Air Algérie orders 4 ATR 72-500s


ATR and the Algerian national airline Air Algérie announced today the signature of a contract for the sale of 4 ATR 72-500s. This agreement, valued at some US $ 82 million, has been inked in Algiers in the presence of Mr. Amar Tou, Algeria’s Minister of Transports. Deliveries of the aircraft will take place in 2010.

These 4 ATR 72-500s, configured with 66 seats, will be equipped with Pratt & Whitney 127M engines as well as the latest technological innovations in navigational aids and communication instruments.

With these new aircraft, Air Algérie, whose fleet already includes 8 ATR 72-500s, will be able to offer its passengers an optimized service, in particular increasing its flight frequencies and opening new routes inside the country and to neighboring countries.

Also, within the framework of creating a training center by Air Algérie, ATR will assist in the installation, start-up and operation of a new flight simulator.

Commenting on this signature, Abdelwahid Bouabdallah, President and Managing Director of Air Algérie, declared, "Air Algérie has operated ATRs since 2003, and is satisfied. The 4 additional ATRs reinforce the uniformity of our fleet dedicated to the domestic network." In addition, he added, "Thanks to these new aircraft we consolidate our position amongst the most modern airlines on the continent, with one of the youngest fleets. The ATRs allow us to open up regions not able to receive our other types of aircraft. We are therefore doubly satisfied to be able to provide high-quality public service and coverage over all the national territory". Abdelwahid Bouabdallah also underlined "the high quality of assistance offered by ATR, which will allow us an optimal commissioning and use of our new training facilities".

"We are very happy to receive the renewal of the confidence of Air Algérie, a highly respected company that we are proud to count amongst our operators", declared Stéphane Mayer, Chief Executive Officer of ATR. "This renewed confidence shows the point to which ATRs are perfectly adapted to Air Algérie’s requirements for getting an optimal operation of its domestic and regional network. Thanks to the low cost per seat and of maintenance, ATRs remain the best placed aircraft to enable airlines to operate the most profitably". He concluded, "We are also very satisfied with the confidence of our customers in the Mediterranean basin, where this year we have booked orders for a dozen aircraft. This enables us to consolidate our strong presence in the region, where we currently have some twenty aircraft in operation".

Boeing, Air Algerie Announce Order for Seven 737-800s.



and Air Algerie announced an order for seven Next-Generation 737-800s today at Dubai Airshow 2009.

The airplanes will grow the Air Algerie Next-Generation 737 fleet to 22 airplanes. The new airplanes will help the airline leverage the efficiencies of a standard single-aisle fleet that delivers high fuel efficiency and related environmental improvements, said Air Algerie CEO Abdelwahid Bouabdallah.

Air Algerie is based in Algeria’s capital, Algiers.

"Our purchase of Boeing 737-800s is a natural progression for Air Algerie," said Bouabdallah. "One advantage is that our pilots and engineers are expertly trained and experienced with the airplane. The 737-800 adds great value to our fleet because it is very high-tech and reliable. Reduced operating and maintenance costs mean our airplanes spend less time on the ground and more time in the air making money."

Air Algerie ordered its new 737s with Blended Winglets, which further reduce fuel burn by approximately four percent.

A Boeing customer for nearly 40 years, Air Algerie operates a Boeing fleet that includes 10 737-800s, five 737-600s and three 767-300s.

"Air Algerie’s order reflects our company’s solid business partnership of nearly 40 years with the airline and the proven fuel efficiency and reliability of the Next-Generation 737," said Marty Bentrott, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of Sales for the Middle East, Central and South Asia.

Nearly 120 customers around the world have ordered more than 5,000 Next-Generation 737s. Boeing has more than 2,100 unfilled orders for the Next-Generation 737 valued at more than $158 billion at current list prices.

Earlier this year, Boeing announced performance enhancements to the Next-Generation 737 that will reduce fuel consumption by 2 percent by 2011 through a combination of airframe and engine improvements.

Boeing, Tassili Airlines Celebrate First Order for Boeing Airplanes


DUBAI, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Tassili Airlines of Algeria placed its first order for Boeing (NYSE: BA) airplanes with a signed deal for four Next-Generation 737-800s, announced today at Dubai Airshow 2009.

Tassili Airlines, a 100-percent-owned subsidiary of government-owned Sonatrach Petroleum Corporation, will use the 737-800s to transport employees and cargo between large Algerian cities and Sonatrach work sites. Tassili plans to put its 737s into commercial passenger service on domestic and regional routes in the near future.

Tassili Airlines was founded in 1997.

"Tassili's selection of the Boeing Next-Generation 737 is a testament to the airplane's versatility, range and other performance factors," said Marty Bentrott, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of Sales for the Middle East, Central and South Asia. "We offered a comprehensive package to support its unique employee-transport needs, including spares, support equipment, ground-handling equipment, tooling and training."

Boeing has more than 2,100 unfilled orders for the Next-Generation 737s and nearly 120 customers around the world have ordered more than 5,000 Next-Generation 737s. Recent performance enhancements to the airframe and engines will reduce fuel consumption by 2 percent by 2011.

Cessna Delivers Citation XLS+ to Algeria’s ENNA

DUBAI, November 16, 2009 - Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced today at the Dubai Airshow the delivery of a Citation XLS+ to the Établissement National de la Navigation Aérienne (ENNA) of Algeria.

The aircraft will be used by ENNA to fly flight inspection missions for the maintenance and calibration of Algeria’s aerial navigational equipment, using the industry-leading Norwegian Special Mission (NSM) calibration system.

ENNA general inspector Mahmoud Menbenkhelil said, “After an extensive selection process, we chose the Citation XLS+ as a proven aircraft in the demanding conditions of north Africa. The XLS+ embodies the optimal combination of performance, quality, efficiency and value that we need for our work in Algeria.
“Furthermore, by operating such a modern aircraft, with Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) and the state-of-the-art calibration system, we can execute our plan to market our flight inspection services to other countries in the region.”

Trevor Esling, Cessna’s vice president, International Sales, added, “The Citation XLS+ is very popular in the Middle East and Africa, and is well-suited to the role of flight calibration given its stability at low speeds and altitudes – a key requirement for flight inspection missions.”

The Citation XLS+ is part of the mid-size Excel/XLS family. The aircraft features the fully-integrated Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite and electronically-controlled engines from Pratt & Whitney Canada.

The Citation XLS+ travels at up to 817 kilometers per hour (441 knots) with a range of over 3,441 kilometers (1,858 nautical miles). At maximum takeoff weight, the XLS+ can fly from runways as short as 1,085 meters (3,560 feet) at standard sea-level conditions.

Based on unit sales, Cessna Aircraft Company is the world's largest manufacturer of general aviation airplanes. In 2008, Cessna delivered 1,301 aircraft, including 467 Citation business jets, and reported revenues of about $5.662 billion. Since the company was originally established in 1927, some 192,000 Cessna airplanes have been delivered around the world, including more than 6,000 Citations, making it the largest fleet of business jets in the world. More information about Cessna Aircraft Company is available at www.cessna.com.

Textron Inc. is a multi-industry company that leverages its global network of aircraft, defense, industrial and finance businesses to provide customers with innovative solutions and services. Textron is known around the world for its powerful brands such as Bell Helicopter, Cessna Aircraft Company, Jacobsen, Kautex, Lycoming, E-Z-GO, Greenlee, and Textron Systems. More information is available at www.textron.com.

TAP flights to Algiers start on 1 June at promotional rates

TAP is launching its new route to Algiers on 1 June, with rates from EUR 266 (taxes included). This promotion is valid for travel originating in the mainland (Lisbon, Porto and Faro), for the period from 1 June to 30 June.

The new TAP route will have three connections per week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, operated by Embraer aircraft with a capacity of 45 passengers. The Lisbon/Algiers flights leave at 3.45pm, arriving at Algeria's capital city at 6.05pm. The return flight, from Algiers, leaves at 6.50pm, arriving in Lisbon at 9.00pm.

Remember too that on 1 June, TAP is launching another destination, Marrakech, operating three flights per week, on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

With these new routes from June onwards, TAP will be servicing a network of 11 cities in nine African countries, operating a total of 63 weekly connections between Portugal and Africa. In Morocco, Marrakech joins Casablanca, another of the company's destinations, with 20 flights a week. In Cape Verde, TAP flies to Sal and Praia seven times a week each, just as it does to Dakar in Senegal.

Last year, TAP increased its Luanda operation to 10 flights a week. It also offers three flights a week in its joint Maputo/Johannesburg operation, as well as a once-a-week direct flight to the Mozambican capital. Lastly, the carrier also offers three flights a week to Bissau (four in the June to September period) and one to São Tomé.
