JQ Considering Yped For International Flights

Today's Adelaide Advertiser quotes JQ CEO Bruce Buchanan, speaking yesterday in Melbourne on the prospect of JQ international ops from Adelaide, floating the idea of operating out of YPED as opposed to ADL as a result of high costs associated with operating out of ADL:

Not sure how serious they are about this option, every chance this is an opening salvo in any negotiations with AAL on the topic.

Don't think the comparisons betwen YPED and DRW, TSV and NTL are quite as relevant as the comparison to AVV as a potential second major airport for a capital city with restrictions imposed on ops by DOD (as has been the case with the proposed international terminal there). YPED seems a much longer shot than AVV for these sorts of ops considering the fact that there were a number of customers lined up to use any international terminal there, rather than just JQ- they lobbied hard.

Will be interesting to see whether the change of Defence Minister brings about a different approach to the issue of current/former defence assets and their use.

With what planes?

They just reversed themselves and said they don't want their 787-8s in May 2010 because their A332s are going out half-empty.

Magic carpet prices are at record lows I'm told.

Although that does seem rather more like JJ than JQ.....

The probably have in mind A320's as they are using them more and more on international ops.

I'd say so. An A320 should be well and truely able to make ADL-DPS and ADL-AKL. ADL-SIN might be a stretch though.

ADL-AKL should definitely be no problem , NZ have been operating this sector for a long time with A320

Would the frequency of these prospective flights justify the cost of moving to Edinburgh, though? It still seems to me that this as much as anything else is about having more clout in dealing with AAL.
