Airline Industry Analysis & Research from anna.aero
Vivaaerobus has been operating in the dynamic Mexican market for just over two years. How many passengers have been carried and at what load factor? Which routes does it operate from Monterrey and which has it dropped? And in what unusual way has it copied Ryanair?
Despite easyJet’s best efforts Air France still dominates both major Parisian airports. How does it split its operations between CDG and Orly and what competition does it face on domestic routes? Which country markets are best served from CDG and which international routes does it operate from Orly?
Ryanair must have broken some kind of record this week by single-handedly starting 67 new routes. Which countries benefited most and how many routes does that make in total? Which new routes started with the highest weekly frequency?
Lufthansa and Lufthansa Italia started 10 new routes this week. Lufthansa is taking on easyJet on more routes from Milan Malpensa (including domestic ones) but what role has new subsidiary bmi played in the airline’s new routes?
With a fleet of 11 Airbus’ Aigle Azur serves North Africa and Portugal from various French airports. Passenger numbers have doubled in the last four years and new destinations have been added including Bamako in Mali.
Porter’s parent company also owns the only terminal at its base airport. With 10 Q400s it now serves two destinations in Canada and two in the US with high frequency flights. Where else might it be going next?
As Vueling is about to merge with former local rival clickair we look at how the airline’s network has evolved in recent times. Drastic cutbacks were made last year but which airports suffered most? Which countries has the airline studiously avoided and what’s happening in Ibiza this summer?
SAS has handled around 25 million passengers for each of the last five years. That looks set to change dramatically this year as major network cutbacks are made. Which long-haul flights have been axed and which have survived, for now? What are the network aims of the new “Core SAS” plan?
Italian LCC MyAir has struggled to develop a coherent network strategy since it launched four years ago. Many routes have been started and stopped again after short periods. What are its current strengths and what aircraft does it have at its disposal? A base at little-used Foggia is an interesting recent development.
Vietnam Airlines trebles passengers in last decade; currently serves just three European destinations but not London
From two main bases at Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam Airlines operates a wide-range of domestic and regional services. But it only serves five long-haul destinations. Which ones? Having ordered both Boeing 787s and Airbus A350s the airline is hedging its bets for the future.
Apparently Allegiant Air doesn’t like being written about. Sorry guys, but your network development is much too interesting for us to ignore. We provide a handy file summarising the airline’s 130 routes serving 70 airports this summer including Los Angeles.
