A subtle shift is occurring in the Mexican domestic market as market leader Interjet is opting to cede some domestic traffic to other airlines, most notably to fellow low-cost carrier Volaris. Interjet has been focusing on building up international traffic while Volaris has concentrated a significant portion of its growth in 2012 domestically, largely through a push from Guadalajara.
Interjet’s international push has centred mainly in US markets and has resulted in Volaris and Aeromexico ceding their international market share as Interjet moves to balance its network. Interjet now has an almost 10% share of Mexico's international market (excluding foreign carriers), compared to only a 1% share a year ago. Interjet now serves six international gateways, all of which have been launched over the last 15 months. A seventh international destination will be added in Oct-2012 when Orange County in California will become the carrier's four destination in the US after Miami, New York and San Antonio.
Executives at Southwest Airlines are remaining cautious even as the carrier recorded a healthy 42% increase in 2Q2012 profits on a nearly 12% rise in revenue. But the carrier’s cost creep continued throughout the first six months of 2012, and Southwest warns of rising unit costs throughout the remainder of the year. The anticipated cost pressure coupled with uncertain domestic economic trends have led Southwest to remain subdued in its outlook even as demand and pricing continue to remain strong.
Southwest’s 2Q2012 performance was strong across all the key financial metrics as net income increased from USD161 million to USD228 million year-over-year. Operating revenues increased from USD4 billion to nearly USD5 billion, aided by a 5% rise in average fares to USD150. The carrier also reported a impressive 122% jump in operating income during 2Q2012 to USD407 million. Southwest’s performance during the quarter was a marked improvement from the USD18 million net loss and 90% drop in operating income the carrier recorded in 1Q2012.
A first quarter loss at Southwest Airlines was accompanied by a better-than-expected result in the carrier’s unit cost performance driven in part by labour productivity improvements. The carrier is striking a cautiously optimistic tone regarding the rest of the year, indicating it should record a favourable financial performance if fuel prices remain at current levels. But until Southwest completes the integration of AirTran Airways into its operations by 2014, the carrier will be constrained in reaching its full revenue potential.
Favourable gains on the settling of certain fuel hedge contracts helped Southwest to record a first quarter profit of USD98 million. But excluding special items the carrier’s loss was USD18 million compared with a USD20 million profit the year prior. The airline’s operating income tumbled USD100 million to USD10 million as the carrier recorded fuel and oil expense of USD1.5 billion, a 45.5% rise from 1Q2011. On a combined basis with AirTran, Southwest’s operating revenue was USD86 million.
