Hong Kong-Seoul becomes Asia's 9th largest international airline route as LCCs capture 21% share

12-Dec-2014 1:07 PM

Cultural interest in Korea has helped the Hong Kong-Seoul route grow 65% over the years, pushing the route from being Asia's 13th largest based on international seats to ninth largest. LCCs have amassed a 21% market share, mostly at the expense of Cathay Pacific and Korean Air even though they have increased capacity. Asiana has slightly increased market share due to its very large growth, albeit from a smaller base. HK Express in Feb-2015 will operate 18 weekly flights. Jin Air will grow beyond a daily flight, which Jeju Air did earlier in 2014. The route also sees fifth freedom operators that aggressively compete on price.

Airline expansion has helped the number of Korean visitors to Hong Kong grow 22% while Hong Kong visitors to Korea have grown a faster 40% but from a lower base. Overall tourism expansion is lower than air capacity growth, suggesting local full-service airlines are growing to increase transfer traffic while fifth freedom operators have low load factors and limited demand between Hong Kong and Seoul.

Ethiopian Airlines to continue Asia expansion with Singapore non-stops, giving Changi a needed boost

3-Oct-2014 1:05 PM

Singapore Changi is poised to emerge as the Asian hub for Ethiopian Airlines as the African flag carrier looks to introduce non-stop flights on the Addis Ababa-Singapore route in 2015. The new flight could lead to a further strengthening of the Ethiopian Airlines-Singapore Airlines partnership, which already includes seven destinations in Australasia.

The launch of non-stop flights to Ethiopia would be the most significant accomplishment yet in Changi’s push to establish a foothold in the fast expanding Asia-Africa market. Local traffic between Singapore and Africa is very limited but Africa can potentially emerge as an important new source for transit passengers, unlocking new growth as Singapore’s traffic figures start to flatten.

Ethiopian Airlines has been contemplating serving Singapore non-stop and making Changi its hub for offline destinations in Asia-Pacific since it joined the Star Alliance in late 2011. A final sweetener could be Singapore’s newly introduced incentive for long-haul flights and transit passenger growth.

flydubai and fastjet drive LCC growth in East Africa as Uganda gets its first taste of low fares

29-Sep-2014 8:35 AM

East Africa is seeing an influx of new LCC services, led by expansion at flydubai and fastjet. flydubai is launching six destinations in four East African countries during Sep/Oct-2014, which will make it the leading LCC in the region’s international market.

flydubai and fastjet both launched services to Entebbe in Sep-2014, giving Uganda its first taste of low fares. flydubai will also by the end of Sep-2014 become the first LCC to serve Burundi and Rwanda, increasing the number of East African countries with low-cost services to eight, compared to only three two years ago.

There are only about 300 weekly flights operated to from or within East Africa by low-cost carriers, resulting in an LCC penetration rate of about 8%. But LCCs are expanding rapidly in the region with over half of East Africa’s LCC routes launched within the last year.

787 network analysis: 20% of Dreamliner routes are new, others replace aircraft on existing routes

14-Jul-2014 8:20 PM

Boeing's 787 Dreamliner was billed as a "hub-buster", an aircraft that would open new routes and allow passengers to fly non-stop in thinner markets rather than transfer via a hub. With the 787 approaching three years of service, how have airlines used the aircraft? Looking at routes planned for the northern winter 2014/2015 schedule, 17% of 787 routes have been launched with the Dreamliner. The remaining 83% have had the 787 replace or supplement an existing aircraft.

The 787 has had a difficult entry into service, with airlines intending to launch routes with the 787 but having to use other aircraft types as an interim measure. If we include such known examples of routes launched with an interim aircraft and later switched – often mere days or weeks later – to the 787, the share of 787 routes opened with the Dreamliner increases to 20%.

South African Airways pursues more growth in Africa including potential Ghana JV: SAA Part 3

24-Jun-2014 7:15 PM

South African Airways (SAA) is planning to expand its regional international network further as the flag carrier reduces its focus on the domestic market and tries to turn around its highly unprofitable long-haul operation.

SAA is increasing capacity to several existing destinations in Africa and plans to launch more new regional international destinations by the end of 2014. SAA also still hopes to open a base in West Africa, which is a key component of the carrier’s new business plan and will enable several destinations to be served which would not be viable non-stop from Johannesburg.

SAA is also looking at growing its budget brand Mango in the African market through potential joint ventures. But the group expects Mango’s existing South African operation to focus mainly on the domestic market, which SAA views as becoming increasingly price conscious and therefore unable to support its mainline full-service product - with the exception of the two main trunk routes.

Singapore Airlines seeks to expand its partnership portfolio further following a spate of new deals

20-May-2014 10:00 AM

Singapore Airlines (SIA) is focusing on further expanding its partnership portfolio to provide a more comprehensive network and boost feed. New deals have been forged over the last six months with Air New Zealand, Asiana, EVA Air and Turkish Airlines as part of an ongoing initiative which is expected to generate more new or expanded partnerships by the end of 2014.

SIA has already more than doubled its codeshare segments over the last three years as it has added eight new partners and strengthened several existing partnerships. The group is now negotiating several more new partnerships while seeking opportunities to improve connectivity with existing partners.

In this analysis CAPA examines the increasingly important role partnerships are playing in SIA’s European, African and Middle Eastern networks. In a second part, to be published later this week, CAPA will focus on SIA’s need to rely more on partners to expand across the Americas.
