Además de las noticias que confirmarían restos del MH370 en la isla Reunión (dominio francés) de estos días, la aerolínea anuncia cortes de rutas y capacidad:

MAS to drop Istanbul, downgauge Paris services
By: Firdaus Hashim
08:54 30 Jul 2015

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) will end the Kuala Lumpur-Istanbul service on 26 August.

In an email response to Flightglobal, the carrier also confirmed it will downgauge capacity on the Kuala Lumpur-Paris route, by deploying Boeing 777-200ERs to replace the Airbus A380s. It did not specify when this change will take place...

Pienso que MH penosamente está pasando como la época de PA tras el derribo del vuelo 103 en Lockerbie. La aerolínea tiene tal imagen que la gente difícilmente quiere volar con ella. Con tantas opciones en sus mercados regionales e internacionales no puedo imaginarme siquiera sus FO pero asumo deben estar fuertemente castigados.

Siguiendo con el desempeño financiero del verano, desde Japón se tienen buenos números con las principales rivales del mercado:

ANA more than doubles net profit in fiscal 1Q
Jul 29, 2015 Adrian Schofield

ANA Holdings reported a net profit of ¥8.3 billion ($67 million) for its fiscal first quarter, more than doubled from ¥3.4 billion in the year-ago period. Revenue was up 7% and operating costs rose 2.8%.

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is maintaining demand levels in its domestic network, despite new challenges from the latest expansion of Japan’s high-speed rail services.

Traffic, revenue and load factor all improved in ANA’s domestic network for the three months through June 30. This was the first full quarter following the opening of a Shinkansen “bullet train” line from Tokyo to the Hokuriku region...

Y la nueva JAL de hecho lleva la cabeza en los resultados...

JAL doubles profit in fiscal 1Q due to strong international demand
Jul 30, 2015 Adrian Schofield

Japan Airlines (JAL) Group achieved a net profit of ¥32.6 billion ($262.1 million) for its fiscal first quarter, more than doubled from a net income of ¥14.7 billion for the previous year. The carrier cited strong international demand for the increased profit.

JAL said demand from inbound travelers to Japan remained high, particularly on Chinese and Southeast Asian routes. Outbound premium demand was steady. The depreciation of the Japanese yen is providing cost headwinds for JAL, but it is also helping increase foreign tourist numbers...

THAI está cortando rutas y sigue también en modo de reducción, pero ahora de personal...

Thai Airways to cut 1,400 jobs
Aug 10, 2015 Jeremy Torr

Thai Airways International will cut its workforce by 1,400 by the end of the year. Despite pledging earlier this year that job cuts would be a last resort, the 25,000-strong workforce could be cut to as low as 20,000, Thai Airways president Charumporn Jotikasthira said.

The cuts, described by Thai as “part of a cost-reduction exercise ... carried out only after other measures to control and cut costs have failed,” will see the carrier reduce overall passenger seat numbers 15% by end-December.The announcement comes on the heels of the decision to cut Thai's scheduled services to both Rome and Los Angeles (LAX) by October as part of route rationalization, Charumporn said. The LAX cuts will also affect the carrier's Korean services because the 4X-week Boeing 777-200 LAX flights make a stop in Seoul...

El Al Israeli Airlines swings to profit in 1H
Aug 11, 2015 Alan Dron

El Al Israeli Airlines recorded a first-half net profit of $1.3 million, reversed from a loss of $23.4 million for the corresponding period last year.

First-half revenues dropped 5.7% to $930 million year-over-year. The Israeli flag carrier said the decline was due to several factors, including adverse exchange rates against the dollar and a 14% decrease in inbound tourism, which led to a 6.5% reduction in passenger revenue. Cargo revenue rose 1%.

Half-year costs dropped 10.2% to $775 million, largely due to lower fuel prices and the erosion of salaries resulting from the weakened Israeli shekel against the dollar.

QF se encamina a una sólida recuperación en su desempeño financiero:

Qantas sees dramatic $1.6 billion turnaround; 787 order firmed
Aug 21, 2015 Jeremy Torr

Australian flag carrier Qantas reported an annual gross income for FY2015 of A$975 million ($711 million), a dramatic A$1.6 billion reversal from its A$646 million loss in the year-ago period. The airline said the results were due to good progress with its Transformation Program, which saw A$894 million in savings during the year through cost cutting and redundancies, and saw Qantas pay down more than A$1 billion in debt.

“We reshaped our business for a strong, sustainable future … because we moved quickly and made tough decisions early,” said CEO Alan Joyce.

Revenue rose across all sectors, with Qantas Domestic seeing income of A$480 million compared with A$30 million in financial year 2014, and Qantas International seeing income of A$267 million this year, compared with a loss of A$497 million in 2014...

Bangkok Airways moves into profit
Aug 21, 2015 Jeremy Torr

Thai full-service regional carrier Bangkok Airways has reported a 2015 Q2 net profit of THB102.2 million ($3 million), a significant swing from its net loss of THB321 million in the same period last year. The airline said its results were due to operational efficiencies and the extension of its codeshare activities including a recent deal with Kazakhstan-based Air Astana.

The carrier saw revenue rise 12.9% to THB5.56 billion while passenger volume also rose 11% to 1.11 million, up from 1.05 million in the same period the previous year.

The airline has also seen additional benefit from the expansion of flight permits at its wholly owned Samui International Airport from a previous 36 to 50 flights a day. Nonetheless, the carrier only registered average load factors of just under 60%, down from an average of 65% for 2014...

Más conectividad longhaul en el norte de Europa:

CEO: SAS focused on long-haul flights in Northern Hemisphere
Aug 20, 2015 Kurt Hofmann

SAS Scandinavian Airlines plans to launch three North-Atlantic routes in 2016, adding 330,000 seats to its international network, the company said.

The new routes being launched are Los Angeles from Stockholm, Miami from Oslo and Miami from Copenhagen. SAS is also increasing the number of departures from Stockholm to New York and Chicago and between Copenhagen and Shanghai.

SAS will launch daily Stockholm Arlanda-Los Angeles services from March 14, 2016. Starting from fall 2016, SAS will launch 3X-weekly Oslo-Miami services as well as 3X-weekly Copenhagen Kastrup-Miami flights, according to the statement.

“SAS is focused on long-haul routes on the Northern Hemisphere. We are excited by our North American operations, but also to the Far East. That’s why we are also launching Stockholm-Hong Kong flights from next month,” president and CEO Rickard Gustafson told ATW...

Adquisición completada en Reino Unido:

IAG seals deal for Aer Lingus
Aug 18, 2015 Anne Paylor

British Airways owner International Airlines Group (IAG) has confirmed its deal to acquire Aer Lingus after Ryanair formally agreed to sell its 30% share in Aer Lingus.

Ryanair agreed in July to sell its 29.8% Aer Lingus stake to IAG, but said it would not issue a formal acceptance of the offer until mid-August, forcing IAG twice to extend the share offer deadline. Ryanair’s acceptance was a condition of IAG’s bid for the Irish carrier, and the offer is now wholly unconditional as all the conditions have been satisfied.

IAG chief executive Willie Walsh said: “We’d like to welcome Aer Lingus into IAG. It will remain an iconic Irish brand with its base and management team in Ireland but will now grow as part of a strong, profitable airline group. This means new routes and more jobs benefitting customers, employees and the Irish economy and tourism."...

Icelandair incorpora widebodies que ya tenía planeados... la pregunta es ¿hacia dónde los mandará?

Icelandair receives first Boeing 767
Aug 21, 2015 Victoria Moores

Icelandair has taken delivery of its first Boeing 767 from lessor GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), marking an increase in capacity from its current all-Boeing 757 fleet.

The Boeing 767-300ER delivery marks the finalization of fleet plans outlined in March, which included the introduction of two Boeing 767s into Icelandair’s mainline operation and three Bombardier Q400s for regional subsidiary Air Iceland.

An Icelandair spokesman confirmed that the GECAS delivery, announced by the lessor on Aug. 20, is its first of type. Icelandair is taking a pair of 767s, although only one of these will be sourced from GECAS.

Mis hipótesis irían a LAX (dado el interés de SK de meter vuelos desde Escandinavia) o bien MIA para conectividad hacia el resto de Europa. YVR por la cercanía con SEA imagino que puede ser una opción interesante aunque imagino estaría bien dentro de alcance del 752. Del lado de Europa podría imaginar a la aerolínea aventurándose a FCO, DME o incluso IST...

Consolidación muy importante e interesante en Rusia...

Aeroflot to buy 75%, plus one share, of Transaero
Sep 2, 2015 Polina Montag-Girmes

Russia’s Aeroflot, which revealed plans to buy Transaero Airlines Sept. 1, will acquire 75% plus one share of Transaero for RUB1 (1.53 US cents), TASS news agency reported, quoting Russia’s deputy prime minister Igor Shuvalov.

If the transaction is approved by Aeroflot’s board of directors, Aeroflot Group will get half the Russian airline market.

The deal follows Transaero’s increasing debt burden. In the 2015 first half, its loans and similar liabilities reached RUB67.5 billion ($1.2 billion).

At the end of December 2014, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a government resolution guaranteeing a three-year RUB9 billion loan to be provided by VTB Bank, which is 60.9% owned by the Russian government. In return, Transaero agreed to freeze domestic fares in 2015, and reduce fares by 5%-7% on domestic routes served exclusively by Transaero...

Con el crecimiento que había tenido Transaero en años recientes y el pedido de A380s no me imaginé que estuvieran en ese escenario financiero tan difícil.

Cambio de modelo de negocios para enfrentar mejor a LAN:

SKY será aerolínea de bajo costo: Pasajes a “precio de bus” y cobrará por comida
agosto 31, 2015

El viernes 4 de septiembre desaparecerá de los vuelos de Sky Airline su comida a bordo, y será reemplazada solo por un bebestible. Este es el primer paso concreto de un plan que prepara desde hace meses la aerolínea fundada por el empresario Jürgen Paulmann, hoy capitaneada por su hijo y sucesor, Holger Paulmann.

La hoja de ruta de la segunda aerolínea del país incluye varios cambios en los próximos 12 meses, de manera de transformarse en una compañía low cost, o de bajo costo, tan populares como masivas en Estados Unidos y Europa.

El CEO de la aerolínea, Holger Paulmann, explicó a “El Mercurio” que la razón del cambio es implementar un modelo de negocios sustentable, económicamente viable y más resiliente a los factores exógenos, como el valor del combustible y del tipo de cambio.

Entre los primeros cambios que se aplicarán será que el menú de los vuelos internacionales será “más liviano” que el actual. Además, desde principios del próximo año, tanto en rutas nacionales como internacionales dispondrán de un servicio de comida a bordo pagado.

Este no es el único cambio. Desde este año están vendiendo pasajes one way , solo un tramo, a precios que -indica Paulmann- son competitivos; es decir, más baratos que uno de ida y vuelta. También están evaluando el cobro del equipaje...

Fuente: http://aerolatinnews.com/2015/08/31/sky-sera-aerolinea-de-bajo-costo-pasajes-a-precio-de-bus-y-cobrara-por-comida/?utm_source=AeroLatinNews+Newsletter&utm_campaign=ee3a273d9a-Bolet_n_06-04-2015&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_8f3dfc6eee-ee3a273d9a-53147761

Hasta donde tengo entendido el servicio de LAN en mercado doméstico es prácticamente low-cost así que si Sky está sacrificando buenas prestaciones no estoy tan seguro de cómo estas líneas contribuyan a un mejor desempeño al cambiar su propuesta de valor ante los clientes.

Aegean 1Q losses widen as it invests in capacity
May 27, 2016 Alan Dron

Greek flag carrier Aegean Airlines recorded a net loss of €21.5 million ($24 million) for 1Q 2016, widened from a €8.3 million net loss for the year-ago quarter. The loss came on revenue up 7% at €147.9 million compared to €138.1 million a year ago.

Passenger traffic was up 9% at just over 2 million, while load factor slipped 1% to 69.3% compared to the year-ago period.

Aegean, which acquired the former national airline Olympic Air as a wholly owned subsidiary in 2013, operates both international services and a domestic network providing vital links between the many Greek islands and the mainland.

Domestic passenger numbers rose 6% to just over 1 million, while international passengers rose 12% to 956,000...

Una transformación de rentabilidad importante:

Jet Airways reports major profit turnaround in FY2015-16
May 26, 2016 Alan Dron

India’s Jet Airways Group posted a net profit of $185 million for the 2015-16 financial year, reversed from a net loss of $342 million for the year-ago period.

The Mumbai-based carrier said it had achieved the return to profitability a year earlier than scheduled in a turnaround plan that began two years ago. It cited a combination of factors, including enhanced fleet utilization and optimization of its network—which enabled better integration between domestic and international operations—for the results.

Revenue for FY2015-16 rose 5.9% to $3.38 billion year-over-year (YOY). Capacity in ASKs rose 11.9% over the previous year, while passenger numbers rose 14.8% to 25.8 million YOY. Load factor for the period rose 0.2% to 82.6% YOY. CASK, excluding fuel, fell 3.2% over the preceding period to 4.96 cents.

Just two years ago, Jet Airways was deeply in the red...

Cambiando de región... desde China hasta Europa con conexiones en América... HNA group tiene puentes muy interesantes que creo después podrían volverse conexiones formales en término comercial:

China’s HNA Group to buy TAP Portugal shares
May 26, 2016 Kurt Hofmann

China’s HNA Group will buy an initial 7% stake in Atlantic Gateway, a private consortium that owns 50% of TAP Portugal. This could raise a stake that could reach up to 20% of the Portugal flag carrier, TAP spokesperson Isabel Palma confirmed to ATW in Lisbon.

Meanwhile, the Portuguese government increased its stake in TAP Portugal to 50% last week, the Swiss daily Neue Zürcher Zeitung reported.

On May 20, Portugal’s new Socialist government signed an agreement to partially review privatization of the airline. “Late last week, the Atlantic Gateway GRP and the Portuguese government signed the agreement establishing the conditions/terms to reconfigure each one’s participation in TAP share capital,” Palma told ATW.

Palma said HNA will take a 7% minority stake in Atlantic Gateway. “On the other hand, HNA is due to enter into Azul’s share-capital, which has subscribed bonds in TAP that may be converted into shares, should that happen in the future. If so, this could mean HNA may come to have an indirect participation in TAP via Azul [up to 13%]. In the end, and putting both together, it could go up to 20% in the whole,” Palma said.

In November 2015, Haikou, China-based HNA Group, the parent of Hainan Airlines, made a firm commitment to buy a 23.7% stake in Azul Brazilian Airlines for $450 million...

Estoy leyendo la última entrega de Jetnews y comentan algo importante para AR.

En toda su flota han iniciado la implementación de EFB y tabletas para hacer cabinas paperless.

Un paso sin duda muy importante y en la dirección correcta para seguir ayudando a mejorar el desempeño de esta empresa.

Flybe reports first net profit in five years
Jun 9, 2016 Victoria Moores

UK regional airline Flybe has posted a £6.8 million ($9.9 million) net profit for its full 2015-16 financial year, reversing a £35.7 million prior-year net loss.

“We achieved profitability for the first time as a public company, following losses in every year since Flybe’s stock market flotation in 2010,” Flybe CEO Saad Hammad said. “Flybe is now a much more resilient business and well positioned for profitable growth.”

Flybe is two years in to its three-year turnaround strategy. Key milestones of the plan have included the company’s exit from its Flybe Nordic joint venture airline with Finnair and redeployment of 14 surplus Embraer E195 jets.

Revenue for the year ended March 31, 2016 rose 8.7% to £623.8 million, while operating costs rose 5.2% to £594.7 million, producing an operating profit of £8.7 million, reversing a £12.7 million prior-year operating loss...

No sabía dónde poner esta nota... me llamó mucho la atención porque estaríamos ante un escenario de requerir expatriados aunque se tenga una barrera legal a ello:

Falta de pilotos limitará expansión de aerolíneas mexicanas hacia el 2020
junio 10, 2016

Cuando el Nuevo Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México resuelva la escasez de slots, problema que ha limitado la expansión de las aerolíneas en el país, aparecerá un nuevo inconveniente: la falta de pilotos aviadores.

En 4 años, habrá un déficit de 900 aeronáutas mexicanos en México por el crecimiento de las aerolíneas, el tiempo en el que se preparan y los límites que impone la regulación, según un cálculo realizado por El Financiero.

“La preocupación es que no se tengan los pilotos suficientes para atender la expansión de la flota, los pilotos tienen que prepararse y alcanzar horas-vuelo en simuladores para poder operar. La expansión de las empresas, como Emirates, que encargan 200 aviones de un sólo pedido, representa competencia de las aerolíneas nacionales por el personal de vuelo”, dijo Francisco Ortigoza, secretario de asuntos técnicos de la Asociación Sindical de Pilotos Aviadores (ASPA).

Aeroméxico anuncia 9 vuelos operados sólo por mujeres El ‘cementerio’ de las aerolíneas mexicanas Aviación ejecutiva ve futuro alentador por reformas

Y es que mientras aerolíneas extranjeras pueden contratar a aeronautas mexicanos, por ley, las nacionales sólo pueden emplear a pilotos nacidos en el país.

El artículo 32 de la Constitución Política de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos establece que se requiere la calidad de mexicano por nacimiento en capitanes, pilotos, patrones, maquinistas, mecánicos y, de una manera general, para todo el personal que tripule cualquier embarcación o aeronave que se ampare con la bandera o insignia mercante nacional...

¿Qué pasará? Si el pronóstico es certero, la CANAERO debería empezar a gestionar con las autoridades este tema que no es menor... muchos países del mundo ya permiten la contratación de extranjeros y eso ha contribuido a que crezcan sus aerolíneas. Ojalá se tenga visión en nuestro país para ello.

Curiosidad; Virgin Australia tendrá dos inversionistas chinos con buen calibre en ambos casos:

China’s Nanshan Group to buy 20% Virgin Australia stake
Jun 10, 2016 Katie Cantle

China’s privately run Nanshan Group has purchased a 19.98% stake in Virgin Australia from Air New Zealand. This transaction makes Nanshan the second Chinese company within a month to invest in the Australian carrier.

Air New Zealand will sell the stake in Virgin Australia at 0.33A$ a share to Nanshan Group, which owns Qingdao Airlines.

“We believe Nanshan Group will be a very strong, positive and complementary shareholder for Virgin Australia,” Air New Zealand chairman Tony Carter said in a statement. “The sale will allow Air New Zealand to focus on its own growth opportunities, while still continuing its long-standing alliance with Virgin Australia on the trans-tasman network.”

Air New Zealand holds a 25.9% stake in Virgin Australia and is considering options on the rest of its Virgin Australia shares. Other stakeholders include Singapore Airlines, which received approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board to boost its stake in Virgin Australia to 25.9% and Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, which holds a 25.1% stake in Virgin Australia.

At the end of May, HNA Group announced it would invest A$159 million ($114 million) to buy a 13% stake in Virgin Australia for A$0.3 per share and plans to increase the stake to 19.99%.

Virgin noted the tie-up would boost access to the “rapidly growing Chinese travel market” and has applied to introduce direct flights between Australia and China...
