Lufthansa Group stated Germanwings is expected to report an improved operating result in 2011, despite the air traffic tax and the high oil price continuing to present challenges for Germanwings throughout the 2011 financial year. The company did not provide further details about its outlook, other to say that the full year result will be an improvement on last year’s operating result of an EUR11 million loss. However, given the increasing losses in the first half of the year, the carrier will still fall short of the record EUR39 million operating profit achieved in 2009.
European LCCs, led by Ryanair, easyJet and Air Berlin, commanded 32% of intra-Europe capacity (seats) in 2009, representing spectacular growth from just 4.6% less than 10 years ago in 2001 and a 20.2% share in 2005. But the 'big three' are just part of the story. This special two-part CAPA report looks beyond the headline-grabbing 'big three' European LCCs to provide updates on more than 20 of Europe’s secondary LCCs. Part I reviews Air Southwest, Anadolujet, Atlasjet Airlines, Belle Air, Blue Express, Blue Air, bmibaby, CLICK4SKY, Flybe, Germanwings, Iceland Express and Jet2.com, while Part II (coming soon) will review the progress at Monarch, NIKI, Pegasus Airlines, SkyExpress, Smart Wings, Sun Express, Sverigeflyg, Thomson Airways, Transavia.com, TUIFly, Wind Jet and Wizz Air.
Germanwings CEO, Thomas Winkelmann recently stated the carrier is having its most profitable year ever, and is set to report records in absolute profit and margin.
Wizz Air Ukraine has expanded its international footprint, launching twice weekly Oslo Torp-Kiev Boryspil service on 04-Jan-09, the first air link between Ukraine and Norway. The carrier’s three times weekly Kiev-Katowice service, launched on 03-Jan-09, was the first low cost air link between Ukraine and Poland.
Cologne Bonn Airport reported a 10% increase in net profit for the 12 months ended 31-Dec-07 to EUR5.5 million, resulting in a net margin of 2%. While small by airport standards, margins have been heading in the right direction, aided by record traffic last year of 10.5 million passengers (up 6% year-on-year) and 719,077 tonnes of cargo (up 3.7%). Cologne/Bonn was the fastest growing among the Top Ten airports in Germany last year, driven by its innovative focus on the LCC segment, particularly in targeting growth in Eastern Europe.
The European Parliament this week adopted a Directive to set common (and therefore, hopefully more transparent) principles for calculating airport passenger taxes, to try to prevent any abuse of a dominant position in the market by individual airports.
