Allegiant Air continues its expansion from Cinncinnati as smaller airlines seize on hub de-valuation
Allegiant Air continues to capitalise on US major airline consolidation through a continued push from Cincinnati, a hub with diminishing importance within Delta Air Lines’ network.
By late 2014 Allegiant is set to offer roughly 18 weekly flights from Cincinnati, and has indicated the airport could become a base for the airline. It is a rapid plan of expansion for Allegiant, which only initiated service from Cincinnati in early 2014.
Cincinnati is a unique opportunity for Allegiant, which largely shies away from major expansion at network airline hubs. But the market seems to be responding to Allegiant’s low-fare leisure product that for now does not seem to be sufficient to annoy Delta into a response.
More than two years after declaring plans to resurrect the PEOPLExpress name, executives are now planning a Jun-2014 launch from Newport News Williamsburg International Airport.
After the airline’s self-styled seasoned executives underestimated the effort and complexity of obtaining certification from the US Department of Transportation (DoT), PEOPLExpress is working with Las Vegas-based Vision Airlines to introduce service after flirting with the purchase of charter carrier XTRA Airways during 2013.
Without explicitly declaring itself an ultra low-cost carrier (ULCC), it seems PEOPLExpress is taking pages from Spirit’s playbook in offering cheap base fares and charging for other aspects of travel. It will be largely shielded from large network airlines on its initial crop of routes; but limiting its exposure to larger carriers does not alone guarantee the airline’s chances of success.
The Aeroflot Group is the leading airline group in the Russian Federation by some distance. Its airlines have strong market positions at its hubs across the country, which extends from Europe to within a short distance of China, Korea and Japan. The group has been profitable for over twenty years and its passenger traffic is growing at double digit rates.
Its market position has benefited from a government “national champion” policy, through the 2011 acquisition of a number of state-owned regional carriers. Nevertheless, its 2012 profits were diluted by losses in the newly acquired subsidiaries.
In an attempt to address this, its two carriers in Russia’s Far East are to be merged. Moreover, the major European country with the lowest LCC penetration looks as if it may soon have its very own no-frills airline after Aeroflot’s recent announcement that it plans to establish a new LCC subsidiary.
Both Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister (soon to be President again?) Vladimir Putin have in the last week spoken of plans to build a network of regional airports in Russia (Medvedev) and of making “an infrastructure, transport breakthrough” by modernising its road system and boosting the capacity of airports, railroads and sea terminals (Putin). These are grand schemes, but could they realistically be completed without increasingly resorting to the private sector, at home or abroad?
As a tough year for the aviation industry comes to a close, a review of EBITDA margins achieved by a variety of airport operators globally reveals some surprising results.
Latvian flag carrier and dominant regional airline airBaltic has announced plans to serve more destinations over the forthcoming northern winter and to offer additional flights to improve connections for travellers flying via northern hub Riga to/from more than 70 destinations in Europe, CIS and the Middle East. Between them, Riga Airport and airBaltic threaten to become a major force not only in the small Baltic States but in Scandinavia, Russia and the CIS states, the Middle East and further a-field. AirBaltic already carries over 60% of all passenger traffic at Riga.
