Competition in the Indonesia-Singapore market will intensify in 3Q2013 with Singapore Airlines (SIA) adding capacity while its regional subsidiary SilkAir and low-cost affiliate Tiger Airways each launch services to two new Indonesian destinations. Garuda Indonesia, Tiger affiliate Mandala Airlines and Jetstar are all planning to follow SIA, SilkAir and Tiger in adding capacity in the dynamic Indonesia-Singapore market.
The surge in capacity is in part made possible by a newly expanded bilateral agreement between the two countries. Slot constraints, however, threaten to impede growth for some carriers operating in the market and make it difficult to use newly awarded traffic rights. For example, Indonesia AirAsia has already been set back by slot constraints at Changi Airport in attempts to launch three new routes to Singapore.
This is the second part of a report looking at the Indonesia-Singapore market and the impact of the recently expanded bilateral between the two countries. The first part looked at the Jakarta-Singapore route, which accounts for 55% of Indonesia-Singapore capacity and has not seen growth in recent years due to bilateral restrictions.
The other 13 routes currently connecting Singapore and Indonesia have not generally been constrained by the bilateral. But there are huge opportunities to expand capacity on these smaller routes, driven by Indonesia’s rapidly growing economy and Changi’s position as the leading international hub for secondary cities in nearby Indonesia.
Leading LCC groups – including AirAsia, Lion and Tiger – as well as full-service carriers, led by Singapore Airlines regional subsidiary SilkAir, are likely to launch new routes connecting Indonesia with Singapore as well as add capacity in existing markets.
Garuda Indonesia is planning further domestic expansion by launching a turboprop operation in 2013 that will be used alongside its new regional jet fleet to access Indonesia’s smaller but fast-growing markets. Expansion on trunk routes is also expected by redeploying A330 widebodies from international routes, which will allow for more efficient use of gates and slots at Garuda’s congested Jakarta hub until the government moves forward with a plan for expanding the existing airport and constructing a new airport at Indonesia’s booming capital.
Garuda and most of Indonesia’s carriers see huge near-term opportunities in the domestic market, where demand continues to grow at high double-digit levels on the back of rapid economic growth. Indonesian carriers also expect the regional international market to expand fast, albeit more slowly than domestic, while growth on long-haul routes will continue to be relatively modest for the time being.
Indonesia’s potential for more rapid aviation growth is expected to fuel a surge in new aircraft orders beyond those announced at this week’s Paris Air Show.
