IB Increases MAD-GRU To 10 Weekly A343/A346

Starting 26 March 2006 IB will increase MAD-GRU flights from daily to 10 weekly flights A340-300/A340-600. The 3 additional frequencies will operate on Wed, Sat and Sun.

IB new schedules for GRU:

MAD-GRU:

--3--67 IB6825 MAD.03:00PM - GRU.06:35PM A343/346
1234567 IB6821 MAD.00:30AM - GRU.05:05AM A343/A346

GRU-MAD :

--3--67 IB6820 GRU.08:15PM - MAD.11:10AM A343/A346
1234567 IB6824 GRU.03:20PM - MAD.06:15AM A332/A346

IB also operates daily MAD-GIG A343/A346. Total IB frequencies MAD-Brazil will therefore increase to 17 weekly flights.

IB's increase in flights to GRU comes in the wake of AF increased capacity to GRU from 10 weekly flights 12 weekly flights.

Here are the current operational frequencies Spain-Brazil:

IB MAD-GRU 10 weekly A343/346
IB MAD-GIG 7 weekly A343/346
RG MAD-GRU 7 weekly B763 - codeshare JK
PU MAD-GIG 3 weekly B763 - codeshare RG (continue onwards to MVD)
UX MAD-SSA 4 weekly B763
NM MAD-FOR 2 weekly A333 (continue onwards to EZE)
NM BCN-FOR 1 weekly A333 (continue onwards to SCL) Starting June/06

TOTAL WEEKLY FLIGHTS SPAIN-BRAZIL = 34 weekly flights

Not only Varig, but TAM should worry as well.

In general, it is great news to see the expansion, although largely centred in GRU. It is high time for the Brazilian Government to carry out a massive expansion in GRU. The subway link GRU-downtown is also long overdue.

It seems indeed that LH is rowing against the flow, while all major airlines are upgrading GRU LH, decided to cut one of its two daily flights. I'm sure LH will pay a very high price for this decision.

Very true!!

Despite IB operates with high loads in flights to GRU and GIG, wouldn't it have anything to do with British Airways' impossibility in increasing their frequencies?

Seems that Airlines are trying to use more and more the GRU slots around 8-9 PM. Interesting the day light MAD-GRU (was MAD-GIG)

Infraero does not allow Air Madrid to fly to GIG and now allows IB to fly more to GRU... seems that the government does not like Rio very much.

Spanish carriers were flying regularly to Brazil (GIG), but registered as charter and there were no more frequencies in the bilateral — which, I believe, has just been reviewed.
Brazilian government cannot refuse any airline request for flights if the it satisfies the air Treaty's criteria. This is an agreement between two countries and Brazil would be then disregarding it (ilegally) just by saying that the airline is not eligible for some reason out of such agreement, i.e. "we don't like Rio that much".
By the way, I think INFRAERO doesn't hold any authority to allow / refuse flights requests.

They don't need it anymore since TAP's entry into Star. Germans are now the largest group of European passengers on TP's flights to Brazil, after the Portuguese.

Really ---  Yeah sure Latin America is not just only Brazil. LH does not have a clue of what to do with Latin America. TAP's presence in Brazil has always been strong, but that's just because of the market (and ties) that there's between Portugal and Brazil. Really, take a look at it, LH lost all of its business travelers to Air France because it axed the FRA-EZE-SCL to make it FRA-GRU-EZE/SCL. They really don't have a clue of what to do. And now, this is a lost market for them. Air France has won every inch of their business flyers. Lufthansa is the only one axing operations at GRU - but this is because of the poor performance of its routes. Adding the 2nd GRU daily, may have been good for Brazil, but it certainly was devastating for their Chilean and Argentine operations. Now, they are pulling out of SCL and codesharing with LX/SR on that leg.

Hola Felipe!

Are you sure this deal is with GIG and not with Air Madrid? Remember they have rejected Air Madrid from increasing more frequencies into Brazil.

I've heard this rumor over the last couple of days. . . is it true that the Federal Government is TRULY considering in giving out 8th freedom rights to NON Brazilian companies? I mean, that's outrageous, and confirms the clear anti-RG position this administration has.

I'm appalled by it.

Ola Brasuca, estou bem e em Miami tirando uns dias pra "refill my batteries"

Brasuca, the question is that, Air Madrid can fly to GIG, but without rights for Buenos Aires and/or Santiago, buttttttttt ... if Air Madrid flies to FOR, the government can "grant" rights for EZE and SCL. Also Infraero creates a lot of problems for new airlines (info from an employee of Infraero) to start ops at Rio/São Paulo nowadays.

Our government is trying to drive all new flights out of Rio/São Paulo !

Do you know that RG receive some incentives to fly GIG-GRU-IGU-ASU instead of GRU-ASU ? And what to say about GRU-CWB-VVI instead of GRU-VVI ? Yes, they will change both routes effective march 06!

Hi Gaston !

I'm sure, they confirm this in an interview this week at O GLOBO newspaper (Rio). They tried to fly again to Rio but if they decide in favor of GIG, no Freedom rights for EZE or SCL will be granted to them.

It was the first mistake of the brand new ANAC (National Agency for Civil Aviation) and its president. He made a speech trying to sell the idea of give 8th Freedom Rights. But he was forced by Varig, Tam, Gol, BRA, Ocean Air, Civil society, Infraero, and some congressmans, and confirmed two or three days ago that it will not happen!
Very CRAZY idea, while i personally love competition, it's clear that foreigners will try to take part on the best routes like Rio-São Paulo.

Although LH has to build on synergies with TP's 40 weekly flights to Brazil, it simply cannot substitute for LH flights and FRA hub connections. Take into accunt that a lot of LH pax in Brazil connect to many destinations TP does not serve, especially in Asia.

It was a big mistake LH decision to cut capacity in GRU. In fact, LH has been doing a lot of mistakes in the region: GRU, GIG, EZE, SCL, CCS. It will pay a heavy price for this and it will be difficult to come back.

LH already stated that the second daily flight FRA-GRU will axed only for 8 months, and resumed by the end of 2006. This is very poor marketing strategy. Many pax will simply switch to AF/KL, BA, IB, etc, while also growing further their operations in GRU. Detail: LH will cut the second daily flight to GRU exactly during the World Cup.

Yet I cannot understand how an airline such as LH does not fly EZE nonstop. LH has taken many wrong decisions in the region.

Correct. And now LH will fly SCL with LX-operated aircraft, confusing pax and showing how poor is their marketing.

Nothing about it...it won't happen.

IB has said loud and clear that the A380 is too big for them. Yes, sometimes they could use an aircraft "slightly bigger" than the A346 on certain routes in certain days, but nothing more than that. Destinations such as EZE or MEX are doing fine with 2 daily A346s. In 10 years...who knows, but currently the A380 is not part of Iberia's plans and it would not make sense at all to get a couple of them just for 2 destinations, which btw on low season can show LOW load factors from time to time.

The 747-8 would fit better, but I don't think it will hapen either.

MEX does not even get that many seats. I believe IB flies 11x weekly to MEX using mostly A343's with some A346's thrown into the mix. And with AM getting 772ER's with 34 in. pitch and PTV's in Y, IB will be hard-pressed to improve its service before adding more capacity.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Eddie,

I doubt IB will receive any pressure with these initial 772ERs. They pose no threat to IB, since IB is operating bigger planes and the 777s would only be able to go daily if you dedicate both to the route.

Still, it's an increase in capacity and a mixture between 772s and 762s would do fine with the route.

The real threat, I think, will begin as soon as AM starts getting more 772ERs, to be able to sustain a daily service with 772ERs. So, IB may start putting A340-600s now --- or just leave it like this, for the time being.

You are absolutely right about that. I need to clarify my point because I did not mean pressure so much in the sense of demand-supply because as you say, AM will only get 2 frames initially, but rather pressure in the sense of quality and preference. IB could start to lose some pax to AM because of the better service and inflight experience.

Nope. Nothing has been said at the moment. IB is still waiting for 2 more A346s to be delivered this coming spring and the 18 A343s currently in service are still quite young to make the company's BoD think of an alternative.

LH is still one of the most profitable airlines in Europe. they must be doing something right. If they've been pulling back from S.America and Brazil it's because they think they can make more money somewhere else. In most cases if the choice is between S.America or some Asian destination, the choice is a no-brainer. More so if they can code-share on those flights with one of their Star Alliance partners. The money and future growth opportunity is in Asia.
