AZ To Close FCO-CCS From April 2015

Thu Mar 19, 2015 2:12 pm

According to Italiavola Alitalia will terminate operations in Venezuela as of April 2015. Mr Cassano, CEO of the new Alitalia has made the announcement during a roadshow trip to Brazil.

(Link in Italian only...)

He also suggested that the aircraft will be redeployed to Bogota although no official confirmation has been given.

Just following the trend? What do you think?
Don't worry about the world coming to an end today...it's already tomorrow in Australia!

Not surprising given the hell foreign airlines are going through to get their money out of Venezuela. Its sad because nearly all European airlines flew to Caracas. TAP, BA and Swissair have at times flown to CCS. Will Iberia, Lufthansa or Air France ever stop flying to CCS ? IF they did CCS would fell very disconnected.

Alitalia and TAP decided to stick with Caracas hoping that went things return to normal, they'd be in prime position. They were Willing to take on loses until the storm passed. And they are realizing that business under Chavez wanna be Mr. Maduro will never be normal.

So Alitalia is basically saying. "nah, never mind, forget this"

TAP is not far behind

Most of airlines serving CCS have opted to redeploy to BOG and PTY.

There is still a respectable amount of Portuguese and Italian expats living in Venezuela, but the market conditions changed and now maybe it is no longer justifiable to keep CCS up.

Almost all international airlines serving Venezuela have downgraded equipment to the smallest type available for the route. CCS used to have A340s, 747s and 767s from European carriers, now the standard is the Airbus A330 (and I am sure that if they could exploit the route with a smaller aircraft, they surely would).

At the rate that Venezuela is going, it wouldn't surprise me if AF downsized to a 737-200 flown in from FDF.

In the past CCS used to have it, but as a complement to the daily Paris flight. Even between 1976 and 1982 AF had a weekly Concorde service... amazed and sad to see how things have changed.

Are you back in the 90's?  

AF has 2 A320 based in PTP.

And AF A330 config is already quite alright for this route with 208 total seats onboard.

Val

Next one for me to leave this route is TP.

TP narrowbodies can't make it from FNC to CCS non-stop. TP Venezuelan market is mostly FNC-centered.
AF will have a license to print money (!) for CCS-China traffic as long as CA won't go for that route.
CA already flies to GRU, so if the Chinese see it more convenient to fly its nationals, chances are there could be an one-stop PEK-CCS flight someday.
I'm not on CM's payroll.

Even with one of the largest Portuguese expat communities in the world, the operational cost of having 1 - 2 weekly flights does not justify to have the route open. Besides, the high costs of tickets and the payment of these in foreign currency limit even more the existing market.

I am unsure whether Venezuela has subscribed fifth freedom rights with China. But a PEK - GRU - CCS flight could work by the time being.

If it's a moneymaker then it can only come from the premium cabins as the Economy fares ex Europe to CCS are normal and usually comparable or lower than BOG. As long as revenues from Venezuela cannot be transferred to Euorpe I don't think that one can se this a making money.

well over 1000 USD for the cheapest eco fare isnt that bad add all.
and yes, CCS is still getting a nice amount of premium traffic (specially LH), they have a lot of Oil traffic + Chinese, Russians, Belurussians etc. using the service in Business and First.

Revenues in Venezuela are basically not existing anymore, the very few tickets they are selling in local currency are used for local payments... the big part of the ex CCS tickets these days is sold abroad - with very high prices.

Their should be a reason why LH is bringing into CCS the A330 with the newest first versus BOG were they are still flying with the old F class (using A346), and the new pty flight were they even will offer only 18 J seats.

Not bad, but at peak times very normal. Outside the Summer travel peak season Europe - CCS goes for about USD 800, which isn't bad either but not extremely high given the duration of the flight.

There is more Y demand to BOG (and with higher fares so higher revenue). Not to mention that the cargo capabilities of the A340-600 are much better than the A330 (important for a market like BOG). As they haven't retrofitted any of the FRA based A340-600s (yet), it will be hard to send a A340-600 with new F to BOG. Moreover, as far as I know only 2 A333s haven't been retrofitted with new F and 4 (including those who don't have the new F class) don't have the new C class. Therefore, CCS doesn't seem to get special treatement as the majority of the aircraft have the new premium cabins.

You might well get both!
As BOG restricts aircraft performance due to its altitude, a non-stop BOG-FCO would most likely be unviable with Alitalia's A332 or 772s (only perhaps a 788 might do it without a significant restriction on paylaod), and so a triangular route would be a very possible option: FCO-BOG-PTY-FCO. Either that, or a stop in Cartagena instead of PTY -after all, Italian airlines -including Alitalia very recently- have done charter flights to CTG.

Moreover, Panama's government will subsidise flights to Panama, therefore making it even more appealing to fly there.

We'll have to wait and see.

I don't see the point for AZ flying to PTY. Not only isn't there any need from a Skyteam perspective (KLM flies daily and AF 5 weekly in S15, 3 weekly in W15). Moreover, LH will enter this market and unless I missed some O&D relation between Italy and Panama, I doubt AZ can make money flying to PTY (especially when it would be a triangular flight).

Well, the word is that there are talks between AZ and the Panamanian governemnt. As for the other reasons, I thought that I was clear: Panama subsidises airlines for flying there as it wants to improve connectivity and attract more tourists (something like US$5m a year -and it has clearly worked!), and since technically it's likely that a stop would be needed out of BOG, then using a place where there's income for flying there would make sense.

LH needs a 4 engine plane to BOG because of he altitude.

Getting USD 5mio is tempting, but if (opportunity) costs are higher, you still loose money. Moreover, I doubt the subsidies will last forever and thus at one point you'll need the traffic and yield to make it porfitable. Finally, a triangular flight is very uncompetitive. I know, AZ need it if they want to serve BOG, but a stop in Columbia (CTG as you mention), makes much more sense (PTY would add to the flight duration and thus make it even less atractive for the BOG bound passengers to take the flight).

I am sure that AZ will take the different factors into consideration. The PTY stop would mean about 5% longer than one CTG, but no cash incentives.
TP does the tringular with BOG and PTY. It is no runaaway sucess, with traffic to both being on the weak side, but at the same TP has kept the operation like that, even though it could fly BOG-LIS non-stop (even if its A330s are too restricted, it has A340s)

Quoting Rafabozzolla (Reply 25):

900 Km difference. That means over an hour flying, and over 6 tonnes of additional fuel needed (rough, but conservative figures)
That means that if AV in its A330s (soon going to 787 for a reason) already can't carry any cargo the distance to FCO would mean having to leave 50 empty seats apart from taking no cargo so that the fuel needed can be lifted instead. I doubt that is commercially viable for a market like BOG, with a limited demand for premium seats.

Yes, but the new services supplied by European airlines heading to either Bogota and Panama City are not necessarily based on the fact that they couldn't operate profitable in Caracas.
Both BOG and PTY are vibrant airports serving important regions and financial centers. This fact disregards the current situation in Venezuela.

Although the economic growth in Panama and Colombia is a factor, the deteriorating situation in Venezuela has spurred TP and AZ to seek a connecting point in the region. Tap already started operations in Colombia and Panama, benefiting from Star Alliance hubs in the region, and it is rumoured that they will drop CCS soon. The case of Alitalia as being a Skyteam member might be different, as its sole codeshare partners in the region are Delta and Aeromexico. I presume that we will see AZ opening MEX first before BOG.

That hasn't stopped KL and AF from code-sharing with CM and adding connecting possibilities @ PTY hub.
It's rumoured CM code-share with KL/AF and CM F.F. MileagePlus not able to earn miles when flying KL/AF to/from PTY encouraged CM to start its own F.F. programme.
AZ is welcome in PTY but KL, AF, IB, TP, soon LH and possibly AZ will sure have a tough fight for PTY-Europe non.stop flights passengers ahead.

Alitalia is clearly in disadvantaged compared to other European carriers operating in Caracas: LH FRA-CCS, IB MAD-CCS, AF CDG-CCS and so forth.
On the other hand, none of these carriers are deploying daily flights on CCS-Europe at this time.

Interesting. TAM will soon reduce GRU-CCS from 3x weekly to a weekly service. LA will now operate the SCL-CCS-MIA route three or four times a month instead of a dedicated weekly service.
