Europe's aviation strike spike could signal a cyclical peak - with downturn to follow

21-Jun-2016 3:36 PM

One swallow does not make a spring and nor does a rash of aviation strike news guarantee a turning point for the aviation industry. But the signs are ominous. In the month of Jun-2016 (to 20-Jun-2016), there have been 136 articles on CAPA's website mentioning the word 'strike'. This compares with 81 for the first 20 days of Jun-2015. For 2016 so far (1-Jan-2016 to 20-Jun-2016), the 's' word has occurred in 594 articles – about 20% more than in the same period in each of the past two years. If this rate continues, 2016 could be the biggest year for strike-related articles since before the global financial crisis.

The vast majority of the Jun-2016 articles – 80% – relate to Europe. A significant source is air traffic control disputes, particularly French ATC. There have also been strikes and/or strike threats involving airport workers and ground handlers. Among European airlines, Air France has generated the most coverage for its ongoing dispute with its pilots, and it may also face a cabin crew strike. Lufthansa has not yet faced a strike by its employees this year, but has not yet reached new agreements with pilots or cabin crew after industrial action last year.

History tells us that labour's demands grow as profits rise. The apparent increase in industrial action this year could be a signal of an approaching peak in the airline profit cycle. There are other causes of unrest, such as impending French labour legislation, but the correlation reflects some history.

Avianca works to attain its leverage leverage goals by slashing its capex commitments through 2019

6-Jun-2016 11:27 PM

Latin American airline group Avianca Holdings is joining its counterparts based in the region by taking steps to de-lever in order to equip itself properly to withstand continuing economic weakness in the region. One of the most important changes Avianca has undertaken in 2016 is re-engineering its order book with Airbus to cut deliveries from 2017 to 2019, which is pivotal in order for Avianca to reach its leverage targets.

Nearly every Latin American airline group during the past year has taken several steps to slow its fleet growth as the region’s economy is forecast to contract for a second consecutive year in 2016. Although Avianca’s yield declines improved (reduced) sequentially from 4Q2016 to 1Q2016, the second quarter is typically the weakest period for the airline, which could mean that its yield performance will slide before possibly showing some slight improvement in 2H016.

Despite the tough conditions, Avianca has a relatively optimistic outlook as it works to rework its fleet commitments and cut costs. Avianca still plans to expand capacity in 2016, but its growth is falling well below the 8% increase that the company posted in 2015.

Cathay Pacific diversifies in Europe, British Airways seeks China JV, as their partnership devolves

15-Dec-2015 3:40 PM

In a changing aviation world, as specificity and pragmatism become the norm for partnerships, every relationship is being reevaluated. Part of this is due to altered market dynamics, part to new aircraft types making thinner routes viable.

British Airways and Qantas moved to a different relationship when Qantas decided it needed to partner with Emirates; and now another of aviation’s old world partnerships, British Airways and Cathay Pacific, is showing signs of strain as Cathay reinforces its European network and BA seeks better access in mainland China.

For decades the airlines have used two of world’s pre-eminent hubs – at London Heathrow and Hong Kong – to transfer passengers beyond. While the relationship continues, it is having to evolve in order to meet the pressures of the new world.

Cathay has needed BA’s short haul Heathrow feed to sustain about two of its five London flights (a sixth will be added in Sep-2016 with a new London Gatwick A350 service) while BA has unsuccessfully sought Cathay’s access to other Asian markets, in particular mainland China, and Australia. Cathay has grown its online presence in Europe from six cities in 2010 to 10 in Sep-2016. More Hong Kong-Europe non-stops will open as the A350 fleet grows. Local partnerships, albeit small, are following in many ports.

BA’s mainland China presence is a strategic imperative, and Cathay is blocking favourable connecting flights. Instead BA is looking to grow its online China network and partner with a Chinese carrier; China Eastern and China Southern are the obvious picks. In tandem with this, British Airways is adding a second Shanghai flight using peak London Heathrow slots.

China's secondary airlines plan long haul growth. 10 airlines to have widebody aircraft. Part 1

18-Nov-2015 12:33 PM

Chinese airlines have finally kick-started international growth, expanding 37% in the first eight months of 2015. This equates to an additional 7.38 million passengers in 8M2015 compared to 8M2014. This almost equals the 7.39m passengers Chinese carriers added between 8M2010 and 8M2014. The volume growth Chinese carriers used to achieve over four years is now being achieved over just a single year.

With countries continuing to liberalise visas for Chinese nationals, and the Chinese government directing airlines to expand internationally, this faster international growth is the new norm. Although most international Chinese traffic is short haul, the accelerated growth is seen with long haul expansion: Sichuan Airlines launched long haul flights in 2012 and not another Chinese carrier went long haul until Xiamen Airlines in Jul-2015. Beijing Capital Airlines followed in Sep-2015, and 2016 could see two more airlines – Tianjin Airlines and Tibet Airlines – fly long haul. 2016 will see at least 10 Chinese airlines operate widebody aircraft. This report looks at the long haul growth from China's secondary carriers that will increasingly become intercontinental names.

Avianca joins airline rivals, revising margins downwards, as economic conditions worsen

3-Oct-2015 2:25 PM

Latin American airline group Avianca is attempting to mitigate tough conditions in the region, particularly a sharp devaluation of the currency in its largest market Colombia. Steps the company is taking to counteract weakness in Colombia and throughout Latin America include a domestic capacity reduction within Colombia and fleet adjustments that include both deferral of aircraft deliveries and grounding of its subfleet of Embraer 190 aircraft.

Similar to most airlines operating in Latin America, Avianca is attempting to match its supply with demand and shore up yields, even if that means sacrificing some market share, as is the case in another one of its large markets Peru.

The worsening conditions in Latin America have forced Avianca to join most of its rivals operating in the region to issue a downward revision of its EBIT margin for 2015, a discouraging sign for a company that embarked on 2015 in a seemingly better position than its rivals.

Iberia: the Futuro looks bright for IAG's star pupil as its confidence and growth are transformed

30-Sep-2015 4:36 PM

Iberia is emerging as the star pupil in the IAG airline academy, studiously following its 'Plan de Futuro' restructuring programme. It has learnt how to achieve labour productivity improvements and unit cost reductions. With Iberia Express, it has demonstrated it is possible for legacy airlines to launch subsidiaries that combine an LCC cost base with a full service brand.

After receiving punitive beatings in the form of capacity reductions, its diligence is now being rewarded with new aircraft orders and double digit ASK growth in 2015, thanks largely to Latin American expansion (and returning to routes suspended during its restructuring). Brimming with new-found confidence, Iberia is IAG's biggest contributor to ASK growth in 2015.

Iberia is not yet qualified to graduate by recovering its cost of capital, but is on track to achieve this, in accordance with IAG's target, by 2017. As with all airlines, sustainable profitability may require some benevolence from the macro environment, which can deliver harsh movements in unit revenue and in fuel prices. However, Iberia's sharp focus on labour CASK, fuel efficiency and non-fuel overheads should soften the impact of any deterioration in external conditions.
