Air Algérie caps hirings as foreign competition hits revenue
Last month, the CEO highlighted that the state-owned airline had seen a serious decline in sales for the first nine months of the year but declined to give an exact figure.
However, according to the TSA news agency, Bakhouche painted a grim picture to staff in an open letter dated November 19. In it he said Air Algérie finds itself in a "very difficult situation" marked by negative financials caused by, among other factors, increasing costs, direct and indirect competition which has impacted revenue inflows, an overstaffing in unproductive roles, constraints of expensive public service, and a heavy debt overhang.
"In this context, and concerned with the preservation of jobs and the national economic plan, I appeal to the conscience and responsibility of all: workers, managers and unions, for an effective mobilization towards containing everyday costs," he said adding that "no economization, however small, can be neglected."
"The payroll, being a major component of our operating expenses, and its maintenance at current levels, seems to me to be an absolute necessity to try to curb our expenses and the decline in our operating results," he continues.
Bakhouche said that while there would be no lay-offs, there would not be any new hirings either.

Air Algérie seat capacity up 7.5% in 12 months; Budapest and Porto among new destinations; 31% of traffic flown on domestic routes
Last year, Air Algérie began flights to Budapest, one of a few new additions to the carrier’s route map in 2016. Overall the carrier’s weekly seat capacity has risen 7.5% in S17 when compared to S16. The North African carrier is far from dynamic however, as currently no new routes are planned for the rest of this year, nor are there any for 2018.
Air Algérie is the national airline of Algeria, operating to destinations across Africa, Europe, North America and Asia. The airline currently operates a fleet of 58 aircraft, made-up of: 15 ATR 72-500s; nine A330-200s; five 737-600s; two 737-700s; 25 737-800s; and two 767-300s (of which one is currently stored). The average fleet age is currently just over 10 years old.
Air Algérie is by far the largest airline in its home market, with the carrier controlling 65% of all seats from Algeria in 2016 (up from 63% in 2015), with French carrier Aigle Azur second with 11% of seats and Tassili Airlines third on 3.9%. Overall, Air Algérie is Africa’s fifth largest carrier in relation to passengers carried, with it serving 5.5 million people in 2015. It trails behind EGYPTAIR (8.8 million passengers in 2015), Ethiopian Airlines (7.0), South African Airways (6.6), and Royal Air Maroc (6.2) when consulting data from the African Airlines Association (AFRAA).
Serving over 5.5 million passengers per annum
Acquiring data about Air Algérie is not as easy as it appears, with the airline not regularly publishing its accounts in an annual report. However anna.aero has been able to track down some figures for the airline via AFRAA, with 2015 being the last year when data was published. That year the carrier handled 5.5 million passengers, up 5.8% when compared to 2014, and up by an impressive 91% since 2007.
Air Algérie Teams Up With Amadeus
In a bid to bring superior travel experiences to customers on a global scale, Air Algérie has announced that it will be embarking on a 10-year transformation programme to upgrade nearly all its operational and travel management systems through a new partnership with Amadeus.
The milestone agreement, which will support the carrier's expansion, was finalised during a signature event held in Algiers.
Air Algérie will reduce 30% its number of flights to Paris from March 6 until March 9 2017
The French Civil Aviation Directorate has asked airlines to reduce their flights to Paris by between 25% and 33%. A restriction is due to a strike by air traffic controllers in France that may have consequences on air traffic. Although the strike was announced to last 3 days, the strike union announced that if the negotiations were not conclusive the strike will continue. The consequences for air traffic are likely to continue.
Air Algérie announced it had signed just an air transport agreement, which allows Air Algerie and Tassilli Airlines to serve Gabon. Under the terms of this agreement, it is also indicated that it will enable the airlines of the two national airlines Air Algérie and Tassili Airlines to serve Gabon on the basis of reciprocity in accordance with the legislation in force in both countries.
The agreement, which was signed on 20 April in the Gabonese capital by the Director of Civil Aviation and Meteorology at the Ministry of Public Works and Transport.
