Aprovechamiento de 5a libertad del aire... algo de los tiempos clásicos de la aviación todavía existe en nuestros días:

Ethiopian Airlines to establish Bangkok as hub
Jun 7, 2016 Jeremy Tor

Ethiopian Airlines is looking to develop a Southeast Asian hub at Bangkok, according to reports by the Ethiopian State News Agency.

The airline is planning to use its existing facilities and fifth freedom permissions to establish routes out of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport to destinations including Singapore and Indonesia.

In November 2016, the carrier plans to launch a connecting schedule for its 7X-weekly Addis Ababa-Bangkok service that will connect to Hanoi, Vietnam. The Hanoi flight will add to existing connections from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Manila, Philippines. It plans to introduce the Singapore Changi and Soekarno-Hatta, Jakarta, connections by March 2017...

¿Cómo nos ve IATA como mercado para los próximos años?

IATA tiene perspectiva favorable para crecimiento de la aviación mexicana
junio 6, 2016

Para México se tiene un estimado de crecimiento en el tráfico de pasajeros de 4.1 por ciento en el periodo de 2015 a 2020.

El número de pasajeros que viajan en avión en México crecerá a una tasa promedio de 4.1 por ciento anual en los próximos años, estimó la Asociación Internacional de Transporte Aéreo (IATA, por sus siglas en inglés).

El presidente y director general de la IATA, Tony Tyler, aseguró que por lo anterior las perspectivas para la aviación mexicana son muy buenas y el país tiene una buena posición en la región Latinoamericana, además que la construcción del nuevo aeropuerto genera expectativas favorables.

Tras clausurar la 72 Asamblea General Anual de la IATA, en donde dio a conocer en esta ciudad de Irlanda las perspectivas de la industria a nivel global, indicó que para México se tiene un estimado de crecimiento en el tráfico de pasajeros de 4.1 por ciento en el periodo de 2015 a 2020.

Aclaró que para mantener esas perspectivas favorables es necesario desarrollar el nuevo aeropuerto tan rápido como sea posible y cuidar sobre todo el tema de costos de operación para las aerolíneas...

Y perspectivas para toda la industria con algunas notas sobre riesgos para el resto del año:

IATA: Airline profits outperforming sluggish economic growth
02 June, 2016 BY: Graham Dunn Dublin

While record profits in a low-growth economy suggest airlines have gone some way to successfully decoupling their financial fortunes from economic growth, the IATA believes fragility of the latter remains the biggest to derailing the industry's strong profit run.

IATA today during its AGM in Dublin raised its industry profit outlook for 2016 by a further $3 billion to $39.4 billion. It also increased its 2015 industry profit to $35.3 billion.

If the industry financial performance plays out as IATA projects, it would continues the rapid profit growth the industry has enjoyed since coming out of global financial crisis...

...On the possible risk of over-capacity, fueled by lower oil prices, Pearce see little evidence of it impacting performance. "At the moment we are not seeing any signs we are returning to the old days of very cyclical profitability. Load factors are still very high. We are seeing them come off their peak, but we are still expecting to see load factors for 2016 of 80%. And remember breakeven load factors are likely to fall further because of the impact of fuel pricing and fuel hedging."

But for all its efforts to decouple fortunes from the economy, Pearce still sees the economy as the key factor. "I think the main worry we have is the fragility of the world's economy. As well as the industry has done to decouple itself to some extent from that....its still quite difficult for the industry to do well in difficult conditions, so that's what worries us the most," he says...

Una interesante visión de todo el sector desde IATA en voz de su presidente saliente:

Tyler: Airline business still not easy
Jun 1, 2016 Karen Walker | ATWOnline

As he takes the IATA AGM stage for the last time as director general, Tony Tyler remains all business and doggedly determined to continue addressing those issues that hamper the global airline industry.

Tyler highlighted some of the key issues he expects to be at the top of the agenda at the 72nd AGM here in Dublin.

“The biggest issue will be the environment in the run-up to the ICAO Assembly in September,” he noted. “There is a huge opportunity to fix this issue and we need to do our part to show that this industry is united and that we will continue to work with governments towards market-based measures’ implementation.

“As always, safety is on the agenda, and on the security side there are clearly challenges. Most recently, the Brussels [terrorist attacks] show that public areas are vulnerable. So let’s do all we can to reduce crowding in public areas. Let’s get people moving quickly through airport terminals and through security without long queues. In the US, the TSA congestion is unacceptable; everyone recognizes that and something needs to be done,” Tyler said.

“We also still need to work on taxes and get governments to see aviation as a driver of economic growth rather than a cash cow. And with infrastructure, there are still significant problems in China, the Gulf and elsewhere, while the US is making slow progress with NextGen. Airport charges are another issue, particularly as what you see with some large hubs is that airports are effectively monopolies. So we need effective regulation where the airport is required to consult with its customers. It’s important for governments to recognize that.”

But the “number one priority,” Tyler believes, is the overall state of the global economy. “There’s plenty to worry about there. The way some of the industry is performing right now is somewhat defying economic gravity. The figures are pretty good, but I think airlines are finding out that cheap oil is nice, but it doesn’t solve all problems...

Un zoom a la región...

Bleak Economic Times Make Hard-Going For Latin American Carriers
Jun 1, 2016 Madhu Unnikrishnan | Executive Report

For most Latin American carrier CEOs coming to the IATA AGM, the prosperity of their continental neighbors in North America seems a distant dream. Political instability in two of South America’s largest countries is adding to airlines’ woes in the region, as economic travails continue.

Brazil and Venezuela are facing political crises, while the International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicts the region’s economy will contract by 0.5% this year, more than expected, marking the first two-year period of contraction since the economic crisis of 1982-1983.

Brazil’s political uncertainty continues as the country’s legislature in May suspended President Dilma Rousseff and appointed a caretaker government headed by interim President Michel Temer. Rousseff faces impeachment proceedings in the Senate later this year, and the appointment of a caretaker government has eased some of the more pressing political concerns; yet, the country continues to face political uncertainty, analysts say.

But more pressing for Latin America’s largest economy is its continuing recession, as global demand for natural resources and commodities remains soft. The IMF reports the country’s GDP contracted by 3.8% last year and will contract by 3.8% this year. Unemployment rose to 11% by the end of March, and the real has devalued by 47% against the dollar. This has had a direct effect on airlines in the country, Gol CEO Paulo Kakinoff said. Rising unemployment and economic softness has led to softer domestic bookings, and business travel has fallen by as much as 58% in the industry...

...But nowhere in the continent is as badly affected as Venezuela, which is facing social and political chaos even as its economy founders and inflation rises at the fastest pace in the world. Low crude oil prices have cost Venezuela’s economy significantly, because petroleum is its main export and the country sits on some of the world’s largest petroleum reserves. But economic mismanagement has played as large a role. The government’s response to the currency’s collapse in value has been to refuse to let companies repatriate revenues earned in bolivars at a realistic exchange rate. Using the official exchange rate would return airlines only a fraction of what they earned in the country. IATA estimates the world’s airlines have $3.8 billion trapped in the country as of May 2016...

...The outlook for Colombia, which also depends on commodities exports, remains bleak as well. Airlines that serve the country say yields remain depressed and are not likely to recover this year. Chile, too, is expected to remain weak this year as its mining industry suffers from decreased demand. Argentina may have turned the corner with the election of President Mauricio Macri last year, a development which boosted investor confidence in the country.

It isn’t all doom and gloom. The IMF notes that Mexico and Central America are benefiting from the relatively strong US economy and low oil prices, with GDP growth rates forecast to be 2.4% and 4.25%, respectively. Mexico’s thriving airline industry, with its burgeoning ultra low-cost-carrier sector—led by airlines such as Interjet and Volaris—is transforming the way people travel in that country...

Cómo se ve la situación en Colombia...

Colombia: Aerolíneas revisan nuevos socios y subir tarifas ante proyecto de ley y grandes pérdidas
junio 17, 2016

El año pasado, el sector aéreo del país perdió cerca de 453.000 millones de pesos. Propuesta de eliminar multas y obligar reembolsos no gustó.

Los tiempos de los crecimientos anuales superiores al 10 por ciento, del aumento de la competencia y de las tarifas promocionales, que impulsaron en los últimos años el auge de pasajeros en avión están terminando y en el corto plazo las aerolíneas están revisando su modelo de negocio para implementarle los ajustes que sean necesarios para que la operación sea rentable.

Luego de que el año pasado todo el sector aéreo que opera en Colombia perdiera cerca de 453.000 millones de pesos (principalmente por golpe de la devaluación en sus costos), para un aumento del 90,3 por ciento frente al saldo en rojo que se vio en el 2014 (de 238.000 millones de pesos), las empresas más grandes miran varios escenarios para enfrentar la nueva realidad.

Mientras Avianca, que en su operación local tuvo pérdidas por 349.000 millones de pesos (su matriz, Avianca Holdings tuvo un saldo en rojo de 379.000 millones de pesos) realiza fuertes ajustes a sus costos y está gestionando la búsqueda de un socio estratégico, las otras aerolíneas no solo hacen esta tarea, sino que están evaluando qué cambios hacer en cuanto a costos y en cuanto su estructura de ingresos.

El presidente de Latam Airlines Colombia, Fernando Poitevin, asegura que ante un gran desafío de rentabilidad por el aumento de costos y porque los crecimientos de demanda no van a ser los mismos que se vieron en los últimos 10 años, del 10 u 11 por ciento anual, sino del 4 o el 5 por ciento, “sin duda puede haber un aumento y que el ciclo de tarifas bajas termine”. “Uno puede hacer dos cosas. O aumenta tarifas, que no es tan fácil, o tiene que achicarse y reducir la operación”, aseguró el directivo...

Y en contraste cómo se ve México con escalada de tarifas:

Aerolíneas mexicanas suben hasta 15% precios
junio 17, 2016

La fortaleza del dólar y una recuperación en el precio de la turbosina provocaron que las aerolíneas mexicanas Aeroméxico, Interjet y VivaAerobus elevaran hasta 15 por ciento sus tarifas en el primer trimestre de 2016.

El aumento es casi 6 veces más que la inflación a marzo, que se ubicó en 2.60 por ciento.

De acuerdo con datos del Inegi, de enero a mayo de este año, las tarifas aéreas crecieron 6.1 por ciento, la tasa de crecimiento más alta desde 2012, cuando se ubicó en 8.5 por ciento.

VivaAerobus realizó el mayor incremento, con una tarifa promedio de mil pesos, 14.7 por ciento más que en 2015, de acuerdo con su reporte trimestral.

Grupo Aeroméxico registró una tarifa promedio entre enero y marzo de mil 398 pesos, 4.5 por ciento más que el mismo periodo de un año atrás. Interjet hizo lo propio, pues su tarifa promedio por pasajero llegó a mil 392 pesos, 5.5 por ciento más que en 2015...

La fortaleza de México en el sector es tal que le ha dado a las aerolíneas para tomar posiciones muy importantes de mercado hacia Latinoamérica:

Aerolíneas mexicanas recuperan mercado en Centroamérica
Las aerolíneas mexicanas como Aeroméxico e Interjet, reportaron un incremento conjunto de 53.2 por ciento de pasajeros en 2015, respecto al año anterior, al llegar a un millón 74 mil viajeros.
Everardo Martínez
29.05.2016 Última actualización 30.05.2016

Aeroméxico e Interjet recuperaron la participación de mercado que empresas centroamericanas y de El Caribe habían ganado tras la salida de Mexicana de Aviación, en 2010.

Las aerolíneas reportaron un incremento conjunto de 53.2 por ciento de pasajeros en 2015, respecto al año anterior, al llegar a un millón 74 mil viajeros.

En contraste, las compañías centroamericanas y del Caribe, como Cubana de Aviación, Taca o Copa Airlines, entre otras, reportaron una contracción en el mismo periodo de 0.3 por ciento, a un millón 226 mil viajeros...

Viéndolo desde ese punto de vista, si el mercado no crece como tal, sí hay mucho mercado que robar...

¡Ojalá que las mexicanas pongan mayor énfasis en el servicio, trato a los clientes y todo lo que conlleva el famoso "added value" o valor agregado de un producto!

El paisaje aéreo en Europa podría reconfigurarse seriamente con la noticia del Reino Unido... y llama la atención en la nota el tema de que para Easyjet no pintaría nada bien el escenario y British tampoco la tendría fácil en tema de conectividad:

What Does Brexit Mean for Commercial Aviation?
Vinay Bhaskara June 24, 2016

MIAMI — The United Kingdom (UK) has voted to leave the European Union (EU). The so-called “Brexit” is the culmination of years of building anti-European sentiment in the UK, and it will immediately trigger a two-year negotiated exit from the EU once the Prime Minister formally invokes Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU). While the consequences of this decision naturally have a major impact across Britain’s society and economy, the impact on aviation will be particularly acute...

...The gating question for how large the impact of Brexit will be on British aviation is whether UK will remain a part of the European Common Aviation Area (ECAA), which includes all of the EU member states as well as Norway, Iceland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Kosovo. Right now, as an EU member, British carriers may fly any route to and from any country in the ECAA (e.g. London – Athens), any route between two separate countries in the ECAA (e.g. Paris – Milan), and even domestic routes within any country in the ECAA (e.g. Berlin – Munich). Of course the same right applies to other European airlines (hence Ryanair’s massive operation at London Stansted).

Europe is by far the largest market for most UK airlines, whether through routes to and from the UK for the likes of British Airways and Monarch, or from bases in Europe for low-cost carriers (LCCs) like EasyJet. This makes maintaining access to the ECAA absolutely critical, and there is certainly a precedent for non-EU members to gain access to the ECAA...

...The biggest losers in such a scenario would be the UK’s Low-cost carriers, particularly EasyJet, which has bases and routes all throughout Europe, the majority of which do not touch the UK at all. Without a strong bilateral access, it would be unclear whether EasyJet would be allowed to persist as an entity (in all likelihood its UK entity and European entities would have to be spun off from each other, with the latter transferred to new, European ownership). This would be a disastrous scenario for EasyJet, particularly if accompanied by bilateral uncertainty.
Net negative for British Airways/Virgin Atlantic well

The effects are likely to be more mixed for the UK’s primary full service carrier, British Airways, as its focus is more on longer distance routes from its London Heathrow hub that would likely be maintained outside of the ECAA. Virgin Atlantic, without a short haul network in Europe at all, would be even more insulated. The flip side is that British Airways is more dependent on business travel, which would suffer in the wake of a likely post-Brexit recession (particularly on its European network), and Virgin Atlantic would see similar effects.

For British Airways, the other risk comes in the form of its parent company, International Airlines Group (IAG), which now includes Spain’s Iberia, low-cost carrier Vueling, and Ireland’s Aer Lingus. IAG’s transnational holdings structure is only allowed as a result of the EU’s existence. IAG has generated significant benefits for British Airways, many of which would disappear if British Airways was forcibly spun off in the wake of Brexit.
In general terms, Brexit would cause plenty of harm to Britain’s full service carriers...

Más cooperación en el cono sur...

Aerolineas firmó un acuerdo de código compartido con Gol
junio 23, 2016

Aerolíneas Argentinas y su competidora brasileña Gol profundizaron su alianza con un acuerdo de código compartido a 45 destinos, 20 dentro de Argentina y 25 en Brasil.

” A partir de hoy, las rutas directas entre Buenos Aires (Ezeiza y Aeroparque) y Brasil (Porto Alegre, Florianópolis, Curitiba, Belo Horizonte, Salvador, Porto Seguro, Recife, Fortaleza, Natal), además de las de Córdoba y Rosario a Río de Janeiro, se agregan a la alianza estratégica, que ahora cuenta con 160 vuelos semanales en 15 rutas sin escalas”, dijo Aerolíneas, a través de un comunicado.

“Se trata de la extensión de un código compartido, que es novedosa sobre todo por la cantidad de destinos y la extensión geográfica que abarca”, señalaron voceros de Aerolíneas. “No es una alianza estratégica, como la que hay entre otras aeroliíneas de la región, sino la profundización de una alianza comercial”...

Y del otro lado del mundo se abre la inversión extrajera para India:

India permite que las aerolíneas sean 100% extranjeras
junio 21, 2016

India ha liberalizado su régimen aplicable a la inversión extranjera directa en la economía, incluyendo el permiso a poseer hasta el 100 por ciento de las aerolíneas nacionales, un movimiento que hizo que las acciones de las compañías aéreas nacionales subieran en la jornada de hoy.

Las acciones de Interglobe Aviation, que posee la mayor y más rentable aerolínea de la India, IndiGo, subieron casi un 4 por ciento tras el anuncio.

¡Vaya que el Brexit va a pegar! No había visto este tema, pero entonces EasyJet y RyanAir podrían detener mucho su crecimiento, en tanto, beneficiar al resto de los países al haber una disminución de competencia. Los usuarios perderán quizás.

Respecto al movimiento de India, muy interesante esa extensión de tenedores en acciones.

Finnair to introduce Wi-Fi service on A330s
Jul 8, 2016 Kurt Hofmann

Finland flag carrier Finnair will begin installing Panasonic Avionics Corp. (PAC Panasonic) Wi-Fi on its eight Airbus A330-300s in October. Installation is estimated to be completed in May 2017.

“In May 2017, our customers will be able to enjoy wireless network connection onboard all of our long-haul fleet,” SVP-customer experience development Piia Karhu said in a statement.

Finnair introduced the first wireless services at the end of last year onboard its six new Airbus A350 XWBs. Finnair, which was the European launch customer for the twinjet, has 19 of the type on order...

QantasLink extends Boeing 717 operations to 2026
Jul 6, 2016 Victoria Moores

Qantas regional airline QantasLink has signed a 10-year extension to its agreement with Cobham Airline Services, which operates Boeing 717s under the Qantas brand.

“Cobham announced today that it has been awarded a 10 year, A$1.2 billion ($0.9 billion) contract to continue provision of airline services to QantasLink, supporting their fleet of 20 Boeing 717 aircraft to the end of 2026,” Cobham said in a statement.

Under the partnership, which began in 1991, Cobham carries more than 2 million passengers per year across Australia on behalf of QantasLink...

The Singapore Airlines Group has reported a 2016-17 first-quarter net profit of S$256.6 million ($190 million), nearly tripled from a S$91.2 million net profit in the year-ago period ended June 2015.

The result was partially driven by a 4.4% drop in Group expenditure to S$3.46 billion for the 1Q 2016 period.

However, the carrier warned that “the business outlook remains challenging amid economic weaknesses and geopolitical concerns in some markets.” It also said that competition remains “intense” and that pressure on yields is likely to continue.

Although non-fuel costs for the Group rose during 1Q 2016 because of capacity expansion at subsidiaries Scoot and SilkAir, the Group saw a 28% drop in fuel year-over-year...

Japan Airlines reports 55% profit drop for June quarter
Jul 29, 2016 Adrian Schofield

Japan Airlines (JAL) saw its net profit decline 55% to ¥14.7 billion yen ($143.6 million) in the three months through June 30, partly because of earthquakes in Kyushu and weakness in many global markets.

Revenue fell 4.8% to ¥297.2 billion during the fiscal first quarter, and operating profit was down 39% to ¥22 billion. Despite these drops, JAL has not changed its guidance of a profit of ¥192 billion for the full fiscal year.

The carrier highlighted the “sense of uncertainty” in the British and European economies following the UK’s vote to leave the European Union. JAL said it also sees weakness in emerging markets in Asia, in addition to China’s economic slowdown.

On the domestic front, earthquakes in the Kyushu region in April have caused a decline in tourism. JAL reduced capacity to meet the lower demand, mainly on routes to Kyushu from Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. Kumamoto Airport was closed or restricted following the quakes. These were factors in the carrier’s overall domestic capacity dropping 2.6% year-on-year...

Icelandair 2Q net profit rises 17%; downgrades outlook
Jul 28, 2016 Victoria Moores

Icelandair has reported a 2016 second-quarter net income of $26.2 million, up 17% from a $22.4 million profit in the year-ago period; however, the airline has downgraded its outlook because of market uncertainty triggered by Brexit and recent terrorist attacks.

“The group’s operations over a challenging period were successful and we have never seen better second-quarter results,” Icelandair president and CEO Björgólfur Jóhannsson said, adding that this was partly because of the airline’s growth strategy.

Second-quarter revenue rose 12.6% to $331.4 million, while expenses increased 14.3% to $279 million, producing an EBITDA operating profit of $52.4 million, up 4.3% from a $50.3 million operating profit in the prior-year quarter...

IAG half-year profits jump 67%
Jul 29, 2016 Alan Dron

International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG) reported a substantially improved half-year performance July 29. Like many counterparts, however, the Group expressed caution on the remainder of the year because of a spread of external factors.

Net profit for the Group—which encompasses Irish flag carrier Aer Lingus, British Airways, Spain flag carrier Iberia and Spanish low-cost carrier (LCC) Vueling—rose to €554 million ($618 million), up 66.9% compared to €332 million a year ago, although the latter figure excluded a contribution from Irish national carrier Aer Lingus, which was only formally acquired by IAG in September 2015.

The latest result was achieved on revenue of €10.8 billion, up 4.1% year-on-year (YOY)...

Air Canada posts $143 million 2Q net profit
Aug 1, 2016 Mark Nensel

Air Canada reported C$186 million ($143 million) in net profit for the second quarter of 2016, down 37.2% from the airline’s C$296 million net result in 2Q 2015.

Air Canada’s 2Q revenue increased 1.3% year-over-year (YOY) to C$3.46 billion while expenses increased 2.9% YOY to C$3.18 billion, producing an operating profit of C$277 million, down 14.3% from C$323 million in the prior-year second quarter.

Air Canada president and CEO Calin Rovinescu highlighted the company’s record EBITDAR result for the quarter—C$605 million, up 2.4% YOY—attributable to “both an increase in revenue and traffic, and specifically from our continued … focus on unit cost improvement.” The company estimated that flight cancellations related to the Fort McMurray forest fires in May reduced EBITDAR by approximately $10 million during the quarter. The company continues to expect its full year 2016 EBITDAR will increase between 4% and 8% over 2015...

Qatar Airways increases stake in IAG to 20%
Aug 1, 2016 Kurt Hofmann

Gulf carrier Qatar Airways has increased its stake in International Airlines Group (IAG) from 15.67% to 20.01%, on what it called an attractive buying opportunity, the company announced Aug. 1. Qatar said it owned the bigger stake in IAG as of July 28.

IAG is the parent company of British Airways (BA), Irish flag carrier Aer Lingus, Madrid-based Iberia and Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling.

Doha-based Qatar originally acquired a 9.99% stake in IAG in January 2015. It increased that stake to just under 12% in April and to 15.01% in May.

IAG CEO Willie Walsh told ATW in early June that Qatar saw IAG as a “good financial investment.”...

JOHANNESBURG, July 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA], South African Airways (SAA) and low-cost carrier Mango today celebrated Africa's first passenger flights with sustainable aviation biofuel. The flights coincided with Boeing's 100th anniversary and centennial celebrations worldwide.

The SAA and Mango flights carried 300 passengers from Johannesburg to Cape Town on Boeing 737-800s using a blend of 30 percent aviation biofuel produced from Sunchem's nicotine-free tobacco plant Solaris, refined by AltAir Fuels and supplied by SkyNRG.

"SAA is committed to a sustainable future and this flight highlights the bold steps we are taking to protect and preserve our environment while creating opportunities for the economic development of our people," said Musa Zwane, acting CEO of SAA. "We are pleased to join the ranks of global airlines who have made a commitment to a better and cleaner way of flying."

"It is fitting that on our 100 year anniversary we are flying on fuels ‎that not only power the flight, but ensure a sustainable future for our industry," said Miguel Santos, managing director for Africa, Boeing International.

Cuatro aerolíneas inician vuelos en Honduras
diciembre 20, 2016

Choice Air comenzó el pasado 15 de diciembre a operar vuelos regulares desde Honduras a dos importantes ciudades de Estados Unidos.

Los viajeros hondureños comenzaron a tomar los vuelos que de San Pedro Sula los llevan a Miami, Estados Unidos, con frecuencia de siete veces por semana, mientras que los vuelos a Nueva Orleáns tendrán una frecuencia de tres veces por semana, detalló el periódico hondureño La Prensa.

Esta aerolínea “trae mejores precios y se pueden preparar atractivos paquetes turísticos”, declaró Emilio Silvestri, director del Instituto Hondureño de Turismo (IHT), cuando anunció la llegada de la empresa aérea a Honduras, el mes anterior.

Los precios iniciales que ofrece la aerolínea, que fue fundada hace 30 años, son de $399 hacia Miami y $499 hacia Nueva Orleáns.

Más oferta

El mismo 15 de diciembre, Air Panamá comenzó a operar con dos vuelos directos desde ciudad de Panamá hacia el Aeropuerto Juan Manuel Gálvez de Roatán, Islas de la Bahía, cita la revista Proceso de Honduras.

Air Panamá es la segunda aerolínea más grande de ese país, tiene su sede en el aeropuerto internacional Marcos A. Gelabert, y ofrece vuelos chárter y regulares a diferentes localidades de Panamá, al igual que vuelos regulares a la ciudad de San José de Costa Rica, Medellín y Armenia, en Colombia.

Esta aerolínea operará con dos vuelos directos semanales y pondrá a disposición aeronaves de tipo Fokker 100 con capacidad de 100 pasajeros.

Por otra parte, Air Europa también anunció en noviembre pasado que a partir de abril 2017 operará 26 vuelos desde Madrid a San Pedro Sula.

Air Europa saldrá de la capital española los miércoles a las 23.55 (hora de ese país) y los jueves a las 10.25 a.m., desde el aeropuerto Ramón Villeda Morales de San Pedro Sula. Será un vuelo semanal.

La operación durará únicamente seis meses, es decir, durante la temporada alta de turismo en Europa...

Sin duda parece que Centroamérica está de moda... con medio mundo incursionando en la región.

Empiezan a circular expectativas del próximo año... Brasil seguirá cuidando capacidad aunque parecen ya haber tocado fondo:

Brazil’s GOL aims for 7% operating margin in 2017 guidance
Dec 23, 2016 Mark Nensel

São Paulo-based low-cost carrier (LCC) GOL is estimating its 2017 operating margin (EBIT) will be in the 5%-7% range, the airline said Dec. 22. GOL’s preliminary financial guidance for the coming year is on par with its 6% EBIT guidance for 2016.

GOL’s total seat guidance for 2017 shows a decrease of -3% to -5%; capacity will drop modestly, between 0% and -2%. The airline expects to operate an average fleet of 115 aircraft. By the end of 2016, GOL will have 122 aircraft in its operational fleet.

According to the company’s operational fleet plan, the number will be reduced to 117 by the end of 2017. GOL’s total fleet as of Nov. 10 comprised 102 Boeing 737-800NGs and 33 737-700NGs...
