Spring Airlines, the country’s first discount airline company, offered its customers airline tickets for only one yuan (13 US cents/ 0,10 € ). The airline company’s maiden flight from Guangzhou to Shanghai was on Thursday, representing the completion of its ‘golden triangle’ flight layout between Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, China’s major regional flight centres.
With ticket prices significantly lower than state-owned airlines, Spring Airlines has gotten the attention of travelers who don’t normally fly. Passengers on yesterday’s flight paid as low as 299 yuan for a ticket, 30 percent of the normal price.
