From volcanic eruptions and earthquakes to blizzards and floods, the world has been unsettled by a wave of natural disasters in the past year. Coupled with "man-made" events, such as the political unrest in the Middle East and North Africa, at what point will private operators decide that airport investment under such circumstances is not worth the risk?
The political instability engulfing some North African states has extensive implications for tourism and aviation across the region. Already dozens of governments are warning their citizens to avoid travel to Egypt. Several have chartered aircraft to ferry their nationals out. Cairo Airport has been met with chaotic scenes in the past few days as thousands of foreigners seek to leave. In this special report, CAPA reviews the immediate aviation and tourism impacts from the North Africa/Middle East civil unrest.
With the announcement of new airport projects and continued economic and traffic growth, Turkey is once again demonstrating it is "Europe’s China": and not without foundation.
European carriers are becoming increasingly concerned by the Middle East airline threat on their core international businesses. CEOs from British Airways, Air France and Lufthansa have all voiced their opinions lately, as Middle East airlines continue to expand their global networks. But the European flag carriers are not standing idly by. Several are rapidly expanding their presence in the Middle East, to maintain and/or grow their share of this promising market. Emirates is the clear market leader, with a 21.0% share of capacity on Middle East-Europe routes. Qatar Airways is the second largest, with 8.7%, while Lufthansa, British Airways and Air France have just 5.6%, 3.5% and 2.7% shares, respectively.
This second in a special two-part CAPA report looks beyond the headline-grabbing "big three" European LCCs to provide updates on more than 20 secondary low-cost operators. Part II reviews the progress at Monarch, NIKI, Pegasus Airlines, SkyExress, Smart Wings, Sun Express, Sverigeflyg, Thomson Airways, Transavia.com, TUIfly, Wind Jet and Wizz Air, following on from Part I which reviewed Air Southwest, Anadolujet, Atlastjet Airlines, Belle Air, Blue Express, Blue Air, bmibaby, CLICK4SKY, Flybe, Germanwings, Iceland Express and Jet2.com.
TAV experienced a setback in 1Q09 as it reported a net loss in a period influenced by its expansion into Morocco and by the global economic crisis generally. However, the solid performance of airline THY in its domestic market and TAV’s capacity consistently to win major airport construction projects indicate this may be no more than a temporary blip.
