Southwest Airlines aims to realise its goal of dismantling AirTran’s hub in Atlanta in Nov-2013 as a means to bolster local passengers at the airport in the hopes of improving Atlanta’s performance. The declaration that Atlanta will officially become a point-to-point operation completes efforts by Southwest to eliminate unprofitable flow-through routes and concentrate on areas where it, along with AirTran, has relative strength.
After completing its acquisition of AirTran in May-2011, Southwest set its sights on network optimisation between the two carriers. The exercise essentially resulted in many small markets being eliminated from AirTran’s network and Southwest’s determination that Atlanta would perform more effectively in the combined network through the adoption of Southwest’s point-to-point route management strategy.
Ambitious plans by upstart People Express for a late summer launch appear to be fading as the airline is still awaiting requisite US government approvals to inaugurate flights from Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport. The delay comes despite the carrier's management having extensive airline experience, which should lead to understanding the intricacies and complexities of gaining certification in order to start business. People Express’s vice-chairman William Stockbridge was involved in the launch of the original carrier and served as CEO of defunct trans-Atlantic business carrier Maxjet. The missed launch date means People Express will likely debut after the high season for travel in the US, creating an immediate challenge as its operations get underway during a period of weaker demand with a business model that has a long path to tread in order to gain credibility and achieve profitability.
The latest version of People Express made its official marketing splash in Feb-2012 after starting its pre-launch business period with USD5 million in capital, which the airline felt was adequate to cover expenses associated with that phase of its business. At the time it unveiled its plans, the carrier stated its goal was to inaugurate flights during the late summer of 2012.
