AirAsia X IPO prospectus shows strength. AirAsia synergies help, also require definition

9-Nov-2012 4:45 PM

The prospectus for the forthcoming IPO for AirAsia X, a separate business from AirAsia, shows that the low-cost long-haul model can be successful, operationally and profitably, but only when deployed sensibly. During 1H2012, a challenging time for the global industry, AirAsia X reported a respectable 7.9% pre-tax margin on services to Australia, which comprise about half of the carrier's capacity.

The low cost model is ideally suited to Asia's price sensitive, high growth environment and AirAsia X's symbiotic relationship with Asia's biggest LCC, AirAsia, makes it a formidable model.

Attempts to serve Europe, since ended, resulted in a -26% margin in 2011. Yet Europe's weakness for AirAsia X was acknowledged early on. The sharply business-minded CEO Azran Osman-Rani went in saying he would be happy to break even; AirAsia X fell to pressure to plant the red flag in Europe at the behest of part-owner AirAsia, which still harbours an entrepreneurial spirit – and, at times, the associated confidence.

This will be the market's crux for AirAsia X's future – where AirAsia stops and where AirAsia X begins. AirAsia X is substantially complemented by AirAsia to sustain its effectiveness. The relationship between the two is a give and a take. The market, in assessing the IPO, will determine the balance.

Looser regulations allow Star and oneworld to tighten partnerships; Delta continues domination

18-Feb-2011 10:25 AM

In the throes of bankruptcy, Japan Airlines was wooed by Delta, intent on prying it from the oneworld group. In the end, the overtures were unsuccessful but it has not prevented Delta from remaining the dominant foreign carrier in Japan, with a local network that is unprecedented elsewhere in the world.

CAPA’s Hottest Airlines to watch in 2011: Europe

9-Nov-2010 5:09 PM

The European airline market was battered by the global financial crisis, recording a combined loss of USD4.3 billion in 2009, according to IATA. Europe's tepid economic recovery, the ash cloud crisis, difficulties in cutting capacity and massive structural changes within the short-haul market have conspired to make 2010 another challenging year. Losses are anticipated at USD1.3 billion in 2010, making it the only region to be unprofitable in an otherwise strong year for recovery elsewhere. But there are some bright spots in the region. In this report, CAPA reviews the European airlines expected to make waves in 2011.

Kansai and Osaka airports to be conjoined under private control?

11-May-2010 5:21 PM

Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport & Tourism (MLITT) Minister, Seiji Maehara, has proposed to the Governor of Osaka a plan to transform Osaka Airport into a stock company and integrate it with the offshore Kansai International Airport under joint management. The justification is that the Kansai region's population is too small to justify three airports, and that Osaka Airport's operations inhibit the realisation of Kansai Airport's potential. Mr Maehara stated the rights to operate the two airports in the Osaka region will be sold to the private sector to help trim Kansai airport’s JPY1.3 trillion debts, according to the plan. The merger and privatisation plan indicates the government's willingness to streamline management of the nation's 98 airports.
