Not sure whether OPO is also closed; it seems there are no commercial flights operating from there.


OPO its Oporto // Porto in Portugal....so its not an AENA spanish airport and jurisdiction, but indeed a Portuguese ANA-Vinci airport.
And all Portuguese ANA-Vinci airports remains operational by now...four in our main Portuguese Continental (Porto, Lisboa, Beja and Faro), and all in Madeira and Azores archipelagos.

I doubt that is the first ever flight between China and the Canary Islands. It is not uncommon that LPA is a tech-stop for non-commercial flights between Asia and LATAM.

It appears it was indeed the first ever flight (a 16h flight, nonstop!), it carried medical supplies purchased by the regional government of the Canaries, and the event was even covered by the press:

Those are ferry/positioning/delivery flights, not commercial flights. PUE34 was indeed the first ever commercial flight between PVG and LPA. It lasted for 16h and was non stop.

Commercial aviation is the part of civil aviation (both general aviation and scheduled airline services) that involves operating aircraft for hire to transport passengers or multiple loads of cargo.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commercial_aviation

It was indeed classed as a commercial flight by a commercial airline that usually carries passengers if we want to get that technical :)

- 27/04/2020 - Restaring interisland flights (currently between IBZ, MAH and PMI).
- 01/06/2020 - Resuming flights between islands (Balearics and Canary) and the rest of Spain. Flights to some destinations in the following countries would also be operated from this date: Europe (Germany, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, UK and Switzerland), Africa and Middle East (Morocco, Tunisia and Israel) and the USA (MIA and JFK).
They also wish to restart flying to other destinations in the Americas during June: Argentina (EZE, COR), Bolivia (VVI), Brazil (REC, SSA, GRU), Colombia (BOG, MDE), Cuba (HAV), Ecuador (GYE, UIO), Honduras (SAP), Mexico (CUN), Panama (PTY), Paraguay (ASU), Peru (LIM), Dominican Republic (SDQ, PUJ), Uruguay (MVD), Venezuela (CCS), albeit on reduced frequencies.

The resumption of flights will be subjected to the lifting of the travel ban by the Spanish government. Those dates are mere speculation from the company

For the last few weeks Wamos Air aircraft have been flying very often to the Philippines, usually from US destinations with a stop in MAD before going to MNL or CEB. I have noticed that they originate from SFB, JAX, FLL, MSY or LAX to name a few. Can anyone confirm if they are related to the cruise industry, flying workers home?

That is probably wrong, as fever is not common enough to identify a COVID-19 case reliably. Many just have a slight cough or slight throat pain but are equally infectious, or even no symptoms at all.

Yes cruise line workers are being repatriated back home. Some their contracts were up anyway and some have been laid off or decided themselves they want to cease employment and return home.

I don't wish to be pesimistic, but I don't think we will have much traffic this summer, anyway. Bars, restaurants, hotels... won't be able to open, initially, until well into the summer season.

In my personal experience, most staff are locals. However, I also know some people from many regions of Spain whom work seasonally at various touristic hotspots. Regarding those working at german bars, british sports bars, etc they are sometimes staffed by people from those countries.

What is wrong ? Maybe for you they take the wrong decisiones but they are going to place cameras in the Spanish airports , right now they let you fill out an a sheet with some questions and medical staff evaluate if you are on do go in or not, there is nothing wrong that’s what they are doing right now

British Airways Owner Said to Seek Price Cut on Air Europa Deal
April 22, 2020, 2:47 PM


IAG aims to lower 1 billion-euro sum to reflect pandemic hit
Discussions on terms sought with Spanish firm’s owner Globalia
British Airways owner IAG SA is seeking to slash the agreed 1 billion-euro ($1.1 billion) purchase price for Spain’s Air Europa as the value of both airlines is hit by the coronavirus, people familiar with the situation said.

IAG plans to discuss adjustments to the terms of the deal with Globalia Corp., Air Europa’s parent, to reflect the deteriorating market environment, according to the people, who asked not to be named as the matter is confidential.

Agreement for the acquisition of Air Europa for €1 billion

International Consolidated Airlines Group ("IAG") and Globalia ("Globalia") are pleased to announce that definitive transaction agreements have been signed under which IAG’s wholly owned subsidiary, IB OPCO Holding S.L. (“Iberia”), has agreed to acquire the entire issued share capital of Air Europa ("Air Europa") for €1 billion to be satisfied in cash at Completion (the “Acquisition”) and subject to a closing accounts adjustment.

In other words, IAG has agreed to buy Air Europa from Globalia. Cash is coming from IB.

If the sale of Air Europa is up for renegotiation, then IAG will have an involvement with the talks
Iberia being named in the past as a purchaser is likely something to resolve the legalities - eg ensure that Air Europa retains Spanish air traffic rights, labour relations, etc...

Don't imagine that IAG would have agreed to Iberia spending 1 billion euros without any sort of input...

Air Europa's value has dropped. Hard to work out the current figures, but even in this scenario Air Europa should take on the offer if they want to survive this crisis.

IAG has spanish VAT and registration number. As for the buying, as long as the buyer is an EU company, is no problem. You just change the owner of some actions.

This came on the news today:
"The Government prepares urgent help for Iberia"

https://elpais.com/economia/2020-04-27/ ... beria.html (link in Spanish)
I looked for a link in English, without success, but it basically says that the government will provide finantial support to Iberia and other operators, to help them weather this crisis. It also mentions the sale of UX to IB, and how the two parties will need to agree on a new price, since the two have much to loose if they both walk away from an agreement.
The last paragraph also mentions that according to IATA, Spain will be the most affected by this crisis, which will see a decrease in passenger numbers of 114 million in 2020. This will mean that $15.500 millions will be lost, as well as 901.300 jobs that may be at risk.

I suspect the Government hopes for the deal between IB and UX to get through. It'll be less controversial for the public funds to be divided into the main two Spanish carriers. I wonder if that actually is the best, maybe it's time for Spain to bet everything on just one carrier...

What do you think future brings for Air Nostrum? Being not owned by IAG (or IB), it operates just as a franchise. They aren't commercially independent, having IB to sell the 100% of their operation on behalf of them. They were about to sign in a deal with Cityjet to merge. However the covid crisis has changed this and the agreement is unlikely to happen. The group had diversified very much its business, showing interest in many other areas, such as high speed rail service.

The remains of the pre-pandemic ANE's network was mainly based in Madrid. Little international presence (just regional services to France, and Italy), plus a link to Frankfurt, some flights to the North of Africa, and quite a few routes within Spain, being the most flown EAS, PNA, VLC, ALC and AGP, among others.

Do you see IB and ANE giving support to each other via the current agreement after all this?

This is not correct. They are commercially independent from IB and IAG. To give you an example: they were flying during the summer from VGO to LTN, VLC, SVQ and ORY/CDG.
https://www.farodevigo.es/gran-vigo/201 ... 02516.html (link in Spanish).

Also, don't forget they also have a base in VLC and are also owners of Hybernia Airways (Irish registered airline) and Med Ops (maltese registered airline).

There's commercial independence and there's commercial independence. Yes, Air Nostrum is responsible for the ticket revenues on the flights they operate, but they sell tickets pretty much entirely through Iberia/IAG - effectively a franchise. Does Air Nostrum's position count as true commercial independence or is it only half way there ? Something perhaps to debate

Both IAG and ANE are indepentent business. As ANE is an ACMI airlines, and they don't sell tickets on behalf of their customer .ANE's aircraft are/were also leased by other airlines (Binter Canarias leased 2 CRJ-900 from them, so did LH, BT and SAS also employs their CRJ-900/1000).

Correct. But still the major "booking engine" for ANE is IB these days. I was wondering what level of collaboration could IB/ANE maintain after the covid. Do you see ANE well positioned in this industry?

IMHO, I don't think ACMI airlines will be ok during this crisis. Their customers are facing brankrupcy, reducing their fleets or even disappearing. They won't need need the extra lift provided by these ACMI specialists. ACMI airlines like Wamos Air and Plus Ultra, are flying cargo to keep their planes busy.

The space and human stupidity are endless. Maybe the space is not... but the human stupidity for sure!

AGP will see a big hole with the demise of DY and SAS bases in Costa del Sol Airport.
It's kind of a huge market Scandinavia-Malaga.

It will be interesting to see if all this capacity can be replaced when tourism returns back to normal.As the Spanish government I would look at IAG to fill any gaps in return for a support of the merger with UX. Maybe the UX operations and brand would be perfect to fill those gaps.

“Do they still have a base in LHR?” Quote Clyden Airways

I am only aware of them being headquartered in Dublin with a base in Malaga. I know a few crew flying with them and Malaga was the only base. I think they operate(d) a lot of SAS services from LHR due to the cheaper cost base

Yeah, SAS Ireland still have a crew base at LHR, all currently furloughed under the government scheme, but still employed by SAIL/CAE

AA resumes flights to MAD:

American Airlines is resuming flights to continental Europe for the first time since the coronavirus shut down, by launching daily nonstop service from DFW Airport to Madrid.

The first flight out of DFW is scheduled to depart at 4:50 p.m. Thursday. Return trips from the Spanish capital to DFW will begin Saturday, and continue with daily arrivals and departures thereafter.

Fort Worth-based American Airlines has maintained a daily flight from DFW to London but has canceled most other international flights during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Before catching that DFW-to-Madrid flight with the intention of setting off on a classic European vacation, prospective travelers are strongly encouraged to check into the COVID-19 restrictions that are still in place in Spain. That country, which was among the hardest-hit by the virus in March, is in the early days of what promises to be a long, gradual return to normalcy.
