Interjet’s international passengers soar with new US transborder push against Mexican and US rivals

19-Sep-2016 11:45 PM

International passenger numbers for the Mexican low cost airline Interjet skyrocketed more than 50% in the first seven months of 2016, reflecting the launch of more than 10 new international routes during that period, and with US transborder routes representing the bulk of Interjet’s international expansion.

Interjet is no doubt positioning itself to seize on opportunities created by a new, finalised bilateral between the US and Mexico that lifts restrictions on the number of airlines operating on specific routes between the two countries. Interjet’s rival Volaris has also grown its US transborder passengers in 2016, but it has a different route profile from that of Interjet. Generally, Interjet is subject to higher levels of competition on some of its transborder routes than Volaris, given that Interjet and Volaris offer different products to their passengers.

During the past two to three years Interjet and Volaris have been essentially tied for the coveted position of Mexico’s second largest domestic airline. But for the seven months ending Jul-2017 Volaris logged 22% domestic passenger growth, while Interjet’s passenger numbers inched down slightly, resulting in Volaris assuming full command of the second place ranking.

Hainan Airlines to Las Vegas: more international flights to follow as Southwest starts partnerships

9-Aug-2016 12:45 PM

Hainan Airlines' Beijing-Las Vegas 787 service commencing in Dec-2016 will end Korean Air's tenure as the only Asian airline in Las Vegas. Las Vegas is arguably the largest feasible unserved North American market for Hainan. Delivery of over 30 787-9s in coming years means that Hainan will need to establish new markets. The route tests the booking data that airlines and airports rely on: Las Vegas believes airlines have shied away from serving the city and that this is misguided – because Las Vegas' international visitors are not represented, since they often take multi-city itineraries and thus do not appear as a Las Vegas international passenger. Las Vegas wants to prise its international passengers away from transit hubs.

Hainan's presence will initially be about half of Korean Air's, which was upped days prior to Hainan's announcement. Yet this may be the best outcome for Korean. A Chinese service was inevitable, but Las Vegas had to wait for political sensitivities to cool since Las Vegas flights would not have been timely as China's anti-corruption and austerity campaigns unfolded. Hainan brings enough presence to deter more competition in the short term, yet its narrow focus on the outbound Beijing market leaves Korean Air with many opportunities around Asia. Further international growth for Las Vegas is likely after McCarran airport's largest operator, Southwest Airlines, is ready to partner with other airlines in 2018.

Mexico-US transborder airline market Part 1: Interjet and Volaris capitalise on new US opportunities

23-Jul-2016 11:21 AM

Mexican low cost airlines Volaris and Interjet are engaged in a significant transborder push in 2016. Combined, the airlines will launch a dozen routes to the US as an upcoming new bilateral lifts restrictions on the number of airlines operating routes between the US and Mexico. With many countries in Latin and Central America experiencing economic weakness, the US is a safer bet for expansion in the near term.

Volaris and Interjet target different passenger segments, and the airlines have little overlap on the new flights that they are launching to the US. Volaris cites numerous route opportunities in the US transborder market, and has grown rapidly in that space during the past several years. Interjet has grown more slowly but has quickly broadened its US reach in 2016, entering some markets that already have ample service.

Although US airlines still dominate the transborder market Mexican airlines are working to chip away at the sizeable gap between them, growing their international passenger numbers 10% year-on-year for the first five months of 2016.

(This is Part 1 of two reports examining the Mexico-US transborder market. Part 2 will focus on the proposed joint venture between Aeromexico and Delta).

Frontier Airlines and its network challenges: starting and leaving routes as US ULCC dynamics shift

14-Jul-2016 8:00 PM

US ULCC Frontier continues to make numerous changes to its network. In early 2016 it unveiled a network blitz, tabling 42 new routes that start in Apr-2016 and continue through Jun-2016, including a return to the smaller market of Colorado Springs. It also joined Allegiant Air in injecting some ULCC competition into Pittsburgh, and it continued expansion from Orlando International airport.

At the same time Frontier has opted to reduce its footprint in Atlanta after joining fellow ULCC Spirit Airlines in making a push from the airport in 2015. Atlanta is a market dominated by two of the large US network airlines – Delta and Southwest. It is not clear whether that has bearing on Frontier’s evaluation of its strategy in Atlanta but Orlando is largely an O&D market, which could be better suited for Frontier’s ULCC operations.

The only conclusion that can be drawn from many of Frontier’s network moves is that no distinctive pattern emerges. There are major competitors in every market that it is leaving, but that is also the case for the remaining routes the airline is serving from Atlanta. Despite the shifts by Frontier, a small ULCC presence remains in one of the world’s busiest airports.

US airlines use JVs to expand Asia presence, but dissenting voices: CAPA Americas Summit (VIDEO)

9-May-2016 4:55 PM

The year 2016 marks the third consecutive year of high single-digit growth between Asia and North America, and the third year of approximately 20% annual growth between China and the United States. Between 2012 and 2016, trans-Pacific flights have grown from 150 a day to 193 while those just between China and the US have doubled from 21 to 42. One in five trans-Pacific flights is travelling between China and the US, and one in four from China to Canada/US.

Although demand is strong, capacity has arguably grown slightly faster. This pressure, combined with wanting to secure a strategic foothold, has the result that airlines on both sides are considering deeper partnerships, including joint ventures. CAPA's recent Americas Aviation Summit held in Las Vegas brought together airlines representing the spectrum of trans-Pacific alliance developments: ANA, which has a joint venture with United and wants to expand it to include Air Canada; Air China, which wants closer ties to its Star partner United, and equity partner Cathay Pacific; Korean Air, which has been aggressively courted by Delta; and Hainan Airlines, which is seeking a partnership solution. Hainan opposes any JVs that foreign airlines may seek to establish with state-owned airlines, such as Air China. Hainan's worries of protectionism could gain ground with the US DoT, which permits JVs so long as there is open skies and no barriers to entry. US-China open skies is one of the most pressing aeropolitical matters.

Allegiant Air weathers the prickly dynamics of a low fuel environment. Expects steady growth ahead

8-May-2016 10:27 PM

Although Allegiant Air has tweaked its unique business model during the last couple of years to capitalise on vacancies in medium-sized markets, opportunities remain for the airline in the more typical small markets that it links to its large leisure destinations. Its growth strategy is to operate a mix of those smaller routes and continue to add medium-sized markets when the opportunity arises.

The company may find increasing competition from US ULCCs that contemplate entering larger markets, but Allegiant believes that it can continue to grow in markets that Spirit and Frontier do not find attractive, and also that it has other structural advantages over those airlines.  

Allegiant has not escaped the unit revenue pressure plaguing US airlines, but similarly to those airlines the company believes that it can achieve improvement in that metric during 2016. As it has previously noted, some of the revenue weakness is driven by Allegiant’s own growth which, the company stresses, is earnings accretive.
