Etihad launches codeshare with Aerolineas Argentinas
The deal sees Etihad place its code on Aerolineas Argentinas flights from Rome and Madrid to Buenos Aires, and also on nine onward domestic routes in Argentina from Buenos Aires.
While Aerolineas Argentinas customers will have access to more than 100 destinations from Etihad’s Abu Dhabi hub via Rome and Madrid.
Mohammad Al Bulooki, Etihad’s executive vice president commercial, said: “This codeshare demonstrates the importance of Argentina as a vital travel market for Etihad Airways in Latin America given the growing tourism, cultural and business opportunities that exist between the UAE and Argentina.”
Aerolineas Argentinas announced it has stopped selling tickets to Venezuela
Argentina's flagship carrier Aerolineas Argentinas is no longer selling tickets to fly to Venezuela, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday, as violence and political uncertainty increases in Caracas. The airline had canceled a Saturday flight from Buenos Aires to Caracas two weeks in a row.
Aerolineas Argentinas announced it was planning rapid domestic expansion ahead of the launch of new competitors, including Argentina's first LCCs. The government owned airline group expects to grow domestic traffic by approximately 20% in 2017, to 10.5 million passengers, enabling it at least to maintain and potentially grow its market share above the 77% share achieved in 2016.
Argentina’s domestic market is expected to double in size during the first four years of the Mauricio Macri administration, which took over at the end of 2015. Aerolineas is already tracking ahead of its target of 50% domestic traffic growth for the four years ending 2019 and is preparing a new commercial strategy to fight off new LCC start-ups. The Argentinean domestic market is on the cusp of a tumultuous and dynamic period – as is the case when an LCC enters any domestic market for the first time.
In addition, Aerolineas Argentinas is also planning to order new generation widebody aircraft in 2018, which will be used to replace its remaining A340s in 2020 and its A330 fleet by 2024. New widebody aircraft should also enable the airline group to resume expansion of its long haul network and significantly improve the economics of its European operation. In the nearer term Aerolineas is looking at international expansion opportunities within the Americas using its future fleet of 737 MAX 8s. Aerolineas will likely use the new narrowbody aircraft to launch new international routes from Córdoba, as well as adding capacity on existing regional international routes from Buenos Aires.
Aerolineas Argentinas has a relatively small international operation and strategically needs to accelerate international expansion, although its short term focus is on further domestic expansion. The group flew only 2 million international passengers in 2016, and expects similar international traffic in 2017. Meanwhile the group’s domestic traffic, which has already more than doubled over the past five years, is expected to increase another 20% in 2017, to 10.5 million passengers.
Aerolineas Argentinas announced exceptional results in the first six months of 2017 compared to 2016. The results for June, in line with the company's consistent performance over the previous five months, show a 19% increase in transported passengers compared to 2016 and 25% compared to 2015. During June, the Group Airlines transported 944,853 passengers, with an occupancy rate of 78%, compared to about 74% registered in 2016 and 2015. Although June is characterized as one of the most challenging months in terms of meteorology, Aerolíneas returned to show a remarkable performance in punctuality, obtaining 83%, which contributes to consolidate the company as a leading company in this field. During the semester, the flag line rounded off 87% of punctuality (compared to 85% in 2016 and 78% in 2015) with more than 58 thousand flown flights and a 98.2% compliance in the first Six months of the year.
Aerolineas Argentinas starting today (02JUN17) plans to introduce additional domestic sector, with the offering of Cordoba – Termas de Rio Hondo route. Initially, the airline operates this route 3 times a week (Day 135), increasing to 6 weekly (Day x2). This route is operated by Austral Embraer E190 aircraft.
