CNN ‘BUSINESS TRAVELLER’: RICHARD QUEST GOES ROUND-THE-WORLD ON LOW COST AIRLINES
Monday, April 11, 2016
This month he flies to Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Singapore
This month on CNN ‘Business Traveller’ Richard Quest embarks on an epic adventure - 10 airlines, 9 countries, 8 days – all on low cost carriers. The aim is to show how far people can go on the world’s expanding range of low-cost carriers, and which airlines offer the best services for those on business and on a budget.
Quest shows how the low-cost experience varies from airline to airline and from city to city. He begins the journey in London, and travels to Belgium, the Czech Republic, the United Arab Emirates, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Hawaii, Los Angeles, New York, and finally back to London.
In the April episode, Quest takes a look at easyJet, Ryanair, flydubai, Air Arabia, and interviews AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes. He also completes viewer challenges such as trying local seafood on the beaches of Colombo and taking a selfie with the Merlion in Singapore. The journey to show how low-cost carriers are changing the game for the airline industry continues next month in this special two-part series.
