Turkish Airlines’ bullish African expansion plans will see the carrier launch service to several destinations in 2012 and upgrade many existing routes to twice daily. The carrier’s focus for 2012 is on expanding in emerging markets, primarily Africa, as further network expansion in the US is on hold and plans for launching service to Australia will likely not materialise until at least 2013.
Turkish currently operates 18 destinations in Africa, including Misrata in Libya which was launched in Dec-2011. Turkish CEO Temel Kotil told CAPA in Dec-2011 that the carrier plans to launch in 2012 Abuja and Kano in Nigeria; Kigali in Rwanda; Abidjan in Cote d’Ivoire; and Mogadishu in Somalia.
The carrier has since also announced plans to launch in 2012 Kinshasa in The Democratic Republic of the Congo, which could give Turkish an African network of 24 destinations by the end of this year.
LCC start-ups dominated airline news this week. Air Canada revealed it is drawing up a business plan to launch an LCC in response to its fast-growing low-cost rivals such as WestJet, Porter Airlines, Air Transat and Sunwing in the Canadian market, according to reports.
EgyptAir Holding company Chairman and CEO, Hussein Massoud, stated the carrier plans to increase full-year profits by nearly a third, commenting that the carrier is currently “making a profit", and adding: "We are planning to see more this year”. The company is targeting a USD132 million profit in the 12 months to Jun-2011, a 31% year-on-year increase.
