Is it Really Cheaper Risk of Cheap Flights?

Low Cost Transportation (LCC) services have oblique stereotypes for some people. The problem lies in the fact that the risk of flying becomes a scourge. Is it true that cheap flights have a correlation with the quality of flight safety?

Let's start with the fact that LCC airlines, like Adam Air in 2007, AirAsia at the end of 2014, have seen a decline in business in Indonesia in recent years, until the last case, namely the fall of Lion Air JT610.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has stated that the aircraft bearing the registration number PK-LQP was last reported captured at coordinates 05 46.15 S - 107 07:16 E.

The aircraft had taken off at 6 10 WIB and was scheduled to arrive at Pangkalpinang at 0710 WIB. The plane had requested the return to the base ("return to the air base") before disappearing from the radar.

According to the press release issued by the Public Relations section of the General Directorate of Civil Aviation, the Lion Air aircraft carried 181 passengers (179 adults, 1 child and 2 babies) and 7 flight crews (2 pilots and 5 FAs).


The issue of passenger safety is often debated about the emergence of low cost flights in the LCC. Lion Air has been recognized as an airline that wants to sell cheap tickets.

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has stated that the presence of low-cost airlines has an important role to play in stimulating exceptionally rapid growth in passenger numbers.

In 2015, the low-cost network carried 984 million passengers, representing 28% of the total 3.5 billion passengers carried at that time. This number has increased by 10% over the previous year. The airline Southwest Airlines, based in Dallas, Texas, is one of the airlines that exploded through LCC.

According to ICAO, three recipes make the popularity of the LCC. First, the growth of the LCC is in line with the liberalization of the market. Secondly, LCC is able to identify the needs of passengers and offer suitable products (low price, excellent service). Third, when the aerospace industry is faced with an increase in terrorist attacks, LCC continues to adhere to its operating principle of reducing costs for consumers and maximizing flight efficiency.

According to Deutsche Welle's article "Cheap Flights to Indonesia" (2007), the rise of low-cost airlines in Indonesia began with the opening of the deregulation of commercial airlines by the government in 2001. This policy allows airlines to run an airline even if they have only one plane and a poor capital. The airline benefited from this situation when the rules concerning the lower tariff limit were canceled.

As a result, ticket prices are becoming cheaper and new names have appeared in the aviation industry, such as Air Lion, Adam Air, AirAsia, Citilink, Jatayu, Kartika Airlines, Sriwijaya, Indonesia Airlines, Star Air and Batavia Air.

Various strategies are taken to reach the target.

Still citing the Deutsche Welle report, Adam Air, for example, set the lowest prices for less attractive flights for passengers and sold more expensive tickets for busy routes. This policy is conducted through cross-subsidies to reduce ticket prices. In addition, Adam Air is also operating a new aircraft to save fuel.

The same is done by Lion Air. In order to attract many passengers, Lion Air has reduced the operational costs of employees and passenger services and set up an online ticket sales system.
