Two major elements driving Air Canada’s 2Q2012 negative financial results – labour strife and pressure created by the sudden shutdown of its major maintenance provider Aveos – are the areas where the carrier sees prime opportunities in the future as new labour agreements allow for the creation of a new low cost carrier and negotiations with new suppliers ensure a substantial improvement in the costs of airframe maintenance.
Air Canada management during the last year has often cited the transformation that needs to occur at the carrier in order for the airline to compete in the new competitive environment ushered in by LCCs and spiking fuel prices. But in the short term the company still must deal with disgruntled employees and increasing competitive pressure that will not pause as Air Canada works to complete its transformation.
During 2Q2012 Air Canada widened its losses year-over-year by CAD50 million (USD50.2 million) to CAD96 million (USD96.4 million), while net losses for 1H2012 expanded by CAD241 million (USD242 million) to CAD306 million (USD307 million).
Major European airports – some privatised, others in the public sector – have released financial results for 1Q2012 and in two cases for FY2011. Unlike the last time an across-the-board results survey was undertaken, in 2011, there is a greater degree of uncertainty in some countries in this first quarter that is reflected in these reports but there still remain more positive than negative results, especially in Scandinavia.
Increasing economic uncertainty in Europe has resulted in US carriers pulling back capacity to the continent later this year to proactively contain losses and a drop-off in traffic that could result from the increasing likelihood of Greece’s exit from the euro zone and the Euro falling to a two-year low against the US dollar. Delta has already stated its goal to reduce capacity 5% across the Atlantic during the fourth quarter, while United has already instituted schedule changes that show a pull-down in secondary European markets. US Airways, which during the last year has enjoyed marked success in its trans-Atlantic business segment, has not declared any plans regarding its capacity to Europe later in the year. But the carrier is launching several seasonal services on the back of its strong performance in the European market.
Trade group Airlines for America (A4A) estimates that during the fourth quarter of this year US carriers will reduce their capacity to Europe by 7.8% as they attempt to better manage seasonality and stave off effects of a recession on the continent. This change is significant as Western Europe is still the largest international market from the US.
Whatever the difficulties of the airline business, the airports that support their activities are making out quite well, at least according to the raft of annual financial results for FY2011 released at the end of Feb-2012. In fact, apart from Athens Airport, which has its own problems at the moment, and – surprisingly – Copenhagen Airport, all the airports in this sample improved on their financial result, even if that merely meant reducing losses by comparison with the previous period.
Alex Cruz, CEO of Spanish LCC Vueling, spoke passionately at a recent conference of his need to see partnerships between airports and airlines that are deep and long-lasting. Mr Cruz referred specifically to co-operation that permits both partners to benefit from alternative revenue generation. Ahead of the forthcoming CAPA Airlines in Transition conference in Istanbul – which will feature some 30 airline CEOs addressing this and related issues – we consider how these parties have collaborated in the past and how it is shaping up now.
Vueling Airlines has become one of the innovators of the hybrid/low-cost business model that has become more prevalent and is found in other airlines such as easyJet (progressively) and Flybe (one of the originators of the model).
The fast changing airline industry makes life difficult for airport planners – just as change also offers opportunities.
Norwegian Air Shuttle reported a strong third quarter (three months to 30-Sep-2011) result, bolstered by strong gains in revenue, passenger numbers and careful cost control. The result for the third quarter, seasonally the carrier’s strongest, was Norwegian’s strongest ever quarterly result as the LCC continues to expand at breakneck pace in the Northern Europe region in which it now claims bases in all four major Nordic markets. The carrier is targeting a greater share of the corporate sector but will soon have to defend itself from full-service competitor SAS, who it has taken market share from.
Norwegian, the first European carrier of the third-quarter reporting season reported a stellar result amid a concerning quarter for the continent's airlines, which was characterised by downward revisions to earnings by many major carriers, although LCCs are faring much better.
