AC Pleased With New Intl Routes Out Of YUL!

I found the following article (sorry, french only) about AC wanting to start more routes out of YUL and how pleased they are with the results of its new international line-up, namely the new flights to GVA, BRU, ATH, BCN (and the resumption of FCO)


http://www.cyberpresse.ca/voyage/201...rpresse_B2_voyage_264_accueil_POS2

Here are the highlights of the article.

On certain days, the flights to Barcelona had more Americans than Canadians.

On certain days this summer, the majority of passengers on YUL-GVA were connecting onto BEY.

YUL-ATH and YUL-BCN averaged a load factor of 90%, which is high for new routes, especially considering the impact of the recession in Greece (and the not so ideal conditions in Spain either !). AC is so pleased with both these routes that it will increase the season in which these flights operate next year.

BRU also exceeded expectations. AC had planned to operate this flight daily summertime and 4x weekly wintertime, but as of next year, it should go daily year-round, thanks in no small part to its Star Alliance partner SN Brussels, which codeshares the flight and offers excellent connections to points beyond.

As for the new routes, AC wishes to open YUL-BEY and some North African destinations (maybe Casablanca, Tunis or Cairo)

The article also states AC's interest in serving Johannesburg and Guangzhou, but from another AC hub (obviously ! No market to these places from YUL)

Also worth mentioning (but not in the article), as of June 1, 2011, YUL-BRU will be operated by the A333, at least for the summer season.

YVR-CAN is a given

YYZ-JNB is freaking 8304mi. It would be the 5th longest route in the world if launched today. A 77L can handle it, but not full payload. It's only slightly shorter than DXB-LAX. AC better make sure there's a large enough O&D load on this route to make it worthwhile, cuz AC will totally be bleeding if it's filled with people transiting.

I do know more China flights will be added to YVR and some to YYZ. The volume of travelers from China is increasing dramatically.

I have been expecting AC to add a flight to somewhere in Africa with an easier connection to South Africa. Maybe if the rumoured merger of the the African carriers and tie in with LH this will be a no brainer.

I definitely can see a BEY and quite possibly a Cairo addition to YUL.

And it could only get better if AC had better connecting traffic into YUL from the US.

Connecting to these flights from the Southern US usually involves a "detour" via YYZ, a la IAH-YYZ-YUL-BRU, which is even worse on the return leg in as much as it requires clearing Canadian and US immigrations.

I am pleased to see that these routes are doing well as I think YUL has not been used to its potential previously. The BRU route seemed like an obvious winner with SN in *A so I am not at all surprised to see that do well .

@ Thenoflyzone - I am curious about the exclamation in the title ? It looks as though the success of these routes has come as something of a shock to you , were you expecting them to perform very poorly ? If so , would you mind sharing your thoughts behind that point of view - thanks .

I strongly suspect that AC will pursue YYZ-JNB. I even blogged about it (http://airceo.com/89p). As you say a 77L can do it but my suspicion is that it will be a proving ground for the 787.

With Senegal being so generous as an African stopping ground, what about a YYZ-DKR-JNB routing?

Don't get me wrong a same plane service with fuel stop in DKR could work - SA have been doing this for years to the US - but a non-stop service on the 787 would blow the competition out of the water. It would crush any existing one-stop possibility. It would be a shorter trip and let's not forget the every toughening visa restrictions being placed on South African nationals. Transiting through the US/Europe is increasingly less desirable.

GVA no surprise. UN has a 2nd tier HQ there, ICAO is HQ'd in YUL and is a UN agency, hence potential for decent J travel. Onward traffic to BEY also no surprise, and BEY will grow even more when/if it goes non-stop.

BRU was there in the past, but with SN feeding/taking onwards within *, only make sit work better. If an A333 goes onto route next summer, it has to mean something else gets downgauged to a 763. Which route might that be ?

Casablance & Tunis I think might pleasantly surprise a lot of North American travellers. I've been to Casablance and it is a beautiful place. Jsut don't criticize the King.

YVR-CAN I thought was already slated to go next spring. That would require a 763 from, well shucks, BRU ?

JNB for now I think is a stretch due to payload limitations on the 77l as indicated, and also due to very good cnx in FRA with LH's services, both to JNB and CPT.



Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

With AC's growing transatlantic operations, I wonsder if this could be the trigger for additional transborder flights to feed them. As is now, I think there's: Los Angeles, Denver, New York/LaGuardia, Chicago/O'Hare, Houston, Newark, Hartford, Washington/National, Washington/Dulles, Fort Lauderdale, and Orlando. Seasonally, there's also San Francisco, Phoenix, Miami, Tampa, Fort Myers, and West Palm Beach. In the past there was also Atlanta and Philadelphia with CRJs. While it is never going to be Toronto, I could see them adding back a few routes and maybe making something like SFO and maybe PHX and MIA year round.

There's no current bilateral between Canada and Senegal so no service to DKR is possible for the time being.

GVA is also the location of IATA's executive offices and several hundred staff. YUL is their head office and many departments are based there.

Here you can really feel the vacuum which Sabena left when collapsing in 2001. At that time, SN would fly BRU-YUL daily with a 333, and the yields were reportedly good.

YUL-BEY would make sense indeed, but which frame would be relevant there? 763?

YUL-CMN would also be quite relevant, given the closer ties of Canada and Morocco.

YUL-CAI sounds logical, and YUL-IST may even come with the 788.

The 788 might also be the right frame to re-instate LYS, AMS, VIE, LIS, DME, who knows....

DXB/JXB, ADD, DKR and LOS may also come at some stage.

It was goiing to be a 763 when they were within a month or so of starting YUL-BEY service a few years ago, before the Canadian government withdrew permission, apparently under pressure from the US government for security-related reasons.

With AT's nonstop service I can't see room for 2 carriers. And almost no high-yield traffic.

For some reason AC doesn't compete to many of the major U.S. hubs (PHI/MIA/DET/ATL) from YUL. These markets are soley served by U.S. legacy carriers and tend to have from 3 to 6 daily flights, mostly via regional jets.

If my memory is correct,the authority was revoked the day before the service was to commence and the flight was booked to capacity.

I forgot about those two.

I'm actually kind of surprised that AC can't make YUL-SFO work on a year round basis; it's a hub-hub route. I'm guessing that they use the capacity from that in part for the increased Florida/Arizona/Sunshine flying in the dead middle of winter.

YUL-DTW probably isn't big enough for two carriers, and DL has the much stronger hub on their end. Most of the MIA traffic is served via FLL or AA's 738s. That leaves Atlanta and Philadelphia; the former is probably too long to be an effective CRJ route, and a CRA or E75 is probably too much capacity. Philadelphia, on the other hand, would seem to make sense as a 1X/2X daily CRJ or DH1 route; especially since AC doesn't codehare with US on the route.

Pittsburgh might also work as a daily CRJ or Dash flight if timed for the international connections though I'd expect to see upgauges to Toronto first (though several large Pittsburgh based corporations have significant Quebec operations- ie: Alcoa, US Steel, HJ Heinz, and WESCO).

The AC/ME codeshare has taken a lot of passengers away from AF this summer. This should not affect its long term relationship with AF, and the possibility of joining SkyTeam.
MEA is also cooperating with another * airline: SN Brussels on various BRU-Africa routes. MEA's BRU route is now 3 weekly year round. Too bad AC's YUL flight timing does not allow connections on the MEA BEY flight from BRU.

AC used to operate MIA-YUL up to 3x daily; now the route is at 3x weekly. WestJet's success at FLL has certainly affected AC operations at MIA.

My bet is on CAI or TUN. Since MS left, we could easily see a 3 weekly seasonal YUL-CAI service on B763, or the same thing for YUL-TUN.

TU has been wanting to serve YUL for some time now, but they just don't have the aircraft for it. Three A332's are on order, but don't know when they will be delivered.
