Airport pairs: Western Europe-US shows the value of open skies as routes and new entry proliferate
For Western Europe there is no bigger long haul market than North America. In terms of the number of airport pairs between the countries of Western Europe and long haul destination countries, connectivity to the United States dominates. There are more direct routes between Western Europe and the US than there are between Western Europe and the whole of Asia Pacific.
This report presents high level data on the numbers of airport pairs between each Western European country and the US and how these number have changed. EU-US liberalisation in 2008 has stimulated growth in the number of direct connections, although the global economic downturn impeded this for a while. However, the additional routes have not been spread evenly across Western European countries.
Since 2010, additional route numbers from Western Europe to the US have been greatest from the largest markets – the UK and the US – and from the smaller countries, particularly Ireland, Iceland and Norway. Countries in between, including France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands, have hardly added any new US routes at all.
India-Philippines: rapid growth, A321neo technology leads to Cebu Pacific-PAL traffic rights battle
Direct flights in the fast growing India-Philippines market are likely to resume by 2018, with service from at least one Philippine carrier. Cebu Pacific Air, Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Philippines AirAsia are all seeking traffic rights to serve India and are keen to serve Delhi.
PAL suspended nonstop service to Delhi 2011, and one-stop services via Bangkok in 2013. The Manila-Delhi market quickly proved to be too small back in 2011 to support nonstop services, but it has since more than doubled in size, making the route more viable. New generation narrowbody technology also significantly improves the route’s prospect.
PAL and Cebu Pacific would both use the A321neo on Manila-Delhi. Philippines AirAsia could potentially use the A320neo to operate the route nonstop in the future, but is initially seeking rights via Bangkok using A320ceos. The Cebu Pacific and PAL nonstop proposals are more likely to sway Philippine authorities, who will soon have to decide on how to allocate the only seven weekly Philippines-India frequencies available under the two countries' air services agreement.
