The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Asian low-cost airlines are offering dirt-cheap tickets to perk up travel during the summer holidays amid the global economic downturn. Tiger Airways has announced it would launch summer fares starting at about $US16, including taxes. Jetstar Asia said it had extended until August 16 a promotion to beat the cheapest price offered by rivals. AirAsia also has its "take me away" promotion. Among its offers is a one-way flight from Singapore to Bangkok starting from $US43, inclusive of taxes, for travel from March 23 to September 11, according to its website. Finally, Nok Air is offering one-way fares for as low as 25 cents, excluding taxes and fees, for domestic flights for those travelling from May 15 to September 30.
