Lion Group is planning major expansion in Australia using its full service brand Batik Air. The group’s Australia operation could grow from one route currently to five routes by the end 2017, and potentially 10 routes by the end of 2018.
Lion Group launched services to Australia in late 2015 when its Malaysian full service airline, Malindo Air, launched services from Kuala Lumpur to Perth. Malindo is planning to adopt the Batik Malaysia brand in 2017 and expand its Australia network.
Meanwhile Indonesia’s Batik Air is preparing to launch services to Australia, initially with flights from Bali to Perth. The fast-growing Indonesian airline secured Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) approval in late 2016 and could eventually serve several destinations in Australia from both Bali and Jakarta.
Australia-Philippines market faces overcapacity concerns as Cebu Pacific, PAL plan further expansion
Passenger traffic between Australia and the Philippines grew by 39% in 2015, making it Australia’s fastest growing international market. The Australia-Philippines market is poised for more rapid growth driven by expansion at Cebu Pacific Air and Philippine Airlines (PAL).
PAL is planning to use its new A321neo fleet to launch new nonstop flights to Brisbane and potentially add a second frequency to Sydney. Cebu Pacific plans to launch service to Melbourne as it expands its A330-300 fleet.
However, overcapacity is a major concern. Cebu Pacific’s entrance has stimulated demand but impacted load factors and yields. In 2015 the average load factor on Australia-Philippines flights was less than 67%, including a dismal 60% at PAL and only 64% at Cebu Pacific.
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer: over recent years Air New Zealand has transformed its long haul network – and New Zealand's aviation market – by turning one competitor after another into a joint venture partner. Air NZ's latest is a revenue-sharing JV with United Airlines, to come into force on 01-Jul-2016 when United resumes New Zealand services.
The JV follows link-ups between Air NZ and Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Air China. Yet this is not just another JV: Air NZ-United will be the largest, accounting for 25% of Auckland's long haul seat capacity. It will be twice the size of the Air NZ-Singapore Airlines JV. In total, 80% of Air NZ's long haul capacity from NZ will be under JVs, with the balance in monopoly markets.
Cebu Pacific plans to continue expanding its international network in 2016 as it launches services to the US and adds a second destination in Australia. The Philippine LCC added its fourth destination in Japan on 17-Dec-2015 and has launched four long haul destinations since Sep-2014, driving a 27% increase in RPKs through the first three quarters of 2015.
The Philippine carrier is again projecting double digit ASK growth in 2016, driven by expansion of its long haul operation. But seat growth will be a modest 2% to 4%, its lowest rate of expansion for several years, as Cebu Pacific is not planning expansion of its jet fleet.
Cebu Pacific has traditionally been the most conservative and rational of Southeast Asia’s main LCCs. The group’s flexible fleet plan and disciplined approach to seat capacity growth is a major strength.
Emirates, boosted by Jetstar Asia, will become the largest foreign full service airline in Singapore
Emirates is poised to overtake Cathay Pacific as the largest foreign full service airline in the Singapore market from early 2016 as it upgauges two of its seven daily Singapore flights to the A380. Emirates will have almost 42,000 weekly seats in Singapore in Mar-2016, a 12% increase over its current capacity and a 29% increase compared to Mar-2014.
Emirates has been a key contributor to growth in Singapore over the last two years during an otherwise very slow period for Changi Airport. The expansion would not have been possible without a new and fast growing partnership with Singapore-based LCC Jetstar Asia.
Jetstar Asia has enabled Emirates to use Singapore as a regional hub for Southeast Asia. Emirates already had hub status at Singapore with three fifth freedom destinations along with four daily non-stop flights from its main hub in Dubai.
Singapore Airlines' (SIA) long-haul low-cost subsidiary Scoot is preparing for a momentous 2015. The year will begin with the first 787 delivery and include the launch of approximately seven new destinations as Scoot’s fleet expands from six to 10 aircraft.
Scoot unveiled plans on 9-Dec-2014 to launch services to Melbourne, its first route announcement in over a year. But Melbourne, which will be added in Nov-2015, will be the last (or one of the last) of several new destinations launched during 2015.
While delivery of Scoot’s first 787 has been pushed back to Jan-2015, there have been no changes to the rest of the delivery schedule. Scoot plans to take 10 of the 20 787s it has on order in 2015. Its existing fleet of six 777-200s will be phased out after six or seven 787s are delivered.
