Varig Matches Webjet Fares!

Sat Sep 17, 2005 12:28 am

Varig iguala tarifas da Webjet para Brasília

Guarulhos-Brasília a R$ 149 ou R$ 188 e Galeão-Brasília a R$ 149 ou R$ 198. Webjet? Gol? Não, Varig. A copanhia aérea entrou pra valer na guerra tarifária, apenas nas rotas servidas pela Webjet. A classe de reservas é "S".


Essentially, Varig is matching fares offeres by GOL and Webjet, two LCCs, between GIG-BSB (R$149 or 188), GIG-BSB (R$ 149 or R$ 198). The fares apply only to the routes served by Webjet (the above + POA). 1 USD = 2.29BRL

Until recently, Webjet was not paying comission to travel agencies, policy that yielded them a 35% load factor fo last month. Since earlier this week, they announced they will work with the travel agencies.

What you guys think?

Cheers

Also, Webjet will begin flights to CNF and FLN. No dates were mentioned, but it's already bookable.

The second Webjet route will be GIG-CNF-BSB-GRU-FLS-POA-FLS-GRU-BSB-CNF-GIG and will begin on Oct 1st. The plane, a 737-300 (ex-Vasp).

Surprisingly the Government prohibited VARIG-TAM codeshare arguing they were creating monopoly in the market (antitrust).... Aren't G3, RG and JJ doing the same against WebJet?

Yes, it's expected for december. Their plans was 3 aircrafts this year, and up to 8 on 2006.
Due to the fleet size (1 733), their break even is higher, but with 3 planes, probably will be close to 50%
