pradesh once completed. It has passed many hurdles. It got one time special grant for land compensation by PM @narendramodi Ji. The target is August 2022 for the completion.
@Vinamralongani Should @AAI_Official and GMR be able to complete the Hollongi Airport (seen below) and the Mopa airport respectively as planned, India will get two brand new greenfield airports in August 2022.
