It is not easy for nay new entrant to come into the industry and gain customer’s trust and build reputation. Also, it can be said that AirAsia will continue to enjoy this trust of customer until and unless it provides the cheapest fare.

1.2 Threat of substitute Other transport methods: Substitutes are basically products or services which can replace existing product or services. Airline industry thus have a huge substitutability as for example, if one has to go within the country bus, train or personal vehicle are good substitutes as they are cheaper. Considering about long-haul like India or Australia, Airlines are a good option and have low substitutes.

1.3 Power of buyer The bargaining power of buyers is high as not many airlines provide flights at cheapest price. AirAsia certainly has lower prices and provide good facilities and amenities to customer.  Development of technology has helped airline industry. Now, people can buy their ticket on a click. Customer can go through many airlines website and also some travel websites and easily look at more cheaper and better price. Therefore, airlines have less negation power and customer enjoy high bargaining power.

1.4 Bargaining power of suppliers Airline industry has two suppliers-Airbus and Boeing. They are the only two companies who supplies aircraft to industry and thus enjoy Duopoly.
