Tutor description

It is clear that SWA has followed the low-cost provider strategy in the five generic competitive strategies that discussed in Chapter 5 by providing lower overall costs including fares cost, customer pleasing services cost and operating costs than other companies and then trying to find ways to make up the costs. For example, SWA has only operated one kind of airplane. SWA is the first company to introduce ticketless travel or point to point scheduling of flights. It shows that the company put their entire effort on finding ways to reduce cost as well as make up the low-cost in every step of the services they offered. The cost reduction carried out by the company confers a competitive advantage over competitors and the financial performance is excellent.
