The new codeshare between airberlin and Alitalia, accompanied by a reciprocal frequent flyer agreement, reveals the guiding hand of Etihad Airways. It is another example of the growing cooperation among Etihad's equity investment airlines, whether current (airberlin) or prospective (Alitalia). This follows the launch of Etihad Airways Partners, which includes airberlin, but not yet Alitalia, although the latter it seems very likely to join after European Commission approval of Etihad's purchase of a 49% stake in it.
Both the new codeshare and Etihad Partners reflect a more liberal mood within the global alliances, allowing cooperation across alliances. Airberlin and Alitalia will remain members of oneworld and Skyteam respectively. The airberlin/Alitalia codeshare also comes just after an unexpected decision by Germany's federal aviation authority Luftfahrt Bundesamt (LBA) to reject airberlin/Etihad codeshares on 34 routes this winter. These are around half of the routes operated under airberlin's codeshare with Etihad and have received approval in the past.
The LBA appears to have reversed its decision, at least temporarily. If it stands for the longer term, the past week looks like a case of one step forward, two steps back for airberlin.
With five aircraft, MIAT Mongolian Airlines is North Asia's smallest flag carrier. Mongolia in recent years has gained attention for double digit economic growth, including having the world's fastest-growing economy in 2011. Growth in 1H2014 slowed to about 5%, but even if this slower pace continues, there will be demand for air services as Mongolia seeks to win back passengers carried by foreign carriers, gain business through new markets and grow tourism. Against this background MIAT Mongolian Airlines, one of only two international Mongolian carriers, is steadily growing and renewing its fleet. But MIAT now faces competition from Mongolia's second international carrier, Hunnu Airlines.
MIAT in 2014 supplemented its Moscow-Berlin service with a non-stop to Frankfurt in order to facilitate a greater range of transfers and take advantage of Frankfurt's transfer facilities, which do not require Schengen visas. MIAT's Beijing service was extended to Singapore in hopes of building business ties and also growing tourism. MIAT is considering launching flights to Bangkok and New Delhi while a new capital city airport that will open in 2016 with a transit area could give MIAT transit traffic flows from Europe to Asia over Ulaanbaatar.
Wolfgang Prock-Schauer and James Hogan, respectively the CEOs of airberlin and Etihad Airways, held a joint press conference in Berlin on 13-Jan-2014. At the conference, they reviewed the progress of their codeshare agreement since 2012 and outlined plans for its development in 2014.
In addition, Mr Hogan took the opportunity to reinforce the rationale behind Etihad’s equity alliance strategy (“Global reach is beyond the capability of any single airline”). He also reiterated his airline’s support for airberlin (“We are confident that airberlin is on the right path back to profitability and the next phase in the airline’s proud history”).
The announcements led to an 11% increase in the share price of Air Berlin PLC on the day as investors were cheered by Etihad’s vote of confidence in the loss-making German carrier. Nevertheless, the closer co-operation signalled by the two airlines stopped short of what some observers had expected. Further developments cannot be ruled out, however.
Etihad's announcement that it was buying 33.3% of Switzerland-based Darwin Airline was made on the first day of the Dubai Airshow and was easily lost in the fury of orders announced that day.
Darwin only flies aircraft with 50 seats, less than the number of premium seats that will be on many of the 350-plus widebody aircraft Gulf carriers ordered at the airshow. But the announcement is significant, and three reasons stand out.
First, for Etihad the carrier will "connect the dots" in Europe for itself and partners, linking hubs but also tertiary cities, which have largely been passed over by Gulf carriers. Many of these cities are served by the Lufthansa Group. This gives rise to the second significant impact: on Europe's legacy carriers. Gulf carriers changed their long-haul business while European LCCs decimated short-haul. Regional traffic was always typically a burden, and will come under further pressure following Etihad's announcement. Third is that Darwin Airline will re-brand as "Etihad Regional", and Etihad openly states Darwin is only the first carrier to use this new brand. As the industry still digests Etihad's partnership and equity strategy, Etihad promises to change another component of aviation – and raise the stakes in the liberalisation of the industry, especially by stamping its name on a European carrier.
On 4-Oct-2013, Lufthansa gave a presentation to analysts and investors in London on developments in its Passenger Airlines business, with a focus on giving more details of the progress of the ‘new Germanwings’. The session was led by Carsten Spohr, CEO of Lufthansa German Airlines, and supported by the CEO and CFO of LCC subsidiary Germanwings.
The speakers gave an update on the transfer of non-hub European point-to-point traffic from Lufthansa to Germanwings and its expected impact on the group’s short/medium-haul losses.
Lufthansa’s plans for Germanwings are more far-reaching than those of Air France with its LCC subsidiary Transavia France. However, IAG already has a fully fledged stand-alone pan-European LCC in the form of Vueling. Moreover, both Transavia and Vueling (and other European LCCs) have lower unit costs than Germanwings. Can it generate enough of a price premium to offset this cost disadvantage?
Air Lituanica launched services at the end of Jun-2013, making it the first scheduled Lithuanian carrier since the collapse of FlyLAL in 2009 and Star1 Airlines in 2010. Air Lituanica will see Lithuania once again connected to other key European countries through a home-based carrier.
As the largest of the three Baltic states with a land area of 65,300km2, Lithuania has a population of about three million and had a GDP in 2012 of about USD42 billion, according to World Bank data. The country currently has four airports in Vilnius, Kaunas, Palanga and Šiauliai which are served by about 20 foreign carriers.
Aside from Air Lituanica, there are currently five other Lithuanian airlines including five charter carriers (Aurela, Avion Express, DOT LT, Grand Cru Airlines and Small Planet Airlines) and one cargo carrier (Aviavilsa). There have been no domestic services in the country since the demise of FlyLAL.
