Delta opts to flesh out its 2016 European network with new flights from Minneapolis, Detroit and RDU
Delta Air Lines is branching out in its 2016 trans-Atlantic schedule, bolstering service from its lower-profile hubs in Minneapolis and Detroit. It is also introducing service from Raleigh-Durham to Paris, having initially mooted the route eight years ago.
The airline is playing to its positions of strength with the addition of trans-Atlantic services from its hubs in the interior of the US, which should allow Delta to both tap a large pool of local passengers in the metro region of Minneapolis and Detroit and also garner connecting traffic from US midwest spoke routes by touting one stop connections to popular European destinations and hubs of partner airlines.
Delta has been growing in Raleigh at a solid clip during the last couple of years, increasing the number of point to point markets it operates from the airport. The introduction of service to Paris is the next phase of that build up, and a key win for Raleigh-Durham International Airport, which has been working to enlarge its roster of long-haul services.
Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic continue to steadily grow their trans-Atlantic joint venture with the expansion of markets outside the more competitive routes of London Heathrow to New York and Los Angeles. With the feed both airlines bring to the partnership, routes that would be unviable on a standalone basis are becoming promising.
The latest addition is a new service from Delta’s smaller Salt Lake City hub to London Heathrow to be launched during the summer travel season in 2016. Delta is also launching new service from JFK to Edinburgh in conjunction with Virgin Atlantic during that time, resulting in new competition to American Airlines.
Delta and Virgin Atlantic have quickly leveraged Virgin’s strong position at Heathrow to create an expansive trans-Atlantic network between the US and London, enabling the two carriers to close the gap with market leaders American and British Airways. At a bit more than a year and a half old, the joint venture is still in its early stages. But the rapid network changes initiated by Delta and Virgin Atlantic show the airlines are working to quickly spool up to the desired level of maturity for their tie-up.
Air France-KLM's 6M2015 passenger traffic figures indicate RPK growth of just 0.7% for the group, compared with 5.8% for IAG and 3.6% for the Lufthansa Group. With a passenger load factor of 84.2% for the period, Air France-KLM is filling more of its seats than IAG (79.3%) and the Lufthansa Group (78.3%). Its capacity discipline is welcome, but has been forced on it by successive losses.
Moreover, its poor financial track record highlights the challenges faced by Air France-KLM in making a profit from these seats - and cost cutting remains a priority. Key to this is labour productivity improvement. A recent agreement signed by KLM pilots is a positive step in this regard, by contrast with ongoing deadlock between Air France and its pilot union.
In this report, we consider Air France-KLM's main strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
We suggest that Air France-KLM should be more positive in developing commercial relationships with Etihad and Chinese partner airlines and more aggressive with the growth of its LCC subsidiary Transavia (if pilots allow it).
Philadelphia International Airport seems to be holding its own within the combined network of American and US Airways, with most of its long-haul service available prior to the merger remaining intact.
After the two airlines decided to merge, questions surfaced about whether Philadelphia would maintain its status as a gateway to Europe given its proximity to legacy American’s hub at New York JFK. But the airports cater to different markets, and US Airways/American has a lock on several markets from Philadelphia to Europe.
Similar to other US airports lacking service to Asia, trans-Pacific flights are a major target for Philadelphia as plans are under way for a runway extension to support aircraft carrying more fuel. New flights to Asia are not on the immediate horizon, but in the short term, Philadelphia travellers have efficient one-stop service through Doha with Qatar’s service from the airport.
Vancouver International Airport charted impressive growth in 2014, leveraging and solidifying its position as Canada’s second largest airport. Vancouver is buoyed by its leading position as the country’s gateway to Asia; but in 2015 it has also secured new service from Air France and Aeromexico.
As it celebrates solid passenger numbers, Vancouver also faces growing competitive pressure from nearby Seattle now that Delta is quickly building the airport into its main gateway to Asia. But a recent expansion of Canada’s transit without visa programme should help Vancouver face the increased competition by giving the airport the potential to eventually connect travellers from Asia to Central and South America.
Overall Vancouver seems well positioned to meet its growth targets, which include handling 25 million passengers annually by 2020, a nearly 29% jump over a record number of customers travelling through the airport in 2014.
Indonesian flag airline Garuda Indonesia is resuming international expansion as it takes its last batch of four 777-300ERs and acquires 30 787-9s along with 30 A350s. The expansion comes as Garuda's outlook improves after a challenging 2014, which led to a restructuring of its international network and a hiatus from international growth.
The additional 777-300ERs will support international capacity growth in the near-term, including more capacity to Saudi Arabia in 2H2015 and new services to Frankfurt and Paris in 2016. The 787-9s and A350s will partially be used to replace Garuda’s fleet of A330s from 2020 but will also enable further growth of the carrier’s medium and long-haul networks.
Meanwhile Garuda is adjusting its widebody fleet plan by opting not to include a first class cabin in its additional 777s, although at least for now it will maintain a first class product in its original fleet of six 777-300ERs. Garuda also plans to remove the business class cabin on six A330s, giving it an all-economy product similar to the A330s operated by low-cost rivals Indonesia AirAsia X and Lion Air.
