Anac Authorized AV To Run BOG-GRU 8x/week(1 Extra)

Wed Aug 09, 2006 11:49 am

Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) authorized Avianca to run an extra frequency during 6 weeks (August 12, 19, 26, September 2, 9 and 16)

Flight AV95 will depart BOG at 08:25 and arrive GRU at 16:10. On the way back AV96 departs GRU at 17:05 and arrives BOG at 20:55. The flight will be operated by Boeing 757-200.

As per ANAC, this special approval can be extended as RG is not flying the route, and the demand needs at least this extra flight.

Good to see a daily light BOG-GRU and an afternoon flight, better for who don't live in Sao Paulo.

Tks for the information, Lipe. Also note that AV will deploy the B763 to GRU 4 x week, which with the new weekly frequency, will be a major boost in capacity on the GRU-BOG market.

Thanks for this note Hardi, i haven't noticed it. AV is taking advantage of being the only one flying Brazil-Colombia nowadays. Seems that a new revision on the bilateral will take place with a major upgrade to 14x weekly flights. Gol is looking for a MAO-BOG flight.

Interesting. Where did you obtain this info? Not that I don't believe you, but AV is very tight on 763 utilisation with only 2 frames, and schedules still show 4x weekly 762s.

Anyway, BOG-GRU can definitely support 763 service. Avianca's loads on the route were of 77% during June06, plus high yields and good cargo loads.

I can confirm that as of 16 September 2006 AV will replace the B757 with the B767-300 on BOG-GRU 4 x week (Mon, Tue, Fri and Sat), further increasing its presence in GRU (probably the best performing route for the airline).

The deployment of a further flight with the B757-200 increasing frequencies to 8 weekly already represents an increase in 15% in total seat capacity.

Great news for AV, hopefully, Oceanair can capitalize this on their GRU-GIG route.

IIRC, that would be BOG-CCS. But GRU is very important for AV and Oceanair.

Depends on what criteria.

Within South America, BOG-CCS, BOG-UIO and BOG-LIM in strict order move more passengers than BOG-GRU.

In terms of loads, BOG-EZE registers the best loads for AV within South America, though they only operate 4x weekly flights on the route.

In terms of overall station performance, CCS is the one that yields the highest revenue per month.

But in a per-flight basis, BOG-GRU is indeed one of the best in Avianca's entire network.

BOG-CCS is not necessarily the best performer, only the one which throws in the most revenue.  Smile

Where will the 763 come from? They can't sacrifice the CCS 763 because if I recall correctly it is sent to CCS during the afternoon between the JFK noon arrival and late night departure.

Good to hear that. I only wish VH could say the same about BOG  sarcastic

BTW, how is Venezuela - Brazil traffic being handled?
There is more than one month without flights betzeen them. I suppose AV gets a big slice of it.

Apparently the 763 will indeed be the one used on the BOG-JFK-BOG routes. On the days that GRU will see the 763, JFK is scheduled to receive the 762. In theory, CCS doesn't get affected because the same 763 can perfectly do the BOG-CCS-BOG rotations in between the GRU flights.

The other 763 on the fleet, which is used for BOG-MIA during the day, and BOG-LIM during the night, is still scheduled throughout this second semester for those two routes.

RG will resume 6 x week GRU-CCS as of 28 August. However, with the newly imposed 10% tax on air ticket sales in Venezuela you can expect revenue of airlines operating in CCS to drop drastically. A similar measure introduced in Paraguay (6% tax) led to AA to axe ASU from its network.

Tks for the clarifications.

RG will keep the advantage of price as they will fly GRU-MAO-CCS and also to be the only one on the route. Some projects like the Oil Refinery near REC and the potential deal with 32 vessels to be produced near GIG, as well as the news that one major brazilian corporation will also help Venezuela to build a new shipyard will help to improve business traffic between tthe 2 nations. Even with this tax, the route will be for sure a winner in terms of profitability. Gol is also looking to fly (but it depends on a new bilateral) Brazil-Venezula.

Agree, but the 10% tax will certainly make CCS less attractive. Also, if RG routes the flight via MAO it will also make it less attractive considering that the bulk of the Venezuela-Brazil traffic is concentrated in GRU.

Small correction Hardi. It is not a tax that pax have to pay. It's the comission that Airlines must pay to travel agencies for each ticket sold.
