Air Canada is sticking to its strategy for its new low-cost carrier Rouge by introducing service in Jul-2013 to untapped long-haul leisure markets and operating flights to sun destinations - with a presumably lower cost structure.
The carrier is taking aim at both domestic rival WestJet and its vacations package business and large Canadian tour operator Transat. Now that Air Canada has unveiled the initial routes for Rouge, its competitors appear to be making schedule adjustments in response to the decision by Canada’s largest carrier to compete more aggressively in the leisure market.
Air Canada finally gained the green light to move forward with the establishment of Rouge after the government in 2012 stepped into contentious negotiations between pilots and management and ultimately allowed the carrier to impose a contract on pilots that included elements for the establishment of a low-cost carrier.
British Airways (BA) is preparing to disband bmibaby, the low-cost unit it unwelcomely acquired from bmi after previous owner Lufthansa failed to find a buyer. But as the saying goes: one man’s meat in another man’s poison and the news of bmibaby’s grounding was welcomed by multiple airlines including Monarch, Flybe and Jet2.com, all of which are swiftly stepping in to backfill capacity.
Anemic-turns-dynamic is not exclusive to bmibaby’s network but a development seen following the recent demise of other small- and medium-sized airlines in Europe such as Spanair, Malev and Cimber Sterling. In those cases, competitors have reacted swiftly and within a couple of days to fill the void.
bmibaby’s closure is indicative of a recent development in Europe: the lavish injection of capital in loss-making carriers is coming to a standstill with public and private shareholders alike halting the operations of these entities, mostly small- and medium sized airlines, a trend long overdue and induced by low or no economic growth in most EU countries implementing stark austerity measures, and high fuel prices.
Ryanair, Europe’s largest airline, posted results that missed expectations in its fiscal first quarter as higher fuel costs weighed on the net result.
The UK Competition Commission (CC) has delivered its "final verdict" on BAA, insisting that it must begin selling off London Stansted Airport within three months and later either of Glasgow or Edinburgh, two of the three airports that make up its Scottish division. A report issued on 19-Jul-2011 upholds a decision reached by the CC in Mar-2011 when it rejected an appeal by Spain’s Ferrovial-controlled BAA to prevent it from being forced to sell Stansted in southeast England. However BAA indicated it might seek a judicial review of the decision.
Air Malta’s troubles have become more acute as the struggling carrier’s unions increase their opposition to large-scale redundancies. Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi has stated the present situation is increasingly worrying, particularly in light of the EUR77 million the government has poured into the airline since Jun-2011.
BAA, the UK’s largest airport operator, announced it handled 9.34 million passengers in May-2011, a 9.2% year-on-year increase. BAA said the strong increase, was helped by the late Easter holidays and Royal Wedding leading to more passengers at the beginning of the month.
