Outrageous business ideas
When you think about different business ideas to work on, there are many different angles of approach. Most people, however, would not neccessarily have "start an airline" on their short list because, mentally, it seems like a lot of work to start an airline.
That's what makes this article particularly interesting:
- A British teenager says he has launched a low-cost airline from his bedroom, becoming possibly the youngest airline boss in the world...
"I called round a few airlines and asked how they had done it and I slowly realised it was quite achievable," he said.
Mr Reilly, who attends Deyes High School in Maghull, showed his project for Nexus Airline to a financial adviser who found backers for the business.
Initially Nexus will operate services from an airport in Liverpool, northern England, to the Spanish Canary Island destinations of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.
The obvious question I had when I read this article was, "Where do you get the plane?" The answer can be found in this article:
- Nexus, which has received backing from private UK investors, plans to lease a Boeing-737 jet from Futura International Airlines to facilitate the new services.
Note that "getting money" does not seem to have been a barrier for this particular business idea.
I think the moral of the story is, "don't immediately dismiss ideas that at first might sound outrageous."
