Brazilian Aviation News - Part 16

Sat Oct 05, 2013 8:39 pm

Long time with just little news from Brazil.

It seems activity is now peaking again, as also we approach the World Cup (First game will take place in Sao Paulo - June 12, 2014 - just a little more than 8 months from now)
Airlines probably will wait till the drawings in Salvador, Bahia to start their plans in regards to routes.

But we keep some activity ...

* TP requested yesterday (Oct 4) a 3x weekly route LIS-MAO-BEL-LIS with A332 to begin first week of June 2014

* JJ announced they will join OneWorld

* LA will run a 6x weekly seasonal 3rd flight SCL-GIG during Jan-01 - Mar-05 due to the peak Brazilian Summer

* UA to fly a one time charter ORD-GIG-ORD creating on Oct 8 a 2nd flight GIG-IAH as well as a 2nd IAH-GIG on Oct 11 (ORD-GIG on Oct 7 and GIG-ORD on Oct 12)

* UA will fly AUS-GRU to cover the F1 GP demand for equipment and staff

* DL will fly on Oct 12 a one-time GIG-IAD flight

* TK will move to a larger equipment their IST-GRU-EZE route on Oct 20, back to Boeing 777-300ER

* AA will upgrade DFW-GIG to daily during IATA winter peak season (December to February)

* AC will move to a larger equipment their YYZ-GRU for less time this year

* BA will move their LHR-GIG route to B777-300ER and begin to offer First Class service later this month

* LH plans to move their FRA-GIG route to A340-600 in March 2014, seems ahead of the games, but still unclear if additional room will be required.

* AR move their new EZE-BSB route to a larger Boeing 737 compared to the current Embraer 190

* JJ to open GRU-ROS daily route.

And hope to have more soon !
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

There are no public info available, but from time to time some executives mention about their performance.

TK during the first months got 78%, most recent 75%

EK says that they got around 80-85%

EY mentioned about 60% in the first weeks and that this number "moved up"

QR no mention...

Ethiopian... some colleagues travelled with them and said around 70-75%


All of them seems happy... EK also will use larger planes on their DXB-GIG-EZE (Boeing 777-300ER). Easy to expect both DXB-GIG and DXB-GRU to become A380 during World Cup period.

Interesting...

Starting on 01APR14, LAN Perú will finally operate the LIM-IGU route on a daily basis.

What is up with AF CDG-GIG?
The 747s will finally go away, being replaced by 77Ws. That is an increase in premium seating and a decrease in coach seating.
But the daylight CDG-GIG seems to be going to 4 x week only in Spring 2014. Is AF moving frequencies from GIG into BSB? The changes happen at the same time BSB comes on.

AF has enough frequencies to operate BSB-CDG 3xw without changing GIG or GRU. The change of the 744 to the 77W is not entirely new, it also happened about 2 years ago IIRC.

The second flight sometimes has frequency drops it's not unusual as well.
Please insert a "smart" joke here.

What are Azul's options for growth? Will they continue flying to the "underserved" airports or does anyone think they will try to start competing on routes like SP to Rio?

I have not seen it go 4 x week any time recently. Maybe 2008/2009 during the downturn. Interestingly AF made rumblings today that it wants to fly the A380 CDG-GRU in mid-2014.

They already compete for SP to Rio with around 20 flights a day to both SDU and GIG, from their VCP hub.
Their plans include more flights from secondary hubs such as CNF and GRU, but right now they are not adding new point to point routes.

If there was no limitation with AR's fleet and with AEP slots, it would be much better they add day-light AEP-ASU-BSB with three frequencies operated by the 190, instead of upgauging the aircraft on EZE-BSB.

There is no new reason for AEP-ASU-BSB.
That would be three capitals of Mercosur connected by a route whose begining and end are in important Sky Team destinations and hubs of AR and of G3. Besides that, both BUE-BSB and AEP-ASU need more schedule options, the same way ASU-BSB is necessary. FInaly, connecting BSB with ASU would not be harder to keep than BSB's current connections with OPS and AUX.
