London City Airport: the changing competitive landscape at the UK capital's most expensive airport

20-Jan-2015 3:36 PM

London City Airport (LCY) reported an increase of 7.7% in passenger numbers to 3.65 million in 2014, its highest ever number and ahead of forecasts according to CEO Declan Collier. The airport attributed the growth to increased business confidence, helping to return business travel to pre-recession levels. Traffic also received a boost from the entry of UK regional airline Flybe just before the start of the winter 2014/2015 schedule at LCY.

Flybe's entry into London City, at a time when CityJet has been reducing capacity, has given a significant boost to domestic capacity and also had an impact on the list of top routes. In the current winter schedule, Amsterdam has been replaced by Dublin as the number one destination by seats, with services now from all three of the airport's biggest airlines (British Airways, CityJet and Flybe).

A number of routes have been cut this winter by airlines at London's most expensive airport (as defined by aeronautical revenue per passenger), although Flybe's entry tips the balance in favour of routes opened. The high cost of operating at the airport will lead to further route churn, but the strategy seems to be working.

easyJet lassos London Gatwick and Luton airports with long term deals

2-Apr-2014 6:09 PM

easyJet has recently concluded long term deals with Gatwick and Luton airports, its two largest London bases. The Gatwick deal follows a change in economic regulation that encourages a more tailored approach and the Luton agreement follows a change of concession ownership and a commitment to capacity expansion.

Last year, easyJet reached a similar agreement with Stansted, which is no longer subject to economic regulation. easyJet also operates from Southend, the smallest London airport, albeit not under a long term contract.

easyJet's London airport deals give it both a high level of visibility over airport charges and real flexibility about where to deploy its capacity. It has thrown an effective lasso around the UK's capital, and now appears to have tightened its grip on the rope.

Monarch Group - not absolute ruler, but on course to profit in FY2013 with strong turnaround

18-Jun-2013 3:31 PM

On 12-Jun-2013, privately owned Monarch Group published its annual report and accounts (for the year to Oct-2012) for the first time and issued a trading update for 1HFY2013. The group also says that, following a Nov-2011 re-financing, its turnaround strategy is on course to return the loss-making group to profit in FY2013.

Monarch Group, which includes tour operations and aircraft engineering in addition to scheduled leisure airline Monarch Airlines, is currently considering an order of up to 62 new aircraft for delivery up to 2024. Executive chairman Iain Rawlinson has recently denied that the company is seeking a public listing or new shareholders.

Nevertheless, the size of this planned aircraft order and the first-time publication of an annual report, which reveals an under-capitalised balance sheet, may well fuel speculation that the group is indeed considering just that.

Who wants to unite with Manchester?

21-Feb-2012 10:42 AM

Abandoning the habits of a lifetime, Manchester Airports Group (MAG), under the command of relatively new and aviation outsider CEO Charles Cornish, has announced it is seeking equity investment to equip it to bid for one or more airports; the two going hand-in-hand. Momentarily it is not clear exactly what MAG has in mind and neither it nor the municipal owners are being forthcoming either. MAG is Britain’s second largest airport operator after the depleted BAA and is almost unique in that it remains in public ownership. Who are the potential investors and just what would they be buying into?

Veni, Vidi, Vinci – We came, we saw, we bought airports

25-Nov-2011 12:24 PM

French conglomerate Vinci makes a welcome return to international airport financing and operations as its division Vinci Concessions – which calls itself “private partner of public interest” – let it be known that it has aspirations to acquire Hochtief’s airport assets, although it appears, so far, not to be attracted by BAA’s Edinburgh Airport.

UK airports record strong summer and first half, but charter carriers face up to new realities

14-Sep-2011 2:51 PM

The UK’s major airports have reported a surprisingly upbeat summer season, with the country’s largest airport operator BAA setting a new passenger traffic record. London Luton, Gatwick, City and Manchester have also posted encouraging results this year, as the country shifted back into growth mode after a difficult few years. But BAA has warned that the better times could to be coming to an end, with a weaker-than-expected growth outlook for the remainder of the year.
