Hawaiian Airlines is readying for a slow-down in expansion after an ambitious push into long-haul international markets that has encompassed the introduction of more than 10 new destinations during the last few years.
The slowdown is occurring as industry capacity in Hawaiian’s US mainland markets is rationalising and a new revenue management system is helping to improve performance at the airline’s Maui hub.
Despite continuing currency headwinds, Hawaiian remains bullish on its long-term outlook for Japan, which during 3Q2013 represented half of the airline’s international network. With the planned slowing of growth, Hawaiian appears to be laying the groundwork to hunker down and effectively manage the maturation of the new routes that have come online.
Indonesia-Australia aviation has traditionally been dominated by inbound traffic to Bali. The resort island accounts for over 80% of capacity in the market and Australian visitors to Indonesia currently outnumber Indonesian visitors to Australia by a more than six to one ratio. But the market is slowly starting to diversify with more flights linking Australia with the capital Jakarta and secondary Indonesian destinations.
Australia is well positioned to benefit from Indonesia’s booming economy as its growing middle class starts to have the income and desire to holiday overseas. The geographic proximity of the two countries means several routes are within the range of narrowbody aircraft, opening up a huge range of new options for LCCs and full-service carriers from both countries.
This is the third report in a series of reports on the Asia-Australia aviation market. The first report looked at the Malaysia-Australia market and the rapid growth of AirAsia X. The second report looked at the Philippines-Australia market and bilateral limitations which are blocking the launch of services from Cebu Pacific. This report looks at the larger Indonesia-Australia market, which has seen significant growth this year and has potential for continued rapid growth over the medium to long-term.
Bilateral agreement differences are providing a check on the launch of services to Australia by Philippine low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific, which is interested in serving Melbourne and Sydney using its new fleet of A330-300s. The differences between Australian and Philippine authorities on an extension to their air services agreement is frustrating Australian airports, which have seen medium/long-haul low-cost carriers drive international traffic growth in recent years.
Cebu Pacific would be the fourth medium/long-haul LCC to operate international services to/from Australia, joining AirAsia X, Scoot and Jetstar. The rapid expansion of AirAsia X in Australia, where the Malaysian carrier will become by the end of 2013 the fourth largest foreign carrier, was analysed in the first part in this series of reports on the Asia-Australia market.
The Philippines is a much smaller market for Australia than Singapore or Malaysia. But there is potential for significant growth, particularly if a new LCC can enter, stimulating demand in a market which is highly price sensitive.
The CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit, to be held in Sydney at The Four Seasons Hotel on 7-9 August 2013, will be the biggest ever aviation and travel strategy summit ever held in our region. CEOs from airlines and airports across Australia and New Zealand, plus a selection of leaders from airlines serving the region will examine the industry's crucial issues.
“This will undoubtedly be the richest gathering of aviation thought leaders we’ve seen in this country and a wonderful opportunity for the exchange of ideas and the deepening of relationships”, said CAPA Executive Chairman, Peter Harbison.
Garuda Indonesia plans to start competing on the Kangaroo route in Nov-2013, when it launches services to London Gatwick. The carrier is expected to start offering services between Australia and other European destinations in 2014, when it aims to launch new non-stop routes from Jakarta to continental Europe.
The Indonesian carrier is expanding in the Australian market ahead of launching services to London, adding capacity to its three existing Australian destinations – Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Garuda is also launching services to Brisbane in Aug-2013 and aims to launch services within the next several months to Auckland, which opens up the possibility of connections between New Zealand and Europe.
This is the second of a two-part series of reports on Garuda Indonesia’s international expansion plans. The first part analysed the carrier’s overall position in Indonesia’s international market and the 10 international routes it plans to add in 2013. This part looks at the carrier’s entry on the highly competitive Kangaroo route between Australia and Europe.
Garuda is accelerating expansion in Indonesia’s under-served international market as part of an initiative to build its international profile ahead of entry into the SkyTeam alliance. The international expansion will see Garuda launch at least 10 new routes in 2013, including Jakarta-London.
London Gatwick will become in Nov-2013 its second European destination after Amsterdam. Garuda will also launch in 2013 several new short-haul international routes within Southeast Asia and three new medium-haul routes to Australia and Japan.
The long-haul expansion is made possible by the delivery of Garuda’s first batch of 777-300ERs. The 777-300ER will be Garuda’s new flagship and the only aircraft in its fleet featuring a three-class cabin – with economy, business and first class sections. Garuda also continues to expand its A330 fleet, which it uses primarily within Asia-Pacific.
