Europe’s largest no-frills carrier has unveiled plans to cut 34 weekly flights from its schedule to and from Morocco in a row over airport charges. The cut represents about 14% of its current capacity to/from Morocco and will result in Ryanair's capacity share in the Western Europe-Morocco market dropping 1 percentage point to about 16%. The new cut follows cuts implemented over the last nine months which have already reduced Ryanair’s share of capacity in the Western Europe-Morocco market by 4ppt from about 21% to 17%.
While relatively small in the broader Moroccan market, the new cuts are significant because Ryanair is the largest low-cost carrier in the country and is the second largest carrier in the key Morocco-Europe market. The dispute with Morocco’s state owned airports authority ONDA (Office National Des Aéroports) could potentially lead to further capacity cuts by Ryanair, leading to a potential drop in traffic at ONDA airports and impacting Morocco’s important tourism industry.
Mother nature is going to cost easyJet as much as GBP100 million this year, but the UK-based LCC does not expect that to prevent it from posting a healthy profit. Winter snow disruptions in 2009 and 2010 resulted in losses of approximately GBP25 million. The recent ash-related airspace shut downs are expected to cost another GBP50-75 million.
Union leaders expressed alarm at easyJet’s decision to stop flying from East Midlands Airport and to scale back its Luton operation, which could threatens about 250 jobs. Up to 1.5 million passengers will be effected by the plan to axe 360 flights a week.
easyJet recently announced plans to reduce capacity at London Luton Airport by 20% and close its East Midlands Airport base in 2010. The LCC stated it will move this capacity to more profitable airports and expects most aircraft will be redeployed to continental European bases, to maintain its targetted growth of 7.5% p/a.
Ryanair recently announced plans to expand its bases, adding another in the UK and one in Malta. The move supports the carrier’s recent announcements of capacity cut backs at Manchester, London Stansted and Dublin International Airports.
easyJet’s rolling results for the whole year to 30-Jun-2009 show a healthy increase in overall passenger numbers and seat factors.
