As Indigo Partners moves closer to finalising its acquisition of Frontier Airlines and heightens the efforts underway to transition the airline into a true ultra low-cost carrier similar to Spirit Airlines, certain nuances to Frontier’s strategy should prove interesting for Indigo to navigate as it works to place Frontier squarely in the US’s growing ultra low-cost business model. Overall, the ultra low-cost business scheme has so far proven fruitful for Spirit in terms of the carrier’s financial performance; but passengers still bristle about being nickel and dimed even though they are paying base fares lower than most other airlines (even so-called low-fare airlines) by a significant margin.
Headed by former Spirit Airlines chairman William Franke, Indigo was a major owner of Spirit as it began the transition to an ultra low-cost carrier in 2006. As is now well documented, he set the wheels in motion to purchase Frontier earlier in 2013 when he resigned as Spirit’s chairman and Indigo sold its stake in Spirit.
The deal is expected to close some time during 4Q2013; but Indigo has no doubt been plotting a strategy specific to Frontier’s network to ensure the successful execution of the business model change. It is a formidable challenge for a long-standing brand that for a long period of time offered at least some medium frills. Indigo’s biggest challenge may lie in avoiding isolating a loyal Frontier passenger base in Denver that has already endured a number of significant changes since its 2009 purchase by Republic Airways Holdings.
Delta Air Lines officially launched its shuttle product between Los Angeles and San Francisco on 3-Sep-2013, initiating an interesting experiment in one of the most competitive markets in the US. It caps off recent expansion by both Delta and American from Los Angeles as both carriers work to refine their strategy in the highly fragmented market.
The replication of Delta’s US east coast shuttle service on the west coast intensifies growing competition among US major, hybrid and in some cases low-cost carriers to garner a higher share of premium higher-yielding passengers, evidenced by the recent spate of plans tabled by those airlines to offer new premium products in the key US transcontinental market from New York to Los Angeles and San Francisco.
It is tough to predict if Delta can successfully execute a shuttle product on the intra-California route as other carriers in the past have not achieved much luck from similar efforts. Delta also has a lower profile in the Los Angeles market than American or United, based on seat deployment, so wooing corporate travellers from those carriers could prove to be a formidable challenge.
It’s official: Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is the world’s busiest cargo hub – ending Memphis International Airport’s 18-year reign at the top of the world rankings. HKIA’s rise to the top reflects surging exports from China’s Pearl River Delta, while Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific became the world’s largest international air cargo carrier last year, overtaking Korean Air.
August and September revealed some surprising airport privatisation developments, notably in the US and Greece, suggesting a resurgence in activity, in the least expected of places.
