Croatia Airlines is confident it can return to profitability in 2012 after significantly narrowing its losses this year despite high fuel prices. The Croatian flag carrier is banking that its future fleet plan, which focusses on replacing three A320s with four A319s, will result in further improvements in profitability as it will be able to better match capacity with demand. New routes to the east are also planned – including Moscow, St Petersburg and Sofia – to balance a network that is now primarily focussed on Western Europe.
Croatia Airlines, which launched services in 1991 just as Croatia declared independence from the former Yugoslavia, has incurred losses every year since posting a breakeven result in 2007. Croatia Airlines CEO Srećko Šimunović expects the carrier to end 2011 with a loss of EUR9 million (USD12 million).
Rumours emanating from Croatia suggest the US-Canadian ADC&HAS joint venture is emerging as front runner for the concession to operate Zagreb’s Pleso Airport even though it does not satisfy one of the criteria demanded of potential concessionaires.
Almost two years after the privatisation by lease of Chicago’s Midway Airport fell through, 2011 will be a ‘make or break’ year for those who would like to see more US airports attracting private capital and management (and there are plenty that don’t). Conversely, there are signs that at least one US airport operator is looking to Europe, possibly in an investment capacity.
Croatia’s Zagreb Pleso Airport is reported to have received interest from Frankfurt, Zurich and Vienna airports to become concessionaires for the construction of the airport’s new terminal. The Croatian Government plans to announce the tender once necessary documentation is completed on 15-Oct-2010.
Wizz Air is going against the industry trend of capacity cuts and network and fleet contractions as it continues its rapid expansion recently, signing a Memorandum of Understanding for 50 A320s valued at USD3.8 billion at the Paris Air Show this month. The LCC’s most recent aircraft order takes its total order for the aircraft to 132 and well on its way to realising its target of doubling its fleet to 42 aircraft by 2011 and 82 aircraft by 2014.
Delays at European airports reached their worst level last year since 2001, highlighting the need for urgent ATM reforms, according to the Association of European Airlines (AEA).
