Robert Bailey, CEO of Abacus International commented that LCCs are also reaching out more to the corporate sector. "While the low-cost market in Asia has yet to fully embrace corporate travel distribution, some budget carriers are now clearing a path to the corporate accounts, recognising the scale of the opportunity with trade partners, particularly on routes where low-cost competition is beginning to crowd out," he said.
